In light of the recent confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Guam, Andersen AFB has implemented the following preventative measures to ensure the health and welfare of Team Andersen and the local populace. We encourage you to talk with your chain of command, and to rely on credible sources such as our Andersen Air Force Base, Guam Facebook page for up-to-date information.
Current as of Dec 03, 2020
All personnel must maintain vigilance regarding physical distancing, mask wearing, and hand hygiene. Physical distancing is defined as greater than six feet between yourself and others. Close contact is defined as less than six feet between yourself and another person for more than 15 minutes. Personnel must continue to self-monitor for COVID-19 signs and symptoms and must inform the 36 MDG and their chain of command if they suspect they are infected, or have had close contact with a person suspected to be infected.
Travel and patronage off-base will be in accordance with Government of Guam restrictions with the following caveat: clubs, bars, and other venues where close-contact is prevalent are off limits.
Limit gatherings to 2 households. Individuals may also gather in groups of 10 or less.
Mask wearing is mandatory at all gatherings indoors and outdoors. It is the most basic, yet definitive action we can take as individuals to demonstrate commitment to COVID risk mitigation.
Commanders will direct teleworking, teleconference meetings, and limit in-person duties as required to maintain mission effectiveness while mitigating risk of infection.
Group fitness is allowed outdoors in groups of 10 or less. Contact sports are prohibited.
Tarague Beach, the Palm Tree Golf Course, and main gym (by scheduled times) are open. Other MWR facilities will be considered as conditions allow for their safe reopening.
II. Unit Commanders may be more restrictive in the interest or mitigating risk to mission and personnel.
III. Military members not in compliance with these measures may be subject to UCMJ action. Civilians and dependents not in compliance may be subject to barment from Andersen Air Force Base and civilian prosecution.
IV. This supersedes Reference (a).
