Current Situation

Travis AFB - Health Protection Condition (HPCON) Bravo (+) 

On Aug. 16, 2021, the installation commander declared Health Protection Condition Bravo (+) due to the continued presence of the Delta 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.

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.  No change to the current mask policy effective July 29, 2021. We continue to strictly follow DoD guidance, which currently dictates all individuals must wear a mask indoors.

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. 

Masking policy effective July 29, 2021:

The base will return to wearing masks or face coverings to the maximum extent while indoors. This applies to all personnel and visitors to the installation regardless of vaccination status.

  1. Masks on indoors to the max extent possible (everyone…vaccinated or not) 
  2. If not vaccinated – previous rules still apply outdoors (must wear a mask)
  3. Consistent with previous DoD guidance, if you are in an office by yourself, you can remove your mask

NOTE:  A base-wide exception will be made in the fitness center, where masks or face coverings can be removed during active exercise.

Continue to communicate with your chain of command for specific concerns. For additional questions on specific hospital or base services visit www.travis.af.mil/coronavirus or follow AFMS - David Grant USAF Medical Center - 60th Medical Group, Travis AFB and Travis Force Support Squadron.
