HPCON B

Evidence of instances of community transmission and confirmed cases aboard the installation

MCAGCC Family,

On 14 March, San Bernardino County transitioned from the most restrictive Purple Tier to the more open Red Tier as a result of declining COVID-19 cases and rising vaccinations. The move into the Red Tier means numerous local businesses can open indoor services with modifications. Aboard the Combat Center we have also seen a decline in COVID-19 cases and continue to provide vaccination opportunities to our base population. Because of this good news and the County’s move to the Red Tier, I am transitioning the Combat Center from HPCON B (Modified) which we have been under since November 2020, to HPCON B. Some key changes to our programs, with safety measures in place are:

-Military formations will no longer require a MCAGCC waiver for formations less than 100, while following all established COVID protocols.
-Non-essential gatherings up to 50 people are authorized with social distancing, preferably outdoors and following all established COVID protocols.

Additional information 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 readiness of our Fleet Marine Forces and the safety of those who live, work, and train aboard the Combat Center continue to be of my highest priority. As we transition to less restrictive Tiers, we must continue to practice social distancing, wear masks, exercise good hygiene, and limit your contact, especially within larger groups, to the greatest extent possible. These essential individual actions will help prevent new waves of the virus from occurring. Commanders will continue to utilize telework options, and alternate work schedules when appropriate.

This command 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 your continued support and perseverance.
