For 11 June, Tinker AFB remains in HPCON Bravo due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This week, we’ve entered HPCON Bravo. What does this mean? The health risk for the local area has shifted from substantial, to moderate. Despite this shift, members must continue to use single point of entry to building access where feasible. Work areas must also maintain availability of non-medical supplies such as hand sanitizer and disinfectant in public areas. Units should also continue to utilize virtual capabilities and technology where possible to limit personal contact.
