An active-duty U.S. Air Force Airman assigned to Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, is currently undergoing evaluation and treatment following a presumptive positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test.
Moody declared a public health emergency on March 12 and remains in Health Protection Condition (HPCON) level B to reflect the moderate disease threat posed by COVID-19 and the risk of exposure to personnel.
“Recommended protection measures include: practicing social distancing, strict hygiene, no handshaking, and sanitize common use items”, said a statement from USAF 23d Wing.
“Team Moody partners with the Georgia Department of Public Health to track the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Moody continues to work closely with our state, regional, and local health officials to ensure our detection and response efforts are coordinated. Moody AFB leadership will constantly monitor the situation and provide additional information as it becomes available.”
“Active Duty Service Members experiencing a fever with a cough OR shortness of breath should report to drive-through screening at the 23 Medical Group employee parking lot Monday – Friday from 8 – 9 a.m. Please enter through Davidson Road gate.”
