NEW Department of the Air Force-wide exceptions for mask wear
In addition to identified Department of Defense exceptions for mask wear, the DAF-wide exceptions are as follows:
(1) when necessary to reasonably accommodate a religious belief;
(2) when underlying health conditions that prohibit the wear of a face covering exist and the individual is in possession of medical documentation from a health care provider outlining such a condition and the restrictions the condition places on wear of a face covering;
(3) when outdoors and proper physical distancing can be maintained;
(4) when actively participating in physical fitness activities either indoors or outdoors and either proper physical distancing is maintained or additional measures are implemented to mitigate the threat of transmission;
(5) when an individual is alone in a vehicle or is sharing the vehicle only with members of their household;
(6) when use substantively interferes with the proper wear and use of personal protective equipment necessary for the accomplishment of one's military duties
(7) when personnel are in primary aircrew positions during critical phases of flight or emergencies; or when using flight crew oxygen equipment
(8) when clear or unrestricted visualization of verbal communication are essential to safe and. effective operations
Masks are not required when Occupational Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is being used ( e.g., PPE used by personnel on the Respiratory Protection Program, surgical masks in the healthcare setting, fire fighters wearing supplied air respirators, Airmen or Guardians wearing CBRN masks, etc.)
This guidance applies to all:

• All other individuals on DoD property, installations, and facilities
COVID-19 remains a threat to our base, our mission, and our neighbors in the City of Cheyenne and surrounding areas. While we continue to see lower numbers of COVID-19 cases in these areas, F. E. Warren AFB remains under a Public Health Emergency and Health Protection Condition Bravo (HPCON B). In order to continue reduced risk to our missions, forces, and families, it is imperative the F. E. Warren AFB population and visitors to the installation comply with the restrictions imposed by the installation commander as well as federal, state, and local mandates and recommendations.
At this time, in addition to these measures, vaccination against the COVID-19 virus is our best option for moving forward toward returning to “normal.” Our workforce is responding to the vaccination call with over 2,000 vaccines dispensed to date. The continuing acceptance of the vaccine and compliance with the restrictions have helped us to relieve some previous restrictions.
However, we MUST continue to wear masks and keep at least six feet away from those not in our household.
Updates (more details in sections below and to the right):
