MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. – Moody Air Force Base increased its Health Protection Condition (HPCON) to Charlie today in response to the increased number of positive COVID-19 cases on base and in our local communities.
Health Protection Condition Charlie takes effect when there is a substantial threat of disease to the community and it allows the installation commander to direct additional measures to protect Airmen, their families, and the local community.
“Through continuous monitoring of this evolving situation, implementing HPCON Charlie was the best course of action to ensure the health and safety of our Airmen, their families and the local community,” said Col Daniel Walls, 23d Wing Commander. Following HPCON Charlie guidance helps mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and allows us to continue to get after the mission through risk-balanced operations. We understand some of these restrictions may cause hardships for our Airmen, families, and local community members, but they are essential to safeguard the health and well-being of our Team Moody family and our community.”
