In order to preserve the health and well-being of our patrons and staff, the Henderson Hall Marine Corps Exchange will remain open for essential retail purchases only, beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, April 7. Essential purchases are those items located on the first floor -- the second and third floors will be closed. The first floor will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Saturday, April 11. Beginning on April 12, it will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Vineyard will follow the same operating hours. The vineyard will also begin enforcing a policy of no more than five customers inside at one time.

The U.S. Secretary of Defense signed a policy yesterday on wearing cloth face coverings. All individuals on U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) property, installations, and facilities in situations where they cannot maintain six feet of social distance in public areas or work centers must now wear face coverings. While this does not include in a service member's or service family member's personal residence on a military installation, it does apply to all military personnel, DoD civilian employees, family members, DoD contractors and all other individuals on DoD property, installations, and facilities.

Soldiers and Marines should check with your chains of command for any guidance. For civilian employees, you should use the same considerations for mask styles as they would in choosing appropriate work attire.

You can find instructions for how to make your own cloth face covering at this link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html

The Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region and US Army Military District of Washington Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Omar Jones IV, declared a public health emergency late last night, Saturday, March 21, for Fort Belvoirr, Virginia and Fort George G. Meade, Md , Maryland. By doing so, it gives him additional authorities to protect U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) personnel and families.

He also directed that all MDW installations go to Health Protection (HPCON) Charlie. This increase in HPCON status includes #TeamJMHH .

“Ensuring the health and safety of our Soldiers, Families and civilians is one of my greatest responsibilities,” said Maj. Gen. Jones. “We will continue to work with individual installations to make certain each post has capabilities to protect our people and mitigate the spread of the virus.”

HPCON Charlie means that there is a sustained possibility of community transmission.

As we deal with #COVID19, our priority on JBM-HH remains to protect the force, preserve readiness and mitigate the risk of transmission among personnel. At JBM-HH, we will continue to monitor the situation with public health officials. Garrison and tenant actives remain focused on delivery of essential services to the community and support to mission essential personnel required for mission assurance and National response efforts.

Depending upon any increase of the threat of transmission in the area, we may take the following actions:
• Further cancellation of in-person gatherings -- all commercial activities such as commissaries, exchange services must keep a distance of six feet between customers.
• Further reduction of garrison and tenant services -- we are working to find ways to provide virtual services as much as possible.
• Further modification of commissary, AAFES and CYS hours and services -- we will continue to focus on mitigating the risk of transmission as much as possible.

People should take the following precautions:
• Plan activities for Family members, especially children, in case you are restricted to your home for prolonged periods of time.
• Prepare for the potential of limited access to supplies and services, including restricted access to military installations.

You should also continue to take the precautions for HPCON Alpha and Bravo.

The Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region and US Army Military District of Washington Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Omar Jones IV, directed that all MDW installations go to Health Protection (HPCON) Bravo beginning at 3 p.m. today, Sunday, March 15.

"I have taken these precautionary measures to protect the health of the force and maintain operational readiness," said Jones in the attached press release. "The command will continue to evaluate day-to-day operations within the National Capital Region and make decisions to ensure the safety of all of our Soldiers, family members and civilian personnel."

We will send out frequent emails to you and post on social media (addresses below) to keep you updated on the impact to services and operations on Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall as we go forward. Our priority on JBM-HH remains to protect the force, preserve readiness and mitigate the risk of transmission among personnel.

HPCON Bravo means that there is moderate increase in the possibility of community transmission. As a way of explanation, U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Public Health Emergency Management policy assigns health protection condition (HPCON) levels to disease outbreaks, such as the spread of COVID-19, based on the severity of the disease and the level of transmission occurring in the local community. Commanders review and update the HPCON based on the risk level in the local community and in cooperation with local, state, or federal guidance.

Everyone should take the following actions to protect the health and safety of their families and community.

These are the additional measures you should take now that we are at HPCON Bravo:

• Avoid unnecessary contact with others, such as shaking hands and hugging.
• Avoid unnecessary travel, especially to areas known to be experiencing active disease transmission.
• Ensure supplies of food, medication, and other items needed for babies and pets are available to last at least 14 days.
• Prepare for travel restrictions and cancellation of public gatherings, such as school, religious, and other community activities; make alternative arrangements for childcare.
• Observe local guidance on movement restrictions and access requirements for military installations.
• Seek guidance from employers and unit leaders about changes to work practices (e.g., telework) and training events.
• Comply with medical orders for self-isolation or quarantine.

These are the Alpha measures you should continue to take:

• Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• If you are sick, call your medical provider for instructions on receiving care before going to the clinic.
• Stay informed by routinely checking reliable sources of information such as the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) and your local public health agencies.

You should also continue to take everyday actions to stop the spread of germs:

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
• Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash; cough/sneeze into your elbow if tissues are unavailable.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
• Ensure all immunizations are up to date, including your seasonal flu shot.
• Stay home if you are sick, and avoid close contact with Family members and pets.
• Create an emergency preparedness kit.

If you are a service member / TRICARE beneficiary and you have health concerns or feel fever, cough, or trouble breathing, we encourage you to stay home and call the Military Health System nurse advice line 24/7 by phone, web chat, and video chat. Call 1-800-874-2273 option #1 or visit https://www.health.mil/I-Am-A/Media/Media-Center/NAL-Day-at-a-glance for more information.

Similarly, if you are NOT eligible for TRICARE and you have health concerns or feel fever, cough, or trouble breathing, we encourage you to stay home and contact your personal healthcare provider or your local County Public Health Division via phone.

We recommend avoiding contact with known sick people and to continue to wash your hands frequently, as well as exercise cough/sneeze etiquette at all times. Your awareness and support of these efforts and guidelines is our best defense.

I would like to congratulate Captain Joe Brewer and Lieutenant Mike Humphreys on graduating from the Arlington County Fire Department Leadership School. This course is put on to inspire future leaders within their department and introduce them to various topics and situations they will encounter as leaders in the department. I would also like to thank all the individuals from ACFD that invited and made it possible for our personnel to attend. This training is excellent and allows our officers here at Fort Myer and Fort McNair to be introduced into the operations and other aspects of the ACFD. Working alongside the ACFD daily is it imperative that our officers here have all the knowledge and the relationship to make both our departments work together flawlessly. Excellent job by all, I was proud to be able to attend the graduation today and see them recieve their certificates.
Happy Halloween 🎃 Thank you guys for being the best neighbors and inspiration to my lil guy. We will miss you next month when we move.
Station 46, please pass on details so that those of us that served with Firefighter Young can attend.
