Effective March 2,2023: David Grant Medical Center staff, patients and visitors are to mask per individual and patient risk IAW the Defense Health Agency memorandum published Feb. 16. Individuals who meet the below criteria are still required to wear a mask:
- Individuals experiencing respiratory symptoms (cough, runny nose, congestion, etc.)
- In recent contact with someone experiencing respiratory symptoms
- Have tested positive for a respiratory illness in the last 10 days
DGMC 3E COVID-19 testing and kit distribution location will cease daily operations.
California’s Public Health Emergency ended on Feb. 28, and as a result, Solano county is closing its free testing sites.
To obtain a COVID test, patients will need to schedule an appointment with their primary care providers. If your provider refers you for off-base testing,
patients can visit Walgreens or CVS; however, there may be cost associated with this testing. For at-home tests, patients can pick up their home test
kits at 3E until March 1. Beginning March 2, COVID test kits will be available every 1st Wednesday of the month.
To order home test kits through USPS, https://special.usps.com/testkits. Four (4) free at-home tests from USPS can be ordered per address.
- (As of 23DEC) The CDC COVID-19 Community Level within Solano County changed from MEDIUM to HIGH on the 22nd of December 2022. This is caused by a continued uptick of COVID-19 in the Solano County area and drives a change to the Travis Air Force Base HPCON level. Given this uptick, the Travis Air Force Base HPCON level will change to HPCON Bravo on 23 December at 1200L.
What does this change mean for everyone? The most current masking guidance remains the same - masking indoors is not required for any individual, regardless of vaccination status, across the installation with the exception of David Grant USAF Medical Center, the BX Pharmacy and the Passenger Terminal, which will remain fully-masked in accordance with DoD policy. Individuals may continue to wear a mask indoors if they choose.
Indoor gatherings are no longer limited and all base facilities/operations should be fully open and functioning.
NOTE: Mask wear is still required for personnel with symptoms, after recovery from a positive test, and after exposure to someone with COVID-19, in accordance with the Consolidated DoD Coronavirus Disease 2019 Force Health Protection Guidance.
This change in DoD policy follows the latest recommendations made by the CDC and the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force.
