For local civilian vaccine resources, please use the links below.
Fully vaccinated people, meaning at least two weeks since your second of the two-shot series vaccines, or two weeks since your single shot vaccine series, can resume normal daily activities if they have been exposed to a positive case and do not exhibit symptoms of COVID-19.
Safety measures must continue, including wearing face masks per the DoD mandate, and maintaining 6 feet of distance between you and others from outside your household.
If you are symptomatic after being exposed to a positive COVID-19 case, then you should stay home and get a COVID-19 test.
If you have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, at any point during their 10-day infection period, and you were in close contact (more than 15 minutes, without masks, closer than 6 feet distance) then you should quarantine at home for 10 days following your exposure.
Essential personnel may come out of quarantine on Day 7 if they obtain a negative COVID test result that day.

Our Federal mission continues, this has not changed since we started COVID-19 relief response. Our folks who've deployed, continue to do great work overseas. Members of both the 127th Air Refueling Group and 127th Security Forces Squadron are deployed, some in a holding pattern, extended due to the pandemic. Please keep them in your thoughts, as this is very tough for the members and their families.
Our readiness is defined as our capacity times will, as seen in the eyes and hearts of our adversaries. Ensuring we are maintaining readiness for our federal mission is of the utmost priority. We've continued training events as best as possible during the stay home orders and thus far we have been successful.
June Drill is a go: Our flying operations will look more normal this weekend and Commanders are scheduling member participation as they determine how to best execute and maintain readiness for their members.
The Michigan National Guard has tested more than 45,000 citizens across the state, delivered more than 20,000 test kits, helped to pack 1,500 tons of food, enough to feed between 2-5 families per day through work at food banks, and conducted the Michigan Strong Flyovers to improve morale and thank first-line workers since early April.
We continue to support our State mission.
We will only bring people back to work safely and securely. Anticipate continued mitigation across the 127th Wing as we continue moving forward. A team is working to finalize details on the "return to work" recommendation that will be published shortly.
Our HPCON is now under control of the Wing and we will continue reviewing the COVID-19 impact in our local communities to determine what's best for us and Selfridge Air National Guard Base.
Much like the Governor's plan, we will return to work in a phased approach. This information will be disseminated once it's determined. Factors include what PPE we can use, social distancing, hygiene emphasis, enforcement matters as well as encouraging and implementing self-assessments.
We have a responsibility to maintain readiness for our federal and state missions. This requires maintenance of mandatory training requirements. Commanders are looking at how to best achieve this goal based on published drill schedules and the commanders have maximum flexibility. If you have questions about whether you need to report for duty, contact your chain of command.
It’s important to remember that a, "good year," translates into 50 retirement points in the 12 month period beginning on a member's date-of-enlistment anniversary. If you want to make sure you are tracking for a good year, it’s important you get with your supervisor to determine this.
Days are available, so if you need days and/or have the time available to come out, work with your supervisors to determine how best to meet the needs of the readiness of the organization.
We continue to have an obligation to maintain fitness to fight. PT tests are postponed until 1 October 2020: we will not be required to test until the end of the 42-days-long reconditioning period. Since this date, November 12, is after November drill, DSGs will look at December drill for testing.
Don’t get complacent, take this time as an opportunity to increase your fitness.
If a member who last tested between March-Sept 2019 and earned an, "excellent" score, then they won’t have to test again until 2021. These members can request an exception to test earlier, beginning in October 2020. Exceptions will be granted subject to commander approval.
The body composition portion of the test has been canceled for all members until 2021.
Yes. While there's been a reduction in basic training slots this Summer, (approximately by half across enterprise), the ANG negotiated to keep a greater share of our slots. It will affect BMT, but hopefully these are only minor delays. We are still enlisting people and actively recruiting. Learn more about this during our Virtual Recruiting Townhall, on Facebook live, Weds. Jun. 10 at 0900.
As for 3-level tech school, the Air Force considers these critical, members will still attend.
No. Please make an appointment online -or- call the ID card office at (586) 239-4044.
That’s really up to the individual to work with their leadership to determine how to make the best decision for their families.
If on these orders during June drill, you'll likely be executing your state mission. Contact your chain of command to determine.
As a cornerstone of Michigan communities, the Air Show is our opportunity to let our neighbors come in and see what we are doing; right now we are looking at Aug 2022 for the next Open House and Air Show. We are discussing plans with community partners to try and have a small event next summer, more to follow.
If you do get sick as a result of duty we have an obligation to take care of our Airmen. If you are sick and that happens because you were exposed here, then we will help take care of that through the Line of Duty process.If you show up for duty and you're ill, we will send home.
If we think we will move to HPCON Bravo from Charlie, it will ease restrictions. In Bravo, high-risk individuals will still be offered options to telework, etc. It will be evaluated case-by-case do determine how we accomplish the mission.
Not at this time.
For the approximately 4K-5K employees of Selfridge, as more people return to work, we will implement more risk-mitigation measures on base.
The South Gate remains closed, but with more people returning to work, we will eventually reopen the South Gate. We are watching each other, talking and determining how to work together to come out of HPCON Charlie.
In-residence professional military education (PME) has been suspended for rest of fiscal year but we haven’t suspended testing for correspondence courses here at Selfridge. Encourage you to get your formal school requests in so you can get on the list to go next year, in the interim, if you are ready to do PME, enroll in the correspondence course so you can move forward.
You can use what you are comfortable with. If you don't already have your own mask, there's a limited amount to distribute here.
The DoD policy limiting travel extends through June.
