Offutt AFB requiring masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status

BELLEVUE, Neb. -- All employees, contractors and visitors are now required to wear masks indoors while on Offutt Air Force Base, regardless of their vaccination status.

A memo posted to Offutt's Twitter account says Sarpy County's increase in community transmission of COVID-19 triggered the order from the deputy secretary of defense to be put into effect.

Additionally, those on base who are not fully vaccinated will also need to continue to socially distance, according to the memo.
