Sent on behalf of the Installation Commander:
DLA All Hands messages regarding COVID-19 have been released lately, one on July 29th and most recently on August 3rd. While we have continued to watch our local conditions and make preparations, up until now there have been no required changes to our daily COVID-19 mitigation efforts. Unfortunately, our surrounding local area has entered the “SUBSTANTIAL” category of CDC defined COVID-19 transmission levels. We must now take action consistent with DLA and Department of Defense guidance in order to protect our valued team members. For the safety and welfare of all personnel at the Defense Distribution Center Susquehanna installation, the following risk mitigation measures are mandatory and effective August 4th, 2021.
- Wear a face mask that consistently covers the nose and mouth and meets current CDC guidance in all indoor settings on the installation. This masking mandate applies to everyone, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, entering and serving at DDC Susquehanna. This includes Federal employees, Service members, contractors, and visitors.
- In general, people do not need to wear masks when outdoors. However, consistent with CDC guidance, those who are not fully vaccinated should wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings or during outdoor activities that involve sustained close contact with other people who are not fully vaccinated.
- Federal employees, Service members, onsite contractors, and visitors who are not fully vaccinated need to continue to physically distance consistent with applicable CDC and DoD Force Health Protection guidance.
- Clean hands frequently with soap and water or with alcohol-based sanitizing solution if soap and water are not available.
If you require a mask, you may request one from your Supervisor and one will be provided. Collectively, we’ve endured very difficult conditions since the outbreak of this terrible virus. We’re thankful for the quality of our workforce, your loyalty to mission accomplishment, and the manner for which each of you have demonstrated safe practices during this pandemic. Thank you for doing your part.
