Robins Air Force Base elevated its Health Protection Condition from Bravo+ to Charlie on Dec. 31 to continue combating the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Robins AFB transitioned to HPCON Charlie based on data, trends and recommendations from the 78th Medical Group Public Health.

When the HPCON is C, or “Charlie,” an area is experiencing sustained community transmission of the virus. Robins AFB had been in HPCON Charlie previously during the early stages of the pandemic in March.

“The health and safety of Team Robins is a top priority to continue preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus,” said Col. Brian Moore, Robins Air Force Base Installation Commander.

The base had already taken extra health protection measures to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Members should continue carrying out procedures according to the Centers for Disease Control for hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing, and wearing of face coverings. Also, supervisors should ask employees to stay at home if they are sick. Leadership has directed eligible employees to telework where feasible.
