In a press release, NASA defined mission-essential work as “ that which must be performed to maintain critical mission operations to ensure the schedule of time-sensitive mission-critical launches, or work to protect life and critical infrastructure.” The Commercial Crew Program is considered a critical element to maintain safe operations at the ISS. In the meantime, NASA Astronaut Chris Cassidy is also continuing to prepare for an April 9th launch to the ISS, he is safe from contamination in pre-flight quarantine in Star City near Moscow. He will launch aboard a Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. App users click here to see the interview.
