The approximately 150 Gloucester-based NOAA employees furloughed during the federal government’s partial shutdown are back at work, and administrators now are determining how best to resume operations halted by the government’s work-stoppage that ended last Wednesday.
 
NOAA spokeswoman Maggie Mooney-Seus said regional administrator John K. Bullard has appointed an internal task force and charged it with reviewing all work that was in progress at the time of the Oct. 1 shutdown, then figuring out a way to make up for the lost time.
 
“We lost some time, and now we have to prioritize what work has to be done,” Mooney-Seus said Monday. “We’re in the process of doing that, and we’ll have more information once this group is finished going through the stuff they’re working on.”
