TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – The 60th Air Mobility Wing commander has directed Health Protection Condition (HPCON) CHARLIE in response to COVID-19, beginning today.

Col. Corey Simmons, 60th AMW commander, has implemented HPCON CHARLIE in response to the increased spread of COVID-19 in the local community, substantial public health alert in the state, and to align with Solano County’s imminent shelter at home order effective Dec. 17, 2020.

“Our primary focus is this health and safety of our Airmen and their families,” Simmons said. “We will balance the critical need to protect our Team Travis community while safeguarding our mobility mission.”

Essential missions will continue on the installation. All visitors to the installation will require an approved base pass. Airmen and families are encouraged to limit personal travel except for essential purposes. For additional local impact, please visit: https://www.travis.af.mil/Coronavirus/.
