President’s Comments

Members, I have received updated USAFA Mask guidance, see below:

“14 May 2021



SUBJECT: USAFA Guidance on Use of Masks

1. As of 13 May 2021, the DoD issued updated mask wear guidance (Attachment 1) for COVID-19 fully vaccinated (two weeks beyond final vaccination) personnel at DoD facilities. Per this guidance, fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors on the USAFA installation, with the following exception:

a. IAW Centers for Disease Control guidelines, masks will continue to be required in all military medical and dental treatment facilities on USAFA regardless of vaccination status. This includes, but is not limited, to 10th Medical Group Clinic, cadet medicine, dental, and pharmacy.

2. Mission Elements, commanders and supervisors may make exceptions to this guidance to protect the workforce. USAFA remains in HPCON Bravo with an active Continuity of Operations Program (COOP) Plan.

3. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear masks but may choose to do so. Please note that this guidance does not affect social-distancing or other non-mask wearing requirements laid out in previous Public Health Directives.

4. My point of contact is Col Ramon Yambo-Arias, Public Health Emergency Officer (PHEO) who can be contacted at 719-333-6239 or”
