If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.
Quarantine: Those identified as meeting close contact criteria with a confirmed COVID-19 case or with a pending COVID-19 test(s). Remain home for duration of quarantine until officially cleared.
Isolation: Individuals who are identified as probable or confirmed COVID-19 cases. Remain home, implement contactless meal and hygiene routines, separate from any shared household members and disinfect surfaces after use by the isolated member where sharing cannot be avoided (single bathroom homes, etc.) for the duration of isolation until officially cleared.
Duration, permitted activity, and testing/re-testing requirement will vary pending symptom and vaccination status. Public Health will assess and instruct you on your status initially, and follow-up to “clear” you when appropriate. Protocol may be subject to change based on the latest CDC guidance.
The vaccination is available every day by appointment from 0730-1600 Monday through Friday, and 0930-1600 on Wednesdays. Appointments can be booked through the appointment line at 456-6555.

Face covering requirements when inside BAFB facilities are in accordance with the CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels guidance, and will use “Louisiana” and “Bossier Parish” to determine the community risk level via the following websites:https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/community-levels.htmlhttps://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/covid-by-county.htmlWhen Bossier Parish’s community level is listed as Low, on-base mask wear is optional, with the following exceptions:
Inside all 2 MDG facilities, patients and visitors two years and older will wear masks. 2 MDG personnel working in clinical settings and accessing common areas will wear masks.
DoD personnel with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 will wear masks and leave the workplace until their health status is determined.
When Bossier Parish’s community level is listed as High, the requirement for on-base mask wear remains. 2 BW leadership will actively communicate changes to COVID-19 community levels and associated mask wear requirements.
