100% Indoor Mask Wear Required

July 27, 2021

Effective Wednesday, July 28, 2021, all members on the Los Angeles Air Force Base installation are required to wear a mask indoors regardless of vaccination status.  This public health policy change is based on the updated “Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

HPCON Bravo
August 13, 2021

Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and positive test cases in the Los Angeles area, Los Angeles Air Force Base, Fort MacArthur, Pacific Heights and Pacific Crest (LAAFB) moved to Health Protection Condition Bravo effective 5:00 a.m. PST, August 16, 2021. LAAFB transitioned from “Flexible Telework” to “Maximize Telework” and organizations will limit occupancy rates to less than 50% of normal occupancy in workspaces. Supervisors retain the ability to require a member’s presence for on-site mission needs.  We still supply personal protective equipment and have other pandemic protocols in place (such as hand sanitizer stations and social distancing options).  For those who self-identify as high risk/vulnerable, continue to work with your supervisors to balance telework with on-site requirements unless you have an approved Reasonable Accommodation.
