Col. Mike Conley and other officials at Hurlburt Field have hosted a question and answer session after an airman tested positive for the coronavirus. They announced that after returning from an overseas trip the airman self-quarantined off base in his house, and only left to get tested after showing symptoms of the virus. He has since been completely isolated since but has remained in good condition. The installation has moved to a Health Protection Condition Bravo with Conley commenting that “What that means, practically speaking, is we continue to ramp up our protective measures, we do more cleaning and we are a little more restrictive around base.” Personnel has begun shorter work shifts and are practicing social distancing while at work.
