Update from the Installation Commander


For 22 May, Tinker AFB remains in HPCON Charlie due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the holiday weekend, the pharmacy drive thru will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. today, and closed on Monday, 25 May. Normal hours, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., will resume on Tuesday, 26 May.  

We have begun a gradual and measured return to full capacity by reopening more facilities and services consistent with state and local guidelines. Leadership across the installation will continuously consider regional, state, and local public health conditions and guidelines when making decisions on restoring facilities and services capacity. Protecting personnel and families across the installation while balancing with mission requirements is paramount. For more details on the return to full capacity, face mask policy and base reopenings read the article here: https://www.tinker.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/2193522/tinker-continues-return-to-full-capacity/
