NEWINGTON, Conn. This afternoon, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont announced that the state was closing all non-essential businesses for “the foreseeable future,” joining New York in taking this step to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The Department of Homeland Security’s recently-published guidelines for essential industries exempts, among others, Defense firms. This means that PCX will continue to maintain standard production schedules until further notice.

All production employees should follow their normal work schedule and call-in procedures. Support staff already working altered schedules or working remotely to reduce transmission should continue to do so.

We will maintain and add to measures already in place in order to protect associates in our facility and mitigate community transmission. Customers and vendors with production or procurement related questions should contact their regular PCX representative.

Thank you.
