JULY 28, 2021:  In accordance with Deputy Secretary of Defense Guidance released today, 28 July 2021, all Service members, Federal employees, onsite contractor employees, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask in an indoor setting while on Scott AFB.  This policy applies for as long as the local community transmission rates range in the high or substantial categories as depicted on the CDC COVID Data Tracker website found at : https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/.  I ask all commanders and facility managers to post signs to relay this new information. 

Individuals may remove their masks for eating, drinking, and for the purposes of identification.  Additionally, on base residences, to include Airmen dorms and individual rooms at the Scott Inn, are exempt from this requirement.All installation functions and services will continue operations in accordance with this guidance.
