(2200) Fairchild AFB AtHoc message
/ Published March 24, 2020
The 92 ARW/CC has implemented HPCON CHARLIE for Fairchild AFB to protect Team Fairchild’s health and safety and to best posture the installation to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. Consistent with Washington State Governor Inslee’s stay-at-home order, all Fairchild AFB personnel should also stay at home with the following exceptions: to obtain food, care for a relative or family member, seek necessary health care, or proceed to an essential job as specified by unit leadership. Also, continue to practice strict hygiene measures such as frequently washing and/or sanitizing hands; wiping common-use items with disinfectant; covering mouths and noses with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing; and staying home when sick. Additionally, continue to practice social distancing and refrain from physical contact such as hand shaking, fist bumps, etc. All on-base gatherings are cancelled from now through the next two weeks at a minimum, unless they are mission-essential as directed by your unit commander. In such cases, group size should be limited to the smallest practical and include proper social distancing. Continue to stay educated through Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcements, routine health alerts, regular preparedness activities, and your chain of command.
Fairchild AFB health protection condition (HPCON) change is valid as of: 2000L.
