COVID-19 Reference information

Current base guidance

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.html
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/covid-by-county.html
When 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.
