NSA BETHESDA IS CURRENTLY IN HPCON CHARLIE
28SEP20: OUTDOOR RECREATION: Effective Monday, Sept. 28, 2020, all fixed playground and workout equipment is open for individual use. A prohibition remains in effect for using tracks, fields and group sports facilities for group/team activities without advanced approval (e.g., soccer, softball, volleyball, team basketball, etc.).
28SEP20: PARKING ADVISORY: In an effort to remain flexible with parking enforcement on the installation for staff as long as possible, we will actively monitor parking and begin enforcing in Bldgs. 32 and 57 once we have reached capacity. Parking enforcement will continue in the following patient, resident, and required service areas — B63, B55, 85T Lot, Q Lot, B60, B68, B17, and NEX Lots. If a personal vehicle is your only option to get to work and you do not have a valid parking permit, you can visit our Gate Operations and Parking Garage Access pages for transportation options.
30JUN20: HPCON B: On Monday, June 29, NSA Bethesda shifted to HPCON Bravo, Stage 2. As a result of this change, select services and services hours around the installation will change. Please continue to follow the NSA Bethesda COVID-19 Information pages to see changes as they are posted.
23JUN20: TRANSITIONING TO HPCON B: NSA Bethesda is preparing to move to HPCON Bravo, Stage 2. The health and safety of our entire installation and guests are of the utmost priority, and our team has worked tirelessly to ensure Force Health Protection measures are in place.
When we move to HPCON Bravo, Stage 2, installation support services, such as our Fitness Center, Sports Complex and MWR functions, will re-open for limited service to help manage facility usage. Others, such as our Child Youth Program and Warrior Café, may continue to operate at their current level during the initial transition. Our goal is to strategically transition as safely as possible.
Additionally, we hope to remain flexible with parking enforcement on the installation for staff as long as possible. Parking enforcement will continue in the following patient, resident, and required service areas — B63, B55, 85T Lot, Q Lot, B60, B68, B17, and NEX Lots; we will actively monitor parking and begin enforcing once we have reached capacity. If a personal vehicle is your only option to get to work and you do not have a valid parking permit, you can visit our Gate Operations and Parking Garage Access pages for transportation options. Please plan accordingly.
As a reminder, our timeline for reopening does not coincide with local or state governments; we will remain at a slower pace. For information on specific service changes as they are posted, you can continue to track our Services Status List on this page.
Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate these uncharted waters.
