Update from the Installation Commander


For 23 June, Tinker AFB remains in HPCON Bravo due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest COVID-19 confirmed cases include a civilian assigned to 76 MXSS in building 3001 who has been in quarantine since 15 June and a civilian assigned to AFLCMC who has been teleworking for one month. Health officials are actively tracing all recent movements and contacts in conjunction with affected units and local health authorities. Anyone considered to have been exposed to increased risk will be contacted directly.

Results are starting to show in the quest to improve living conditions for Airmen, Sailors and families at Tinker Air Force Base. After significant effort and engagement from the top of the Air Force down to the installation, the company responsible for managing privatized homes at Tinker has made progress toward eliminating unsafe housing conditions.
