MCAS New River Elevates to HPCON Bravo Plus

17 Aug 2021 | MCIEAST COMMSTRAT Marine Corps Air Station New River

To slow the increased community transmission of COVID-19 and preserve medical capacity, MCAS New River will elevate their Health Protection Condition (HPCON) from Bravo to Bravo Plus on Wednesday, Aug. 18., at 8 a.m.

While mission critical operations will experience little impact, increased mitigation efforts will require cooperation and support from the entire installation community. Key areas of focus to reduce community transmission include:

  • Continue wearing masks in all facilities.
  • Mission essential indoor classroom instruction only.
  • If you feel sick, get tested, adhere to restriction of movement (ROM) protocols, stay isolated, and DO NOT come back to work until you receive results.
  • Limit the size of gatherings and observe basic protective measures.

Thank you for your continued adherence to base policies and flexibility as we ensure our Marines and Sailors continue to train and remain ready to operate around the globe.
