Due to concerns regarding the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the NSF-ICF is taking preventive measures and suspending its tour program until further notice. Any groups that have been impacted by the tour shutdown will be prioritized when we resume tour operations. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
