KAFB mask wear policy
In response to the elevated public health threat posed by the COVID-19 Delta variant, DoD policy now requires mask wear indoors on base, regardless of vaccination status.
New DoD Mask Guidance
On July 28, 2021, the Department of Defense issued new guidance mandating mask wear. In areas of "substantial" or "high" community transmission of the COVID-19, all service members, federal employees, contractors and visitors – regardless of vaccination status – must wear masks indoors on military bases. In addition, those who are not fully vaccinated must physically distance when indoors. According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, Bernalillo County is considered a "substantial” area of community COVID-19 transmission. Therefore, the new mask and distancing policy applies to Team Kirtland.
