Arnold AFB leadership has begun taking proactive measures to protect the health of the workforce and help slow the spread of community transmission.
To date, such measures include expanding telework opportunities and limiting mission activities to those which are most vital to our national security. They are adhering to the Department of Defense’s travel restrictions, and have canceled all upcoming community engagements and services activities, as well as limited food service to take-out only.
The base has closed Mulligan’s Grill, and the Arnold Golf Course will remain open only for scheduled tee times.
The leadership at the base continues to reinforce good personal hygiene and sanitation practices per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
As the spread of the coronavirus within Tennessee grows, they will take more aggressive action up to maximizing telework options and limiting the workforce to mission-essential personnel only. Branch-level leadership and immediate supervisors will be the primary conduit of information for the workforce.
Additional information will be kept current on the Arnold AFB public website, where a page has been created for coronavirus related topics at https://www.arnold.af.mil/coronavirus/. Updates will be posted to the AEDC/Arnold AFB Facebook page.
