ASAN, Guam (Oct. 13, 2020) – Joint Region Marianas (JRM) Commander Rear Adm. John Menoni directed Andersen Air Force Base (AAFB), Naval Base Guam (NBG), and Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz (MCBCB) to transition to Health Protection Condition (HPCON) B with additional protective measures, effective immediately.
COVID-19 remains a significant threat to public health and mission readiness and JRM remains in a public health emergency. Service members, civilian employees, contractors, and their dependents must continue to exercise personal responsibility and sound public health practices to successfully combat this pandemic.
DoD leadership and public health professionals will continue to examine data on the prevalence of COVID-19 to make risk-based decisions on the measures needed to protect the health of DoD-affiliated personnel, to prevent the spread of the virus, and to preserve warfighting readiness.
JRM installations shall remain postured to rapidly return to more restrictive HPCON levels and protective measures should COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations increase.
Please continue to monitor and follow AAFB, NBG, MCBCB, and JRM on command social media platforms for information and updates:
