HomeFEW COVID-19 Info

This is an evolving situation and the 90th Missile Wing will provide updated information as it becomes available.

The safety of Team Warren is our highest priority.

UPDATED INFORMATION

Current as of December 3, 2020

SPECIAL NOTE: 

COVID-19 remains a threat to our base, our mission, and our neighbors in the City of Cheyenne and surrounding areas. We are continuing to combat the threat of this pandemic to our mission of providing 24/7 combat capability. With the recent increase in cases nationally and locally, we wanted to remind people of what the different terms are associated with direction that might be provided by commanders and supervisors to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Commander Directed Restriction of Movement (ROM)

  • Commanders may require members to restrict movement as a result of out of the area travel, potential exposure to COVID-19, or other operational reasons. ROM typically means that a member is ordered to limit travel away from their home to only essential travel such as going to the grocery store, pick up take out, or seek medical attention. However, the duration and scope of the directed ROM may vary based on the reason for the ROM and the threat the commander is trying to mitigate. Only active duty members may be ordered to ROM, but family members who have travelled out of the area may be encouraged to ROM. Violating an order to ROM is punishable under Art. 92, UCMJ.

 Medically Directed ROM

  • Quarantine: A military member, dependent, or civilian employee may be ordered by the Public Health Emergency Officer to quarantine if they have been in contact with known COVID-19 positive person. The quarantined individual may or may not have symptoms, and they may or may not have been tested for COVID-19. Quarantine orders require the individual quarantined to not leave the quarantine location (home) unless immediate safety concerns arise and take all necessary precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the disease.  Violation of a quarantine order may be punishable under Articles 84 and 92 of the UCMJ and 42 USC §271d.
    • Use your supervisor, first sergeant and unit commander when you need something outside the quarantine location.  For instance, if you are COVID-19 positive and you are in isolation but your child is at school, get hold of your leadership as soon as possible so they can help arrange for someone to pick up your child and help prevent the spread.  This isn’t happening, and we are seeing impacts on the school system.

    • Understand that we are actively tracking quarantine and isolation orders at all base entry points.  To learn more, hop on the AF Connect App and click on the COVID-19 updates.

    • If you are quarantined or isolated, please think about your family. If your spouse is an FCC provider, discontinue childcare ASAP and contact Public Health with this information. 

  • Isolation: A military member, dependent, or civilian employee may be ordered by the Public Health Emergency Officer to isolate if they have tested positive for COVID-19. The isolated individual may or may not have symptoms, and they may or may not have been tested for COVID-19. Isolation orders require the individual isolated to not leave the location (home) unless immediate safety concerns arise and take all necessary precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the disease.  Violation of a isolation order may be punishable under Articles 84 and 92 of the UCMJ and 42 USC §271d.

 We are in Health Protection Condition Bravo with additional measures (HPCON B+) and have also been directed to socially or physically distance ourselves from other people when we are in public, and to wear a mask anytime we are in public places, to include wearing a mask while in your workplace, where we may come in contact with people outside of our household. We own this! Whether we get better or worse is a daily choice for everyone. It is simple, follow the guidelines for HPCON B+ and the recommended safety measures. Continue to adhere to social distancing and the use of face coverings when social distancing is not possible!

 

Respiratory Operations Medical Clinic (ROMC)

Respiratory Operations Medical Clinic (ROMC) is designed to screen active-duty members who are feeling ill with COVID-like symptoms. The 90 Medical Group asks active-duty members to call ROMC (773-5132), if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. Please, if you are active duty, DO NOT go to an off base provider or testing facility unless it is an emergency. The only active-duty members who should be tested off base are those requiring emergent care at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center or another hospital. All other members, who experience symptoms outside of normal business hours, are asked to immediately self isolate and call ROMC as soon as possible on the next duty day.
