PANAMA CITY, Fla. —

The Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) is adjusting the work schedule by maximizing telework opportunities of its nearly 1,500 employees.

Safety is a top priority at NSWC PCD. By implementing teleworking as an option to encourage social distancing, NSWC PCD is reducing the exposure of its workforce and the local area to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“To protect our workforce, we are allowing the majority of our employees to telework,” said Capt. Aaron Peters, NSWC PCD commanding officer. “We still have a national defense mission, and a cadre of mission essential personnel will continue to report to work.  Whether from home or from the base we will ensure we meet our national defense mission requirements.”

NSWC PCD is the nation’s leader in the research, development, test, and evaluation of mine warfare systems, mines, naval special warfare systems, diving and life support systems, and other missions that occur in the littoral or coastal regions.
