COVID-19 Update 2

As COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts have declined, WHOI is beginning it’s phased opening plan.  The institution will be open, but the campuses will still be closed and open only to those that have been approved.

NOSAMS continues to be open and to operate with a partial staff in this new re-opening phase while respecting conservative physical distancing as outlined by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and WHOI policies. We are accepting and processing samples. NOSAMS does not expect an increase in turnaround times as a result of COVID-19. Please send questions or comments to
