CAMP PENDLETON–Marine Corps Installations West (MCIWEST) has
implemented Health Protection Condition Bravo (HPCON-B) across all of its
installations to maintain the readiness and protection of base personnel and families.
HPCON-B takes increased actions to help mitigate growth in community transmission of an unusual health risk or disease, in this case the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). This condition encourages the base
population to avoid unnecessary contact with others and discourages large
Camp Pendleton is coordinating with interagency partners and local
communities to support disease-containment and mitigation operations, and we continue to assess and monitor the situation to ensure mission readiness for our forces and families. We are making efforts to ensure that our force is educated on identifying COVID-19 symptoms to encourage self-reporting. This is done to bring awareness of what to do before there is a need for quarantine or isolation.
Camp Pendleton is prepared to take measured action to preserve the health of the force and prevent the spread of COVID-19 while maintaining our operational readiness and ability to support deploying forces in support of
missions in defense off our nation.
Personnel who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 such as a cough, fever and shortness of breath or have been exposed to the virus should remain home and contact their health care professional for guidance.
