The 36th Wing is updating its COVID mitigation measures and policies for Andersen Air Force Base.

Effective 12:01 a.m. May 16, 2021, masks will not be required for fully COVID vaccinated personnel on AAFB.

Other changes to the Mitigation Measures Memorandum are intended to more closely align AAFB policies and procedures with Gov Guam, including quarantine policies.

A memo dated May 16, 2021, includes guidance removing the need to quarantine for fully vaccinated and specific “recovered” personnel, and allows non-vaccinated DoD-affiliated personnel to quarantine at home.

People are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer or Moderna), or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen).

All travel still needs to be coordinated through the JRT 36WG.JRT.ResponseSection@us.af.mil. Travelers are urged to refer to GovGuam Guidance for specific travel document requirements and other requirements.

Members vaccinated by a military medical facility can get their records on www.tricareonline.com.

The 36th Medical Group is continuing to vaccinate members in Tier 2, which includes all Active Duty, civilians, retirees, dependents, and eligible DoD contractors on Andersen AFB.

Those wishing to receive the vaccine can also book their appointment via www.tricareonline.com.

Please continue to exercise personal responsibility and reinforce the adherence to mitigating measures with your colleagues, friends, and family members.
