Los Alamos National Laboratory will operate without restrictions or closures Monday, regardless of what happens with the federal government shutdown, officials said Friday.

“All DOE federal employees are expected to report to work on your next scheduled work day and subsequent work days unless you have previously approved leave or are given formal notice by your management not to report to work,” said DOE Press Secretary Shaylyn Hynes. “Similarly, contractors should continue to execute on contracts unless and until otherwise notified.”

According to the Department of Energy’s Lapse of Appropriations Plan, in the event of a shutdown, the Los Alamos National Laboratory would continue its operations using fund balances from prior years, if they are available.

If there are no available balances, only programs related to the safety of human life and the protection of property would continue.
