HPCON Bravo (as of noon August 26, 2022)
Base Mask Posture: Masks are NOT Required (current as of noon August 26 )

Coronavirus Information

Effective August 26, 2022, noon EDT, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has transitioned into Health Protection Condition Level Bravo.

After reviewing the data trends for new cases, new COVID hospital admissions, and percent of staffed beds in use by patients with COVID-19 for the greater Dayton area and after consulting with our Mighty Medics in the 88th MDG, the decision was made to move the installation into HPCON Bravo. 

Following an extensive analysis of local conditions to include our health facilities it was determined there is no increased risk to individuals or the mission at this time.

Mask wear will be optional on base with the exception of the medical group facilities.

    • COVID-19 vaccines currently available to all U.S. citizens and residents are Johnson & Johnson/Janssen, Pfizer-BioNTech-COMIRNATY® and Moderna.
    • These vaccines are safe and effective against COVID-19 and its variants. The CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all people 5 years and older.
  • DOD COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

    The DOD requires COVID-19 vaccines for all members of the Armed Forces under DOD authority on active duty or in the Ready Reserve, including the National Guard who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes pregnant service members. Each service will decide their own deadline for vaccination.

    • If you’re a service member and you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine from a non-DOD provider, make sure to update your medical records
    • If you haven’t received your COVID vaccine yet, schedule your vaccine as soon as you can
    • Find a DOD COVID Vaccine Location near you

    The DOD already requires all ADSMs to get other types of vaccines before they join the military. There are very narrow religious and medical exemptions available on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions, contact your unit commander

  • COVID-19 Vaccine for Children

    Getting your children vaccinated can help protect them against COVID-19, as well as reduce disruptions to in-person learning and activities by helping curb community transmission. Vaccination also reduces risk of:

    • Severe disease
    • Hospitalizations
    • Long-term COVID-19 complications

    The CDC recommends that children ages 12 to 15 receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and children ages 5 to 11 receive a pediatric Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric COVID-19 vaccine is administered as a 2-dose series, 21-days apart. Each dose contains 10mg of the vaccine, which is one third the adult dose.
    If you are unsure whether the vaccine it right for your children, we recommend you discuss your child’s medical conditions, including prior reaction to vaccines, with a medical provider.
