By Brig. Gen. Schiess, 45th Space Wing Commander // June 28, 2020
non-essential personnel will maximize telework
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As you may have seen and read about in news media, Brevard County has seen an increase in case activity for COVID-19. Because of this, the Public Health Emergency order has been extended for Patrick AFB and Cape Canaveral AFS until August 1, 2020.
In order to keep the health and well-being of our team as our top priority, beginning on 29 June, only mission essential and service essential personnel will be authorized to enter work centers and offices on both installations.
All non-essential personnel will need to maximize telework or coordinate with their supervisors regarding weather and safety leave.
Please check our website for openings HERE, but most of our FSS activities will remain open with their current COVID restrictions.
However, to be consistent with the Florida Governor’s direction we will be closing our Marina bar and it will remain closed for the time being.
Additionally, any mission or service essential gathering of more than 50 people requires a waiver to be authorized. Any mission or service essential gathering under 50 people can be approved at the squadron commander level.
Furthermore, non-mission or service essential (“social”) gatherings within work centers are not permitted at this time. While this limitation only applies to work centers on base, it is recommended that you continue to adhere to all physical distancing, mitigation techniques, and limit your exposure while off base.
We will continue to rely on each of you to responsibly wear your face coverings in required facilities and do your best to help limit the spread of the virus.
Wearing your face covering is a key element in fighting the virus and must be worn when entering facilities as well as to and from your work area.
We also strongly recommend you wear this face-covering when off base as well.
As a reminder: if you become symptomatic or need to reach Public Health, call 321-494-8292/8193 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The full Return to Work Guidance and updated Public Health Directive can be found on our website. We thank each of you for your vigilance and help with mitigating the spread of COVID-19.
With your adherence to the guidance in the directives, we will continue to persevere through these tough times together.
