Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall is at Health Protection Charlie, which means there is a sustained possibility of community transmission of COVID-19.  Our priority on JBM-HH remains to protect the force, preserve readiness and mitigate the risk of transmission among personnel. Garrison and tenant actives remain focused on delivery of essential services to the community and support to mission essential personnel required for mission assurance and National response efforts.

Effective today, April 6, the DoD Shuttle, Route 9 - Pentagon - Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall is suspended. If this is impacting you, please let us know. We are assessing how many people need this service, so it is important that you let us know. Please call the motor pool at 703-696-7009 or 703-696-7136.

MCX: In order to preserve the health and well-being of our patrons and staff, the Henderson Hall Marine Corps Exchange will remain open for essential retail purchases only, beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, April 7. Essential purchases are those items located on the first floor -- the second and third floors will be closed. The first floor will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Saturday, April 11. Beginning on April 12, it will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Vineyard will follow the same operating hours. The vineyard will also begin enforcing a policy of no more than five customers inside at one time.

Commissary: New hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays, 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Also, guidance has come out from DeCA HQ asking patrons not to bring any reuse bags from home. They may purchase to utilize at time of purchase, but not bring them in again. See attached. And finally, they are asking customers to minimize the use of cash to reduce this high touch point item.

The Secretary of Defense signed a policy yesterday on wearing cloth face coverings. All individuals on DoD property, installations, and facilities in situations where they cannot maintain six feet of social distance in public areas or work centers must now wear face coverings. While this does not include in a service member's or service family member's personal residence on a military installation, it does apply to all military personnel, DoD civilian employees, family members, DoD contractors and all other individuals on DoD property, installations, and facilities.

Soldiers and Marines should check with your chains of command for any guidance. For civilian employees, you should use the same considerations for mask styles as they would in choosing appropriate work attire.

As a reminder, one thing public health officials and leaders emphasis is for people to practice social distancing and hygiene.  Wash your hands completely frequently and keep a distance of at least six feet between you and others in commercial places such as the commissary, exchange services and other public places. As we deal with COVID-19, our priority on Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall remains to protect the force, preserve readiness and mitigate the risk of transmission among personnel.

The Joint Task Force-National Capital Region and US Army Military District of Washington commanding general, Maj. Gen. Omar Jones IV, declared a public health emergency March 21, for Fort Belvoir, Virginia and Fort George G. Meade, Maryland. By doing so, it gives him additional authorities to protect Department of Defense personnel and families.

He also directed that all MDW installations, to include Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall and Fort McNair, elevate to Health Protection Condition Charlie Minus and is holding the implementation of additional specific HPCON C measures pending further public health assessments.

“Ensuring the health and safety of our Soldiers, Families and civilians is one of my greatest responsibilities,” said Maj. Gen. Jones. “We will continue to work with individual installations to make certain each post has capabilities to protect our people and mitigate the spread of the virus.”

HPCON Charlie means that there is a sustained possibility of community transmission.

As we deal with COVID-19, our priority on JBM-HH remains to protect the force, preserve readiness and mitigate the risk of transmission among personnel. At JBM-HH, we will continue to monitor the situation with public health officials. Garrison and tenant actives remain focused on delivery of essential services to the community and support to mission essential personnel required for mission assurance and National response efforts.

Right now, what that means for the JBM-HH community is, depending upon any increase of the threat of transmission in the area, we may take the following actions:

• Further cancellation of in-person gatherings -- all commercial activities such as commissaries, exchange services must keep a distance of six feet between customers.

• Further reduction of garrison and tenant services -- we are working to find ways to provide virtual services as much as possible.

• Further modification of commissary, AAFES and CYS hours and services -- we will continue to focus on mitigating the risk of transmission as much as possible.

In addition to HPCON Alpha and Bravo measures, you should also take the following precautions:

• Plan activities for Family members, especially children, in case you are restricted to your home for prolonged periods of time.

• Prepare for the potential of limited access to supplies and services, including restricted access to military installations.

You should also continue to take the precautions listed below for HPCON Alpha and Bravo.

If you are a service member / TRICARE beneficiary and you have health concerns or feel fever, cough, or trouble breathing, we encourage you to stay home and call the Military Health System nurse advice line 24/7 by phone, web chat, and video chat. Call 1-800-874-2273 option #1 or visit https://www.health.mil/…/M…/Media-Center/NAL-Day-at-a-glance for more information.

Similarly, if you are NOT eligible for TRICARE and you have health concerns or feel fever, cough, or trouble breathing, we encourage you to stay home and contact your personal healthcare provider or your local County Public Health Division via phone.

There is an Army COVID-19 Hotline. You can call 1-800-984-8523.

Major General Jones previously directed that all MDW installations go to HPCON Bravo March 15.

"I have taken these precautionary measures to protect the health of the force and maintain operational readiness," said Maj. Gen. Jones in a March 15 press release. "The command will continue to evaluate day-to-day operations within the National Capital Region and make decisions to ensure the safety of all of our Soldiers, family members and civilian personnel."

