Laboratory response to COVID-19

MIT Lincoln Laboratory continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and will adapt Laboratory policies as needed. Lincoln Laboratory complies with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Defense, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and MIT Medical guidance on infection control and prevention. We expect our employees, visitors, and contractors to comply with this guidance.

At this time, masks are optional.

Effective May 11, 2023, MIT Lincoln Laboratory no longer requires vaccination for employees and subcontractors, but defers to the CDC guidance, which currently strongly recommends COVID-19 vaccination.
