MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY CONTACTS: Updates to FAQs about Records Management during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Last April, NARA issued an FAQ to answer several questions we received about federal records management and the COVID-19 pandemic. Today we are issuing an update to the COVID FAQ, particularly updating the answers to questions about scheduling records and using the General Records Schedule (GRS). Our office has been monitoring questions about the GRS and employee health and safety records and is working on updates to the existing GRS to cover some of the records now being created as federal employees return to facilities.
If you have additional questions or require assistance, please contact your NARA appraisal archivist or the GRS team.
