DOBBINS AIR RESERVE BASE, Ga. -- Dobbins Air Reserve Base transitioned from Health Protection (HPCON) CHARLIE to HPCON BRAVO, Tuesday, June 9, 2020.

With the change to HPCON Bravo, all DoD ID cardholders, including retirees and dependents are now granted access to the installation; however, Force Support services will continue to operate on a limited basis. A phased increase of base services is planned for the coming weeks.

In HPCON BRAVO, our facilities and staff members will function within the prescribed operating limits of state and CDC guidelines to keep the risk of infection spread low. These measures include: continuing to self monitor, continuing to exercise all previous hygiene measures, maintaining six feet of physical distance, wearing face coverings when social distancing guidelines cannot be met, and avoiding exceeding gatherings of groups greater than 50.

“The decision to transition to HPCON B was based on local conditions and made in coordination with our Dobbins Public Health Emergency Officer and local health agencies,” said Col. Craig McPike, Dobbins installation commander. “Our team has worked hard to sustain mission operations and readiness since the onset of COVID-19. We are poised to continue providing national defense capability to the American people as we transition to HPCON Bravo.”

Base personnel are still required to maintain the six foot distancing rule or to wear a mask if six feet cannot be kept. Additionally base personnel are instructed to wash hands frequently, avoid common areas, avoid touching their face, and to stay at home if sick or feeling ill.
