Masks are currently not required to be worn indoors. All STAFF, beneficiaries, and visitors in the 92d MDG (including Dental Clinic) are still required to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth except when otherwise exempt due to age (< 2 yo), safety, or health requirement.
Mask Wear. Per Consolidated Department of Defense Coronavirus Disease 2019 Force Health Protection Guidance (updated 8 Aug 2022), all service members, federal employees, onsite contractor employees, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask while indoors on Fairchild AFB when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Community Level is high. The CDC Community Level can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/covid-by-county.html
The Installation Commander may direct that masks be worn when the transmission risk is increased. If masks are required, masks should be worn properly, by fitting snugly against the sides of your face, and must cover your nose and mouth. Exceptions: Masks may be taken off indoors when an individual is alone in an office with floor-to-ceiling walls with a closed door; for brief periods of time when eating and drinking; and when the mask is required to be lowered briefly for identification or security purposes. Masks are not required during active utilization of the fitness center pool, while showering in the locker rooms, and while actively performing fitness testing under the guidance of the fitness assessment cell.
Physical Distancing. All individuals on Fairchild AFB will practice physical distancing, specifically by staying 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from other individuals who are not from an individual’s household to the maximum extent possible, mission permitting. Physical distancing should be practiced in addition to other mitigation procedures; such as proper mask-wear, refraining from touching your face with unwashed hands, and frequently washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Updated Return to Work Policy/Flowchart. All military members must continue to self-monitor for potential symptoms daily and comply with the current “Return to Work” (RTW) Guide, dated 6 Jun 2022 (Attachment 1). Personnel are restricted from their primary duty location if symptoms or exposure warrant quarantine or isolation. Members who are restricted from their primary duty location may be required to telework from their alternate duty location (e.g., residence) to the maximum extent feasible and telework with children in the household is permissible. If a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19 or is symptomatic, you must follow the “close contact” guidance on the RTW Guide.
