TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – The 60th Air Mobility Wing commander will implement phase two of a three-phase approach to reopen the base beginning Monday, June 1, 2020.
Colonel Jeffrey W. Nelson, 60th AMW commander, will also decrease the base’s Health Protection Condition to BRAVO to continue protecting Team Travis while allowing some base services and facilities to reopen.
Travis’ three-phase approach, designed by medical experts and base leadership, is in alignment with California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s recovery plan.
“I am incredibly appreciative of our Airmen, civilian employees, contractors, retirees and family members being so patient and flexible during this unprecedented time,” Nelson said. “We are ready and eager to begin the long transition to normal operations.”
The change in HPCON level and implementation of phase two will allow some base facilities and services to reopen once they meet state and county requirements.
HPCON BRAVO is a moderate health protection condition in response to public health risks in the local community. All Travis AFB personnel should 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, base members should continue to practice social distancing, remaining 6 feet apart from others at all times, refrain from physical contact such as hand shaking, fist bumps, etc. When members cannot practice social distancing, they are required to wear appropriate face coverings.
