Travel Guidance

DoD Instructions

Personnel traveling for PCS, TDY or deployments who travel through Baltimore-Washington International (BWI) or Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA-TAC) Patriot Express terminals may be selected for random, rapid COVID-19 testing. A negative test at this location does fulfill international requirements to provide documentation of a test within 48-72 hours of arrival in country.

56th Fighter Wing Leave Policy

Unit commander approval is no longer required for vaccinated military personnel taking leave or passes (to include weekend or other non-duty day regular passes) outside of the State of Arizona. Leave approval is delegated to the supervisor. The 56th Fighter Wing is aligned with DoD guidance regarding travel. A Travel Risk Assessment tool is available via the Wing SharePoint site (accessible on DoD network computers): https://usaf.dps.mil/sites/aetc-luk/lukecovid/SitePages/Home.aspx

Guidance for Civilian Personnel

Per DoD policy, commanders and supervisors may not ask about an employee’s vaccination status in most circumstances. Supervisors may ask about an employee’s vaccination status only in very limited circumstances; please contact the Civilian Personnel Office or Judge Advocate to discuss further. Employees retain the option of voluntarily providing this information.

Use of Face Coverings Guidance 

All service members, federal employees, onsite contractor employees and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are now required to wear masks indoors at Luke AFB in accordance with the Deputy Secretary of Defense “Updated Mask Guidance for all DoD Installations and Other Facilities” memo (https://media.defense.gov/2021/Jul/28/2002814816/-1/-1/1/UPDATED-MASK-GUIDANCE-FOR-THE-PENTAGON-RESERVATION.PDF).

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data tracking, Maricopa County is considered to be a “HIGH” area of community transmission. Data on levels of community transmission can be found at the CDC COVID Data Tracker website: https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/.

Various cloth items worn as face coverings—scarves, t-shirts, neck gaiters, neck warmers, balaclavas, etc.— may be acceptable as long as they are functional, cleaned and maintained.
