EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. — Brig. Gen. Scott Cain, the 96th Test Wing commander,

directs Health Protection Condition Alpha effective immediately due to the decreased community

transmission of COVID-19 across local communities.

In addition, mask wear is not required in federal facilities regardless of vaccination status except

in healthcare facilities. All persons will continue to wear masks when entering any healthcare

facility on the installation.

The directed-change also approves Air Force-sponsored, in-person events to up to 250

participants, provided all health protection actions meet the local health protection conditions.
