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.
