COVID-19 Takeaways for Radiological/Nuclear Incident Planning, Response, and R&D Fact Sheet


The COVID-19 pandemic offers a rare opportunity to conduct real-time research in support of identifying future incident planning and research and development (R&D) priorities for radiological or nuclear (R/N) emergency response. National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) has partnered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to document lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic that can be applied to an R/N incident. 

The work described in this fact sheet has been completed. This fact sheet will remain published in the archives library for future reference. Please contact the National Urban Security Technology Laboratory at NUSTL@hq.dhs.gov for additional information on this work.
