Marine Corps Installations West (MCIWEST)/Camp Pendleton has implemented Health Protection Condition Charlie (HPCON-C) across all of its installations to maintain the readiness and protection of base personnel and families. HPCON-C takes substantial actions to help mitigate growth in community transmission of an unusual health risk or disease, in this case the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
MCIWEST/Camp Pendleton continues to coordinate with interagency partners and local communities to support disease-containment and mitigation operations, and we continue to assess and monitor the situation to ensure mission readiness for our forces and families. We are making efforts to ensure that our force is educated on identifying COVID-19 symptoms to encourage self-reporting. This is done to bring awareness of what to do before there is a need for quarantine or isolation.
Personnel who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 such as a cough, fever and shortness of breath or have been exposed to the virus should remain home and contact their health care professional for guidance.
