BIDDLE AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Pa. --
Per the CDC’s COVID Data Tracker, Montgomery, Bucks, and Philadelphia counties have moved into the “Substantial Transmission” level of community transmission. Due to this increase in local transmission, and in accordance with the latest guidance from the Deputy Secretary of Defense, effective immediately, all Biddle Air National Guard Base personnel (Service members, Federal employees, onsite contractor employees, and visitors), regardless of vaccinations status, will wear masks. IAW DoD Guidance, individuals must wear masks consistently while indoors at Biddle ANG Base except: (1) when an individual is alone in an office with floor-to-ceiling walls and closed doors; (2) for brief periods of time when eating and drinking while maintaining at least six-feet distance and in accordance with instructions from commanders and supervisors; (3) when the mask is required to be lowered briefly for identification or security purposes; and (4) when necessary to reasonably accommodate an individual with a disability.
