Health Protection Measures
The 117th Air Refueling Wing implemented Health Protection Condition Charlie here on March 27 to combat the spread of COVID-19.
These measures were directed by the Secretary of Defense to protect the forces and maintain operational readiness.
HPCON Charlie measures include the following actions:
If you develop flu-like symptoms with fever and cough or shortness of breath and may have had contact with a person who has COVID-19 or had recent travel to areas considered high-risk, contact your health care provider before seeking medical care to prevent possible transmission in the health care setting.
