For 7 July, Tinker AFB remains in HPCON Bravo Plus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Today’s update was delayed due to tracing the multiple COVID cases over the previous 5 days.  The latest confirmed cases include 3 civilians assigned to 76 SWEG in B9001, 2 civilians assigned to 76 CMXG (B9001 and B2210), 4 members of 552 ACW (B255, B282), a 373 TRS member and spouse (B230), a 564 AMXS member (B260), and 3 members from 72 ABW (B1, B1094). 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.

Tomorrow at 3:30 p.m., the Base Community Action Team and 552 ACW Integrated Resilience Manager, supported by the African American Heritage Council, will be hosting a dialogue on diversity and inclusion at the Tinker Auditorium. All base personnel (military, civilian, contractors, families and retirees) are invited to attend. Due to social distancing during COVID-19, attendance will be limited to the first 75 people with mandatory mask wear, and the doors will open at 3 p.m. Anonymous questions for panel members can be sent here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AAHCp­­anel
