JBAB moves to HPCON Alpha

By Staff Sgt. Nilsa Garcia Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Public Affairs

Effective on  Sept. 14, 2022 Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling moved to HPCON Alpha. 
Washington D.C. and its surrounding counties (Alexandria City, Arlington, Fairfax, Montgomery, and Prince George's counties) have remained in a low
CDC community level since Aug. 11, 2022. Locally, case rates, hospitalizations, and death rates continue to trend downward.
The following updated HPCON Alpha measures are in effect for all 11th Wing
units and facilities as of  5 a.m. on Sept. 14, 2022:

a. Continue allowing telework opportunities, flexible scheduling, and
teleconferencing or videoconferencing as your mission allows.
b. Conduct in-person meetings at no more than 90 percent occupancy rates.
c. All organizations, to include morale, welfare, and recreation activities,
indoor food services and customer service areas, will maintain room
occupancy rates at no more than 90 percent occupancy.
d. Mission essential functions, such as exercises, can safely be performed
in person.
e. Outdoor intramural sports can continue.  Indoor intramural sports will
abide by the 90 percent capacity rule.
f. Fitness testing capacity will be based on the ability to socially
distance when performing indoor portions of the test.
g. Continue focusing on prevention, staying home from work when sick, and
cleaning protocols.
h. Except for 316th Medical Squadron facilities, mask wear is not required
indoors. Members may choose to continue mask wear at their discretion and
will not be prevented from doing so. Per Defense Health Agency policy,
masking is still required in all 316th MDS facilities. All personnel should
wear a mask when sick.
i.  All personnel are highly encouraged to receive the COVID-19 bivalent
booster vaccine, which is expected to be available at the 316th MDS in the
coming week. Annual influenza vaccines are mandatory for active-duty
personnel and highly encouraged for civilian team members. The 316th MDS
will publish information once each vaccine is available at the Medical
Treatment Facility.
COVID-19 drive through testing remains available at the 316th Medical Squadron on Joint Base Anacostia Bolling Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Self-testing kits are available for pick-up for all DoD ID card holders at the COVID-19 drive through line from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. No appointments are required for either service.
