The Trinity Site Open House, scheduled for April 3 at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), has been cancelled due to protracted health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The decision was made by WSMR Commander Brig. Gen. 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 employees and volunteers supporting the event.
"It’s with deep regret that we must cancel the upcoming open house that offers such a special opportunity to share our WSMR heritage with such enthusiastic participants from around the world," said Gen. Trybula "But with the continued health threat posed by the worldwide pandemic, it’s my duty as commander of this base to ensure all available precautions are taken to protect the public and our WSMR family."
The Trinity Site Open House on Oct. 2 is still scheduled to occur;
however, any decision to cancel the event will be announced immediately by
WSMR Public Affairs to the media and on its social media pages.
