The document provides interim policy for the employment of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), otherwise known as drones during this period of social distancing as a precaution for COVID-19.
The use of drones is encouraged where mission efficiencies clearly warrant their employment, and as a means to facilitate social distancing to enhance personnel safety. The primary goal in the utilization of UAS as a means to facilitate COVID-19 social distancing is the protection of PennDOT employees, contractors, consultants, and their families.
