COVID-19 Update for Employees

COVID-19 Update for Employees – PDF

With the county moving to approve new levels of reopening more businesses in the upcoming weeks, it is important we remain steadfast in our commitments to all the protective measures in place at our NASSCO facilities. In addition, as reported earlier this week, face coverings are now mandatory in San Diego and at NASSCO. You must wear a face covering while at work.

It is also important that individuals who experience coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or those who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past two weeks—even if not experiencing any symptoms—not come to work, and report in, using the COVID-19 reporting line at (619) 544-8585.

This week we had more positive case reports and the Safety team continues to perform contact tracing and sanitizing activities wherever needed. One of the additional measures for disinfecting that is being deployed is the use of fogging. This utilizes a hydrogen peroxide solution that is safe for humans and effective against the virus. The process is performed on second shift and employees can typically re-enter the area soon after the fogging is complete.

On another front, we are pleased to report that five previously positive employees have fully recovered, returned back to NASSCO, and are doing well. We have also seen more than 30 employees, who have sought testing in the community, report back with negative results. If you would like to get tested for COVID-19, the county is offering free testing services by appointment only. To find a location closest to you, and to make an appointment, please visit

or call (888) 634-1123, Monday through Friday, 7am to 7pm.

We are thankful for the NASSCO family working together and supporting each other at this time.
