HPCON-Bravo-Yellow.jpg

WHAT IS HPCON?

The Department of Defense Instruction (DoDI) 6200.03 “Public Health Emergency Management Within the DoD,”and supplements, provides military commanders with policy applicable to theCOVID-19 outbreak. Commanders review and update the health protection condition(HPCON) based on the risk level in the local community and in cooperation with local, state, or host nation guidance.

Commanders and public health personnel use HPCON levels to guide specific actions you can take in response to a health threat. While it’s always important to prevent the spread of germs, there are additional steps you can take if COVID-19 transmission becomes more widespread in your community. This site lists potential actions that may be indicated as a result of COVID-19.Regardless of the current HPCON level, always follow the guidance from your installation and local public health agencies.

Take the following actions to protect the health and safety of your Family and your community.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash; cough/sneeze into your elbow if tissues are unavailable.
