non-mission critical travel can resume with approval
from the Institute/Center Executive Officer, and with a
strong recommendation that the travelers follow the
safety guidance and test for COVID-19 prior to returning
to onsite work. Any positive test result from onsite staff
should be reported to OMS who will provide additional guidance.

Federal Contractors has been added to the master contracts. Task Order Contracting Officers will not need to add the clause to individual task orders.
