The major disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect all of us.  Integration and testing of the James Webb Space Telescope are among the activities impacted. NASA has re-evaluated the project schedule and announced a launch readiness date of October 31, 2021. After consulting with the JWST Users Committee, STScI, NASA, ESA and CSA have finalized the review schedule for Cycle 1 proposals.

The JWST Cycle 1 General Observer (GO) proposal deadline will be 08:00 pm Eastern Time (ET) on Tuesday November 24, 2020.

We are announcing the deadline well in advance, so that proposers have flexibility to prepare proposals as their COVID-impacted schedules permit.  The Call for Proposals<https://jwst-docs.stsci.edu/jwst-opportunities-and-policies/jwst-call-for-proposals-for-cycle-1> remains unchanged from its release earlier this year. All proposal tools and documentation<https://jwst-docs.stsci.edu/> are available to proposers.

The JWST Telescope Allocation Committee (TAC) will review the proposals in February 2021 and recommend the Cycle 1 GO science program for announcement in March 2021.

We send best wishes to our user community and their families in these challenging times.
As always, please contact the jwst helpdesk<http://jwsthelp.stsci.edu/> if you have any questions.
