Joint Base Langley-Eustis COVID-19 UPDATES

A message from the installation commander
 

Team JBLE,

The Restriction of Movement and Base Access Oder, Social Distancing and Cloth Face Covering Order, and the Public Health Emergency Declaration that were put in place to help slow and stop the spread of COVID-19 have been amended effective 16 November 2020. These renewals and changes are due to the recent increase in the number of cases and positive test results, which is driving higher demands for additional testing and contact tracing. They will expire 31 December, 2020 unless terminated or amended earlier.  The significant changes are as follows:

Restriction of Movement and Base Access Changes

  • Limits gatherings to 25 or less people with required social distancing protocols
  • This includes all (mission and non-mission essential) gatherings held on JBLE. Examples: Holiday parties, retirements, in-home gatherings etc.
  •  Please directly contact individual agencies or services to ask about their current operating capacity or limits, as it may differ based on mission requirements.
  • While not mandatory, Commanders may choose to require personnel to complete the attached self-screening form for COVID-19 symptoms before reporting to work/duty for each shift. See attached Screening PDF and direct questions to your chain of command.

Social Distancing and Cloth Face Coverings Changes

  • Cloth face coverings in JBLE public areas are mandatory for everyone five years old and over.

These lists are not comprehensive. Please review each order in its entirety to ensure you’re in compliance with all existing COVID-19 orders and safety measures at JBLE. The orders are attached and can also be found under the Official Guidance tab of our website: https://www.jble.af.mil/Coronavirus/.

As we approach the holiday season, please think about all those you come in contact with who are vulnerable and depend on your vigilance to keep them safe.

About COVID-19

On Jan. 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared a public health emergency of international concern for the 2019 novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. On Jan. 31, 2020, the secretary of Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency in the United States and announced new measures to prevent the spread of COVID- 19. The current epidemic, which originated in mainland China, has demonstrated the capacity of COVID-19 to spread globally. While supporting other government agencies’ response to the COVID-19 threat, the Department of the Air Force is responding appropriately to protect the health of the force and maintain operational readiness.
