Los Alamos is a tight-knit mountain community that consistently ranks as one of Livability.com's Best Small Towns in America.

Thanks to the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos' presence in the area, Los Alamos also has a college-town vibe that's a major draw for young professionals, families and retirees. COVID Vaccination Mandate:N3B is required by contract to comply with the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force Guidance concerning implementation of Executive Order 14043 on the subject of vaccination against COVID-19.

In December 2021, that mandate was stayed by way of an action in federal court. Therefore, at this time, N3B highly encourages, but does not require employees to be vaccinated.
