Minot AFB changes to HPCON Charlie
MINOT AIR FORCE BASE – Minot Air Force Base and other U.S. Air Force installations have implemented Health Protection Condition (HPCON) Charlie, a directive of the Secretary of the Air Force to further prevent the spread of COVID-19.
A vast majority of the measures were already implemented but additional measures include limiting access to Minot Air Force Base for official business and instructing military personnel and civilians to limit off-base travel to work, food and medical needs. There may also be additional restrictions to installation and facility access in the future.
Individuals should continue to adhere to strict hygiene regimes (no hand-shaking, frequent hand washing, clean common-use items), and implement social distancing (limit in-person meetings, socials and mass gatherings).
Anyone developing flu-like symptoms with fever and cough or shortness of breath and who may have had contact with a person who has COVID-19 or had recent travel to areas considered high-risk, should call the North Dakota Public Health line or Nurse Advice Line prior to seeking medical care to prevent possible transmission in the health care setting.
