Next door to Walton, I thought this was noteworthy and wondering if more military bases will be doing this... Hurlburt Field will be restricted to mission essential personnel only Beginning at 12:01 a.m. on March 31, 2020, access to Hurlburt Field will be restricted to mission essential personnel only and those individuals residing on, TDY to, or conducting official business on base. This restriction is due to the ongoing conditions caused by COVID-19 in an effort to minimize spread of the virus. Mission essential personnel comprise all uniformed service members and civil servants who have been designated by the appropriate authority to conduct military functions that must be continuously performed onsite to sustain minimum operational capabilities and continuity of the mission. Some examples include: Security Food Medical Communications Logistics Flying operations Maintenance Command and control And other critical operations functions Those designated as mission essential will be provided appropriate documentation that will be required upon base entry. If not designated in a mission essential status, access to Hurlburt Field will be restricted to individuals who reside in housing on Hurlburt Field, on TDY status to Hurlburt Field, or individuals conducting official business on the installation. This order is applicable to military members of the Regular Air Force, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard, civil servants in the Department of the Air Force, dependents of military members or civil servants, and contractors on Hurlburt Field.
