Public Notice: Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to Limit Personal Contact at Gates
Effective Friday, March 13, Security Forces at Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station entry control points will scan, but limit touching of all identification cards.
Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to limit potential spread of disease, such as COVID-19, Brig Gen Schiess, 45th Space Wing Commander, has instructed gate sentries to limit personal contact with those entering our installations.
Personnel accessing either installation should be prepared to show the front and back of their identification card to the sentries upon arrival to the gate. Identification cards will be scanned while the individual retains possession of their ID card. Enhanced security measures may still require the handling of some credentials. Increased traffic delays are expected, due to this precaution. Please plan accordingly and be patient as you enter the installation.
Public Notice: 45th Space Wing implements Health Protection Condition Charlie
As of 3/25 at 1630, in coordination with all Department of the Air Force installations, the 45th Space Wing has increased our Health Protection Condition (HPCON) from Bravo to Charlie.
This change is effective for all installations across the Department of the Air Force and is in response to the growing potential threat of COVID-19 spreading to local areas or affecting personnel at all installations.
In order to be proactive in our efforts to prioritize the health and well-being of our force, leadership teams at every level have already taken necessary steps in both HPCON Charlie and Delta to prepare for these changes.
We continue to ask each of you and your family members adhere to strict hygiene practices (no hand-shaking, wash your hands frequently, clean common-use items and areas, and limit physical interactions while practicing social distancing). These measures are crucial in protecting your health and limiting your exposure risks moving forward.
In HPCON Charlie, it is highly recommended all 45th Space Wing personnel restrict travel to only 1) travel to/from residence and work center to include child care facilities, (2) to obtain groceries or pickup takeout food, and (3) to attend medical appointments. Members can still exercise outside, but need to still practice physical distancing.
In HPCON Charlie, the 45th Space Wing will continue mission-essential and service-essential functions. Employees on administrative leave and/or telework status must be available to return to work at any time or be approved by their supervisor to be on personal leave (i.e., annual leave). Members should only be coming to their workplace if they are mission or service essential and cannot telework. If you do not meet those areas then contact your leadership to determine what status you will be in and for further guidance.
As a reminder, if you are symptomatic, call the Base Appointment Line at (321) 494-8241. Do NOT walk in. If you believe that you have been exposed to COVID-19, speak to your chain of command and self-quarantine.
Effective 3/26, the Child Development Care and Youth Centers will remain open for currently enrolled children but will now be limited to on-duty mission-essential members.
For more information on COVID-19 and the current state of our base facilities visit:
https://www.patrick.af.mil/Coronavirus/Installation-Information/ and follow our social media pages at @45SpaceWing. These official channels of communication, along with your chain of command, are key in understanding the steps we’re taking and how they may affect you and your family. While it may be tempting to look to other unofficial sources on social media pages for speculative information, it’s important to remain vigilant in passing along the right information verified from official channels. Please send all queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, even though we’re practicing social distancing and teleworking, don’t forget to reach out to friends and loved ones to see how they’re doing, set up a video chat, or play video games online. These precautions are aimed at keeping us all physically healthy, but this can be a stressful time and we all need to make sure the emotional, spiritual, or mental health of our community doesn’t suffer.
Thank you for taking this seriously and for all that you have done. Take care of yourselves, your families, and your teammates.
