By | June 29, 2020
Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling is decreasing the Health Protection Condition for the installation from CHARLIE to BRAVO effective June 29. To lower the risk to the JBAB Team, many facilities on the installation have been closed for more than two months. Some JBAB facilities will reopen as they are determined to be able to do so safely. All facilities and services that reopen will still need to adhere to social distancing guidelines and other procedures to help ensure the well-being of all patrons.

Navy civilian police and the U.S. Air Force Elite Gate Guard began joint gate operations June 12 providing physical security for the installation. The integration of the Elite Gate Guard into Navy installation access operations provides an opportunity for both the Air Force Defenders and the Department of the Navy civilian police officers to learn the others' culture and ensure a smooth transition in October when the Navy transfers lead service responsibility for the base to the Air Force.
