ABOUT COVID-19

On Jan. 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared a public health emergency of international concern for the 2019 novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. On Jan. 31, 2020, the secretary of Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency in the United States and announced new measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The current epidemic, which originated in mainland China, has demonstrated the capacity of COVID-19 to spread globally. While supporting other government agencies’ response to the COVID-19 threat, the Department of the Air Force is responding appropriately to protect the health of the force and maintain operational readiness.
 
 
INSTALLATION (PETERSON AFB) GUIDANCE

Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) continues to spread and is an increasing force health protection threat worldwide. Peterson Air Force Base is closely monitoring and preparing for any impacts to the 21st Space Wing or 302nd Airlift Wing missions. Their multi-disciplinary COVID-19 Working Group is meeting regularly to monitor and mitigate impacts to those missions. They will continue to assess the situation closely and remain prepared for any contingency. At this time, there have been no confirmed cases of the disease on the installation.

As this is a dynamic situation, this webpage will provide timely information on the evolving outbreak, as well as actions the university is taking to mitigate the spread of the virus. Please check back regularly for recommendations and instructions for cadets, parents, visitors, faculty and staff.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU'RE SHOWING SYMPTOMS
Symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) include having a fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you believe that you are exhibiting these symptoms, call the appointment line at 719-524-2273. Do not proceed to the Medical Group or emergency room, until you have been assessed and booked in for an appointment. You will be triaged over the phone and booked a virtual visit with a 21st Medical Group provider who can address your condition appropriately. Most importantly, keep your chain of command informed and take the responsible steps of social distancing and if necessary self-quarantining as you wait to be assessed by a medical professional.
COMMUNICATIONS
All communications sent from 302nd Airlift Wing Leadership will be updated here.
 
Commander's Intent

Minimize exposure keeping our Airmen safe while continuing readiness to support real world missions.

 

Please report to your leadership if you have been exposed, show symptoms, or have tested positive for COVID-19. Please take the appropriate quarantine actions.

Work directly with your CC’s and supervisor’s for mission essential Airmen reporting to work. Each AFSC has specific requirements. We must follow DoD, CDC, and State travel and quarantine guidance.

Many full time staff are moving to a tele-commute schedule. Again, work with your supervisor for telework capabilities and instructions.

April UTA is rescheduled. SQ/CC will determine reschedule dates based on unit mission requirements.

As you can see, communication is key to safety and mission success. If you have any questions, please contact your chain of command.

As professional Airmen, it’s our responsibility to set the example and follow DoD and CDC guidance. Stay calm. Take care of your family and yourself. As a 302 AW family, we’ll get through this world crisis working together!

 

- Col. Jim DeVere, 302nd Airlift Wing commander

STORY

 

NOTE ON TELEWORK/TELECOMMUTE
If you are using a government computer to telework and/or telecommute, do not stream videos on the same system. Doing so bogs down the network across the board and creates connectivity issues.
