PETERSON YOUTH CENTER JULY 6 CLOSURE
Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) continues to spread and is an increasing force health protection threat worldwide. Peterson Air Force Base is closely monitoring and preparing for any impacts to our mission. Our multi-disciplinary COVID-19 Working Group is meeting regularly to monitor and mitigate impacts to our mission. We will continue to assess the situation closely and remain prepared for any contingency.
Additionally, Mr. Adam Skibell (our EAP counselor assigned to Peterson) is set up for teleconsulting via Zoom. If you have personnel who are interested, all they need to do is contact him at his mobile number (314-302-7322) and they will schedule a time to meet. Mr. Skibell will send them a Zoom invite, and at the time of the meeting, personnel will just click on the link and it will auto connect to the session.
