Barksdale AFB leadership issued a statement yesterday evening confirming there are possible cases of COVID-19 on base, and they have declared a public health emergency.
“The COVID-19 situation in the local area remains dynamic,” Vice Commander Col. Scott Weyermuller said in a video released to base personnel and the public late Tuesday afternoon. “We have recently identified persons under investigation for COVID-19 on Barksdale Air Force Base, and we are taking active measures to limit exposure to our personnel, their families, and the local community.”
At this time, unless you are mission essential to work on base, live on base, or have medical appointments, you will not have base access.
