  • 482nd Fighter Wing Public Affairs

The 482nd Fighter Wing commander, Col. David Castaneda, has updated the guidance and policies regarding the installation’s Health Protection Condition changing from Charlie to Bravo Plus as part of Homestead Air Reserve Base’s ongoing COVID-19 mitigation efforts.

Details of the new requirements for members and commanders are explained in a signed public health directive by the wing commander effective February 22, 2022.

According to the directive, the 482nd FW remains focused on providing unmatched combat airpower and agile combat support. At the same time, the wing continues to mitigate health-related risk to HARB’s personnel and mission-related disruptions due to COVID-19 infections on the installation.

Any individual experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, must avoid the installation and contact their primary care provider and supervisor.

If directed by their provider to isolate or quarantine, the individual is required to contact the 482nd Mission Support Group Bioenvironmental and Public Health Office at 786-415-7623, 7603, or 8392 and may also email them at to facilitate public health tracking.

Also of note, anyone with a valid Department of Defense identification card is now authorized access to the installation.
