The Trinity Site Open House scheduled for April 4, 2020, at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) has been canceled due to health concerns related to the pandemic coronavirus that has now spread to New Mexico.
The decision was made by WSMR Commander Col. David Trybula as a precautionary measure to protect an expected turnout of more than 5,000 participants from throughout the United States and overseas, as well as the employees and volunteers supporting the event.
“The Trinity Site Open Houses are an important part of our WSMR heritage that we are honored to share with an enthusiastic public. We know how much this means to so many people to visit the open houses, and it is with deep regret to cancel the event.” said Trybula. The decision to cancel the open house follows the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to cancel gatherings of 250 participants or more in locations where there is minimal to moderate threat of the virus spreading. The next Trinity Site Open House is scheduled to occur on Oct. 3, 2020. – 30 – John “Drew” Hamilton White Sands Missile Range Public Affairs Bldg. 1782 Headquarters Ave. White Sand Missile Range NM 88002 (575) 678-5932 (575) 678-1134 PAO Workflow
