MCAGCC Messages & Updates
Indicates a “limited health alert” aboard the installation
On 17 June, MCAGCC moved into HPCON A alongside California’s reopening plan, reflecting significant progress in reducing the spread of COVID-19 in the region. On 13 May, the Deputy Secretary of Defense released a memorandum titled, “Updated Mask Guidelines for Vaccinated Persons” stating that fully vaccinated personnel are no longer required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors at DoD facilities. Aboard the Combat Center, all personnel will continue to be required to wear masks on public or commercial transportation, in health care facilities, and at child care centers in accordance with CDC and Secretary of Defense guidance. At all other installation facilities, masks will be considered optional in accordance with the policy and consistent with local regulations. All installation services will be returning to normal operations with some protective measures remaining in place.
Additional information, including where to get a vaccine, and guidance regarding installation services may be found at our Combat Center COVID-19 media site at https://www.29palms.marines.mil/COVID-19/. The Combat Center will continue to provide COVID-19 information updates and make every effort to keep our Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, civilian employees, contractors, and family members informed of current risks. Thank you for everyone’s perseverance as we’ve protected our most valuable resource: Marines, Sailors and their families.
