Officials at Travis Air Force Base have implemented an indoor mask mandate for indoor spaces at the military installation.

The mask mandate took effect earlier this month and covers all military and civilian personnel who visit, work or live at the base.

In addition to the mask mandate, indoor public events will be limited to no more than 50 people, Air Force officials said.

Military officials said the mask mandate was implemented due to high coronavirus transmissions and infections in Solano County and came following new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Masks do not need to be worn by individuals who are eating or working out, nor are they required in outdoor public spaces.

Active-duty service members and their families are encouraged to get COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots. Department of Defense ID cardholders can schedule an appointment to receive a vaccine or booster by clicking or tapping here.
