ZAPATA Responds to COVID-19: At ZAPATA, we know the work we do is critical to our clients and their missions. We are committed to being a trusted and dependable partner, especially during these trying times. As ZAPATA responds to the COVID-19 threat, we want to reassure clients of our continued support of their missions—and that ZAPATA will remain OPEN to serve their needs.

However, to protect the health and safety of our employees, clients, and the general public, we have established the following safety initiatives to adapt our operations to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation. In addition to recommendations made by the CDC and other state and local health officials, we are implementing several steps to further protect you and our employees, and to do our part to protect the general public.

  • We are not hosting or attending large gatherings, such as: conferences, lunch and learns, and technical training events.
  • We are allowing our workforce to perform their duties and collaborate as necessary from remote locations.
  • We are restricting travel and limiting visitor access to our office locations.
  • We are offering our clients the option of video conferences and teleconferences in place of in-person meetings.
  • We are requiring employees returning from trips to and/ or through “Hot-Spot” locations to self-quarantine for 14 days prior to returning to work.

ZAPATA believes COVID-19 is a very serious threat to our society and will continue to monitor the situation closely. We will inform you immediately if future developments lead to a change in our plans. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Marty Ray, Senior Vice President Strategy and Planning, at
