JBSA set to discontinue ‘For Official Business Only,’ changes to HPCON BRAVO PLUS today

Starting today, Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) will discontinue “For Official Business Only” access to the installation and change the Health Protection Condition to BRAVO PLUS.

JBSA intends to balance expanding installation access and services while continuing to emphasize public health precautions in accordance with established city, state, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and limits.

“We must minimize spread to avoid reversing the trends and gains we have made,” said Brig. Gen. Caroline Miller, the 502d Air Base Wing and Joint Base San Antonio commander. “We all must do our part to implement public health recommendations that include: social distancing, wearing face masks, practicing good hand washing, and taking appropriate actions if feeling sick.”

As a part of the changes, all Department of Defense ID cardholders will have access to the installation and the ability to vouch for occupants in their vehicle, and command sponsorship will no longer be required for visitor’s passes. Changes to gate openings and hours will be based on demand and observed traffic patterns. All JBSA gate hours are available here: https://www.jbsa.mil/Gate-Hours/

To stay informed on JBSA’s phases for reopening services and facilities, please monitor the JBSA webpage dedicated to COVID-19 at https://www.jbsa.mil/coronavirus/

HPCON BRAVO PLUS indicates a moderate disease threat and risk of exposure to personnel and includes some measures from HPCON CHARLIE. The public health emergency remains in effect on JBSA until Oct. 30.
