JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. --
COVID-19 // 21 March 2020
Due to the evolving threat of COVID-19, the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst commander has implemented HPCON CHARLIE for JBMDL to protect the health and safety of its members, and to posture our teams to help mitigate the risk of contracting or spreading respiratory illnesses, effective noon March 21.
JBMDL remains “essential personnel” only. If you do not live on base or have an official and necessary purpose to enter the base, please stay home for the safety of you and others (access to the Commissary and AAFES are not restricted but should be limited due to the significant health and public safety risks).
HPCON CHARLIE is a substantial health alert in response to continued and increased public health risks in the local community and surrounding major metropolitan areas. JBMDL members should continue to practice strict hygiene measures as outlined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (to include but not limited to frequent washing and/or sanitizing hands; social distancing, limiting group sizes to the smallest practical, etc).
Continue to stay educated through checking the JBMDL app’s COVID-19 tab, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcements, routine health alerts, regular preparedness activities, and your chain of command.
