JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas, –
Joint Base San Antonio has implemented Health Protection Condition BRAVO PLUS as of March 1.
JBSA intends to balance expanding installation access and services while continuing to emphasize public health precautions in accordance with established city, state, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and limits.
As a part of the changes, all Department of Defense ID cardholders will have access to the installation and the ability to vouch for occupants in their vehicle. Command sponsorship will no longer be required for visitor’s passes. Changes to gate openings and hours will be based on demand and observed traffic patterns. All JBSA gate hours are available at https://www.jbsa.mil/Gate-Hours/.
“We’re making progress, and we’re set to expand access to the installation and its services, but we must continue to follow the public health recommendations set forth by the CDC and local health authorities,” said Brig. Gen. Caroline Miller, 502d Air Base Wing and Joint Base San Antonio commander. “That includes wearing masks, social distancing, proper handwashing, and, as the availability increases, vaccination.”
HPCON BRAVO PLUS indicates a moderate disease threat and risk of exposure to personnel and includes some measures from HPCON CHARLIE. The public health emergency remains in effect on JBSA until April 2.
