HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. --
Hurlburt Field officials have lowered the Health Protection Condition (HPCON) Level to Bravo in response to COVID-19 conditions.
“This transition was initiated based on recommendations from our Public Health team and supported by data showing improvement in the safety and health conditions on this installation and in the surrounding community.” said Col. Jocelyn Schermerhorn, commander of the 1st Special Operations Wing. “We are not out of the woods yet; there remains a moderate disease threat and real risk of exposure to personnel due to the ongoing Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Although the transition to HPCON Bravo will permit service activities to partially resume, members must remain diligent.”
HPCON Bravo indicates a moderate risk of disease and it remains imperative that personnel continue to adhere to base policies regarding the use of face coverings and physical distancing. All individuals on Hurlburt Field will follow the DoD guidance and wear cloth face coverings when they cannot maintain six feet of physical distance in public areas or work centers. Additionally, cloth face coverings must be worn while entering, exiting, and transiting through publicly accessible common areas in any installation building or facility to include: the Commissary, BX, and Shoppette.
Additionally, the Aderholt Fitness Center will expand fitness center access to dependents and retirees on Oct. 20. Please visit the official 1st Special Operations Force Support Squadron website for specific information.
