MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. --
On March 25, 2020, Secretary of the Air Force directed Health Protection Condition (HPCON) Charlie for all United States Air Force installations to further prevent the spread of COVID-19. In response, Minot AFB has implemented HPCON Charlie.
A vast majority of these measures were already implemented but additional measures include limiting access to the installation for official business and instructs military personnel and civilians to limit off-base travel to work, food and medical needs. There may also be additional restrictions to installation and facility access in the future.
For your safety, continue to adhere to strict hygiene regimes (no hand-shaking, frequent hand-washing, clean common-use items), and implement social distancing (limit in-person meetings, socials and mass gatherings.)
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, call the North Dakota Public Health line or Tricare Nurse Advice Line prior to seeking medical care to prevent possible transmission in the health care setting.
