The National Capital Region has seen an uptick in COVID-19. If you haven’t been vaccinated, please get your vaccination. Please continue to remain vigilant and follow the CDC guidance regarding social distancing, washing hands and wearing cloth face coverings — especially with the highly contagious Delta variant now the dominant strain in the U.S. Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall is following the Deputy Secretary of Defense’s face covering guidance for fully vaccinated individuals who are at least two weeks beyond their final dose and who are no longer required to wear face coverings indoors or outdoors on post. Service providers and tenant commands may retain a face covering requirement, so please keep one handy. To be clear, the mask mandate remains in place for all nonvaccinated individuals.
JBM-HH remains at Health Protection Condition Bravo. We continue to be focused on protecting the force, preserving readiness and mitigating the risk of transmission among personnel.
Thank you! Stay safe and be well.