HPCON Bravo means that there is moderate increase in the possibility of community transmission. As a way of explanation, U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Public Health Emergency Management policy assigns health protection condition (HPCON) levels to disease outbreaks, such as the spread of COVID-19, based on the severity of the disease and the level of transmission occurring in the local community. Commanders review and update the HPCON based on the risk level in the local community and in cooperation with local, state, or federal guidance.

These are the additional measures for HPCON Bravo:

• Avoid unnecessary contact with others, such as shaking hands and hugging.

• Avoid unnecessary travel, especially to areas known to be experiencing active disease transmission.

• Ensure supplies of food, medication, and other items needed for babies and pets are available to last at least 14 days.

• Prepare for travel restrictions and cancellation of public gatherings, such as school, religious, and other community activities; make alternative arrangements for childcare.

• Observe local guidance on movement restrictions and access requirements for military installations.

• Seek guidance from employers and unit leaders about changes to work practices (e.g., telework) and training events.

• Comply with medical orders for self-isolation or quarantine.

Colonel Kimberly Peeples, JBM-HH commander, placed the joint base on HPCON Alpha on March 11.

These are the HPCON Alpha measures:

• Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

• If you are sick, call your medical provider for instructions on receiving care before going to the clinic.

• Stay informed by routinely checking reliable sources of information such as the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) and your local public health agencies.

You should also continue to take everyday actions to stop the spread of germs:

• 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.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

• Ensure all immunizations are up to date, including your seasonal flu shot.

• Stay home if you are sick, and avoid close contact with Family members and pets.

• Create an emergency preparedness kit.

We will continue to update you as the situation develops.

Previously noted closures, cancellations and notifications regarding COVID-19 and JBM-HH:

Garrison

1) Closure -- The Henry Gate Pedestrian Portal on the Fort Myer portion of the joint base is closed.

2) COVID-19 Reporting -- The following are instructions for reporting procedures for employees and Soldiers on Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall:  It is important to immediately notify the JBM-HH Emergency Operations Center and Rader Clinic to report any quarantined and isolated cases across the installation. This will allow us to better track and prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus. The report needs to be sent up daily (time to be determined). Please send to the following addresses:  usarmy.jbmhh.asa.mbx.dptms-ioc@mail.mil, niki.l.zimmerman.civ@mail.mil. Here are guidelines:

•If an employee has a history of exposure from a COVID19 positive individual or travel to a high risk area in the past 14 days AND has no symptoms:

Employee: Call the local health department (this will depend on where you live and not where you work) or your primary care provider and follow the provider instructions. If you are quarantined, stay home and do not leave the house. If you do not live alone, separate yourself from your family (different room, linen, plates) Call your supervisor to let him or her know that you will not be able to come to your workplace for 14 days.  Monitor yourself for fever (over 100.4) cough and shortness of breath.  If you develop symptoms call your primary care provider and follow his/her instructions.  If your symptoms are severe, call 911 and let the operator know about your exposure.  If someone drives you to the emergency room, call the facility first and tell them about your exposure. Before returning to work, obtain documentation from your primary care provider stating why you were out of work and that you can safely return to the workplace.

Supervisor: Do not allow the employee to return to the workplace for 14 days after the last time the employee was exposed. A negative test for COVID19 during this time is not sufficient to return an employee to work.  Prior to returning to the workplace, have the employee come to the occupational health clinic with documentation from their primary care provider stating why the employee was out of work and that he/she is healthy enough to return to his/her workplace.

•If an employee has a history of exposure from a COVID19 positive individual or travel to a high risk area in the past 14 days AND has symptoms:

Employee:  Call your primary care provider and follow his/her instructions.  If your symptoms are severe, call 911 and let the operator know about your exposure.  If someone drives you to the emergency room, call the facility first and tell them about your exposure. If you are diagnosed by a medical profession with COVID19 (either with a positive test or because of your symptoms and history), you will be isolated.  If you are isolated , stay home and do not leave the house. If you do not live alone, separate yourself from your family. As soon as you are able, let your supervisor know that you will be out of work and why. Do not return to work until cleared to do so by your primary care provider.  You will need to provide documentation from your treating provider stating the you are safe and healthy enough to return to the workplace.  If you are hospitalized, either the hospital staff or your treating provider will determine when you can safely return to work.

Supervisor: Do not allow the employee to return to the workplace until the employee has been cleared to do so by his/her treating provider. Prior to returning to the workplace, have the employee come to the occupational health clinic with documentation from their primary care provider stating why the employee was out of work and that he/she is healthy enough to return to his/her workplace.

Let's help them accomplish the mission to protect, support, and defend the JBM-HH community. If you or a loved one is feeling ill, do not visit the JBM-HH firehouses for a medical evaluation. Instead, call your doctor or medical professional right away. Your efforts can help keep our firefighters out of quarantine, working on the front line, keeping our communities safe.

We will transition from the current "to-go" concept to "grab-and-go" concept, meaning all food items will be labeled and prepackaged, with little to no interactions between patrons and culinary specialists.

This is a very unique version of the ceremony -- probably never been done before like this and is an example of adapting to social distancing guidance.
