COMMANDER’S MESSAGE

As we continue in this battle with an unseen foe, each facing our own set of challenges, our hearts and prayers go out to those individuals and families that have been impacted by this pandemic… and there will be many more hard hit before this is over. If there is a glimmer of hope to be had it is in the realization that your hard-fought efforts are paying off. But we cannot afford to relax our vigilance. 

Since May 1, the Presidio of Monterey has required all areas under its jurisdiction to fully adopt Monterey County's shelter-in-place guidelines, including Ord Military Community and La Mesa Village. Additionally, I have issued an order requiring the use of Face Coverings. This policy is in place to ensure that everyone is adhering to recommended social distancing practices and preventing the potential spread of the virus. PoM PD will be issuing citations to anyone violating this public health mandate. Anyone entering the installation must have a personal protective mask on entry. Anyone not in possession of a face covering will be turned away at the gate. 

The garrison have moved to Health Protection Condition ‘Bravo’. The post is fully mission capable andmany services have begun to expand and update their operation statuses.

We recognize the hardship that is imposed on each of you in attempting to simply deal with the daily challenges of life in these times.  And we appreciate your commitment to the fight and the sacrifices you continue to make each and every day. I encourage you to remain calm and continue to stay the course in what is proving to be an effective strategy.  Continue to wash your hands; maintain social distance; exercise good personal hygiene.  We will continue to provide you the latest information as we get it.

We are focused on the safety of our community with the methods and policies currently in place. Any updates will be shared on this website and our Facebook feed, so please follow them for the latest information. The current calendar of cancellation/closures are posted on the home page of our POM website, and on this page.

Let’s reach out to those we know to be struggling whether by phone contact, social media or appropriate social distancing to offer encouragement.  And at the same time, let’s recognize the efforts of those around us to contribute to a struggle which is clearly paying off.  Every time you wash your hands or enforce social distancing you are doing your part.
