CURRENT SITUATION

The Current Travis AFB - Health Protection Condition: (HPCON) Bravo 

The installation commander declared Health Protection Condition Bravo due to the continued presence of the Delta and Omicron variant. Personnel should continue to report for duty and check with their chain of command for unique workplace impacts or changes in telework policies. 

HPCON BRAVO does include utilization of the Trusted Traveler Program for base access. Other approved base passes can be worked through the standard channels at our Visitor’s Center. Please contact the Visitor's Center at 707-424-1462.

The California Department of Public Health requirements are below.

In order to align ourselves with our local government partners, and to help mitigate the transmission of COVID-19, all individuals on Travis AFB shall wear a mask while in indoor public settings, to include official work centers. 

Previously approved DoD & DAF exceptions to the indoor masking requirements remain in effect:

  • when an individual is alone in an office with floor-to-ceiling walls with a closed door;
  • for brief periods of time when eating or drinking while maintaining physical distancing consistent with CDC guidelines and instructions from commanders and supervisors;
  • when the mask is required to be lowered briefly for identification or security purposes;
  • when necessary to reasonably accommodate an individual with a disability;
  • when necessary to reasonably accommodate a religious belief;
  • when underlying health conditions that prohibit the wear of a face covering exist and the individual is in possession of medical documentation from a health care provider outlining such a condition and the restrictions the condition places on wear of a face covering;
  • when actively participating in physical fitness activities and either proper physical distancing is maintained or additional measures are implemented to mitigate the threat of transmission;
  • when use substantively interferes with the proper wear and use of personal protective equipment necessary for the accomplishment of one’s military duties;
  • when clear or unrestricted visualization of verbal communication are essential to safe and effective operations.

Current as of December 15, 2021

This means:

  • Social Distancing: Maintain to the maximum extent possible in areas like indoor meeting areas, conference rooms, break rooms and dining areas. The larger the distance between others, the lower chance of spread. For areas like the BX food court, try to sit only with those in your same household.
  • Masking.  There are some changes to current mask policy effective DEC.15, 2021. Please check with your chain of command for the latest updated mask policy.  

The commander’s intent for our health protection condition is to limit any impact to our ability to execute the mobility mission while safeguarding the health of our Team Travis Airmen, families, and community. 

The Travis AFB Installation Commander has reinstituted mask guidance that was implemented on 8 Nov 2021, with the following adjustments:

1) Large meetings = mask wear. For example, if the attendance exceeds the capacity of a conference room table, consider wearing masks. 2) More than ever, ALL members on the installation are expected to have a mask readily available.
3) All “public locations” – BX, commissary, DFAC, Gas Station, CDC, FSS-like entities require masks as appropriate.

8 Nov 2021 Mask Guidance

General Recommendations for Mask Wear

Outdoor spaces

o Fully-vaccinated personnel: May participate in outdoor activities and recreational activities without a mask with both fully vaccinated and non-fully vaccinated individuals. In areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases, consider wearing a mask for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated. o Non-fully vaccinated personnel: Masks are not required outdoors unless engaging in recreational activities or events with other members where social distancing is not possible.

Indoor Spaces:

o Universal masking will continue in public areas such as the Commissary, Base Exchange and David Grant Medical Center, as well as those with continued high-risk populations such as the Child Development Centers and Youth Center. o Commanders may authorize exceptions to mask use for their respective work centers and non-populated areas. Risk assessments will be based on time, distance, and capacity of the area. o All personnel, regardless of vaccination status, must be prepared to wear face coverings while visiting other units or work centers IAW their respective policy.

Additional Guidelines

- Adhere to social distancing, cleaning, and hand hygiene protocols IAW the CDC and HPCON Bravo Guidance. n Perform routine cleaning and disinfection. n All individuals, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask on public conveyances (e.g., planes, water transport, buses, trains, taxis, ride-shares) traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

NOTE: This requirement is extended to DoD transportation assets (including Government vehicles) and hubs, including those outside the United States, excluding ships, submarines, and aircraft in their operational environment. n All individuals who have not been fully vaccinated (service members, civilians, onsite contractors, and visitors) must wear masks on DoD installations and adhere to CDC guidance. n Members that are fully vaccinated with a weakened immune system must also wear a mask on military installations n Customer service or public-facing work centers should expect to wear masks or face coverings at all times. n Signage should be clearly posted in all work centers where masks are required

Definition of Fully Vaccinated

Per the CDC, individuals are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19, 2 weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series (e.g., Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines), or 2 weeks after administration of a single-dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine). This guidance also applies to COVID-19 vaccines that have been authorized for emergency use by the World Health Organization (e.g., AstraZeneca/Oxford).
