What you need to know about requirements of cloth face coverings on KAFB

DOD has directed the wear of cloth face coverings, to the extent practical, for those who cannot maintain six feet of social distance in public areas or work centers (not including personal residences on military installations.)

* The KAFB directive applies to the following individuals on KAFB: 1) Military personnel; 2) DOD Civilian employees (Appropriated Fund and NAF); 3) Family members; 4) Contractors; and 5) ALL other individuals on KAFB.

These individuals will wear cloth face coverings as set forth below:

  1. Use of cloth face coverings (or other mitigating measures, based on operational requirements) is mandatory for all individuals on KAFB when six feet of social distancing is not achievable.
  2. For military members, no later than April 11, 2020, cloth face coverings will be conservative in color (e.g., black, brown, beige/sand, camouflage, OCP pattern preferred, or grey). At all times face coverings must be in good taste, non-offensive, as conservative as possible.
  3. For all others, it is recommended that face coverings be in good taste, non-offensive and as conservative as possible. Civilian employee reimbursement guidance for the mandatory use of face coverings is pending and will be released when it becomes available.
  4. Face coverings should be functional, cleaned regularly, maintained and should cover the mouth and nose.

* Cloth face covering wear is mandatory in the following areas:

  1. Personnel manning all installation gates
  2. The KAFB Dining Facility
  3. All individuals on KAFB that are engaged in food preparation, food sales, or the stocking of food (not including in home preparation.)

For those locations / situations not included above, face covering wear is optional, but highly recommended for all other times individuals are in public places.
