When the HPCON is B, or “Bravo,” your area is experiencing an increase in community transmissions. Follow the guidelines for the previous HPCONs along with the following:

  • Practice social distancing. Avoid unnecessary contact with others, such as shaking hands and hugging.
  • Avoid unnecessary travel, especially to areas known to be experiencing active disease transmission.
  • Ensure supplies of food, medication and other items needed for babies and pets are available to last at least 14 days.
  • Prepare for travel restrictions and cancellation of public gatherings, such as school, religious and other community activities. Make alternative arrangements for childcare.
  • Observe local guidance on movement restrictions and access requirements for military installations.
  • Seek guidance from employers and unit leaders about changes to work practices (for example, telework) and training events.
  • Comply with medical orders for self-isolation or quarantine.

What is the Wing doing to protect members?

1. Following guidelines to reduce the risk of transmitting the virus, recommended by the CDC, DOD, and State of Michigan.

Per the DOD Memo released Feb. 4, 2021: any individual serving on behalf of the DOD in an official capacity, must wear a mask at all times, unless at the individual's home.

  • Masks must cover nose and mouth, fit properly (snugly around nose and chin with no large gaps around sides of face) and comply with CDC and OSHA guidance
  • Masks must be worn in any common areas, shared workspaces (including open floorplan office spaces, cubicle embankments and conference rooms) and in outdoor shared spaces
  • Masks types include non-medical disposable masks, those made with breathable fabric (ie- cotton), masks made with tightly woven fabric, masks with two or three layers and masks with inner filter pockets. Novelty and non-protective masks, masks with ventilation valves or face shields are not authorized as substitutes.

    Exceptions:
    1. When an individual is alone in an office with floor-to-ceiling walls with door closed;
    2. for brief periods when eating, drinking while maintaining distancing IAW CDC guidelines and instructions from commanders and supervisors;
    3. when mask is required to briefly be lowered for ID or security purposes;
    4. when necessary to reasonably accommodate an individual with a disability.

2. Offering the voluntary COVID-19 Vaccine series to members

3. In the event of a resurgence of the virus, procedures are in place to quickly identify and contain the outbreak.

  • Isolation, testing, contact-tracing and quarantine are important tools available to the installation commander to prevent an outbreak from seriously disrupting operations on the base and protecting the health of the workforce.
  • A team of subject matter experts, including physicians and public health personnel are on-hand to help commanders make informed decisions when responding to individuals who may be symptomatic or test positive for COVID-19.

Wearing a Cloth Face Covering (CFC)

You must wear a cloth face covering anytime you cannot maintain social distancing (6-feet between individuals) or when in locations as directed by the facility manager or commander.

TIPS & TRICKS WHEN YOU NEED A MENTAL BREAK

BREATHE AND PRACTICE RELAXATION TECHNIQUES

  • Inhale for five counts, hold for one count, then exhale for 10 counts
    • The slow exhale tricks our brains into relaxing the body
  • Tense a group of muscles as you inhale, relax them as you exhale
  • Work throughout your body in order (example- top to bottom, bottom to top, etc.)

USE GROUNDING ACTIVITIES DURING TIMES TO CALM YOURSELF DURING OF HEIGHTENED ANXIETY OR A PANIC ATTACK

Notice:

  • Five things you can see
  • Four things you can feel
  • Three things you can hear
  • Two things you can smell
  • One thing you can taste

BE PRODUCTIVE- USE ACTIVITY AS A DISTRACTION

  • Do an activity that gives you satisfaction
    • Examples include- cleaning, organize items for donation, learn a craft, read, walk, weed or rake, make a list of people to check in with and then follow through

KEEP ON A SCHEDULE TO HELP FEEL MORE IN CONTROL

  • Schedule activities that are:
    • Solitary, such as reading, crafting, baking, self-care and educational, etc.
    • Social, such as calling loved ones, checking in on social media, etc.
    • Necessary, such as personal hygiene and taking care of your home.
    • Physical, exercise, specifically walking when you can’t do much else
  • Schedule time away from your phone, social media and/or news programs
  • Eat at regular meal times

DISENGAGE WHEN NEEDED

  • Don’t stay on news or social media sites for excessive amounts of time
  • Avoid too much stimulation without adequate rest
  • Take breaks as needed and switch between activities

     

REMEMBER WHAT IS YOURS TO CONTROL

  • Remind yourself of what you are doing to help contain the spread of COVID-19 with positive affirmations such as:
    • “I am staying home, I am washing my hands and keeping an appropriate distance from others.”
    • “I am not putting myself or those around me in danger.”
    • “I am trusting the experts to do their jobs. EVERYONE wants this to be controlled and eradicated soon.”
    • "I do not have to spend time dwelling on what is not mine to control."
