07/16/2021

ATTENTION: We have transitioned back to HPCON BRAVO due to the recent steady increase in COVID cases in the Hampton Roads, now meeting criteria to take HPCON Bravo measures. Here is a reminder of some of the required measures under Bravo:

- Mask wear guidance is not altered. Non-immunized personnel are still required to wear masks.
- Allowable workplace occupancy is restricted to less than 50% Specific occupancy is determined by unit commanders.
- Common areas should be modified to maintain social distancing requirements (removing furniture, etc.) or may be closed

There should not be a significant change in operations for local base facilities (MWR, FFSC, etc.) with the exception of occupancy restrictions.

All Hampton Roads area installations have been directed to transition back to HPCON B.

Hampton Roads COVID case rates have steadily increased over the past 9 days.

To maintain HPCON Alpha, the daily average of new coronavirus cases must be less than two new cases per 100,000 population in the past seven days and Hampton Roads no longer meets this criteria.

- HPCON B transition does not alter the mask requirement for immunized personnel. Non-immunized personnel are still required to wear masks.
- HPCON B adjusts the allowable workplace occupancy to less than 50% occupancy.

Be careful out there Warriors!

📢 Never drive or walk into floodwaters! 📢

It is impossible to know how deep the water is just by looking at it. It only takes 6 inches of fast-moving water to knock over and carry away an adult, and 12 inches to carry away a car.
