JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas --

Joint Base San Antonio officials announced the implementation of Health Protection Condition BRAVO PLUS measures beginning Jan. 6, 2022.

“The primary intent of transitioning to HPCON BRAVO PLUS is to reemphasize measures that will mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among our JBSA community,” said Brig. Gen. Caroline M. Miller, 502d Air Base Wing and Joint Base San Antonio commander. “These public health recommendations include physical distancing, properly wearing face masks, practicing good hand washing, and staying home if you feel sick.”

Under Bravo Plus, leaders should maintain less than 40 percent of normal occupancy in the workplace. In-person meetings should be limited to the fewest personnel needed to accomplish the mission. Social gatherings should be limited or moved outside, when practical.

As a reminder, masks are required for all personnel inside DOD facilities, regardless of vaccination status, with a few exceptions: when it is necessary to reasonably accommodate an individual with a disability; when the mask is required to be lowered briefly for identification or security purposes; and for brief periods of time when eating and drinking while maintaining distancing in accordance with CDC guidelines and instructions from commanders and supervisors.

JBSA officials continue to emphasize the need for compliance with public health precautions in accordance with established city, state, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and limits.
