HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah — On Monday, May 4, Hill Air Force Base will begin reopening some of its facilities and services consistent with state and local guidelines.

Current installation mitigation measures will remain in effect, including base entry control point no touch protocols, maximization of telework, work center disinfection plans and limiting in-person meetings, socials, and mass gatherings.

Base personnel should continue to adhere to guidance on social distancing, disinfection plans and face coverings, including no hand-shaking, frequent hand washing, cleaning of common-use items, and wearing masks when social distancing cannot be achieved.

All vulnerable personnel should continue to shelter in place and people who feel sick should stay at home. When in public places such as parks, outdoor recreation areas and shopping areas, individuals should maximize physical distance from others. Social settings of more than 10 people, where appropriate distancing may not be practical, should be avoided. Non-essential travel should be minimized and personnel should continue to adhere to CDC guidelines regarding isolation following travel.

Leadership across the installation will continuously take into consideration regional, state, and local public health conditions and guidelines when making decisions on restoring facilities and services capacity. Protecting personnel and families across the installation is paramount.
