Prevent Respiratory Viruses

Every year as kids return to school and the rest of us return from vacations, respiratory viruses begin circulating again. The MDG has seen an increase in all of the common respiratory illnesses ((Strep A, Influenza, COVID 19, RSV, etc.) within the last couple of weeks. So this a good time to re-emphasize what Commanders and Individuals can do to limit the effects of these virus on our Members and on the Mission.

  • Individuals should not come to work, enter Base facilities (workspaces) or travel TDY if sick; situational telework should be used where ever possible.
  • Being up to date on both COVID and the annual Influenza vaccines will help prevent severe disease and hospitalization.
