Hill Air Force Base Implements More Mitigation Efforts Against COVID-19

As of now, Hill Air Force base in Davis County will only allow mission essential employees to report for duty.

Military members who are not required to be on base must be on standby via telephone.

Col Jon Eberlan, 75th Air Base Wing Commander says the number one priority at the base is to protect  Airmen, government contractors and their families.


According to a statement people not considered mission essential cannot visit their work center unless they contact a supervisor. Contractor and contractor employees are still allowed to continue to work on the base unless notified by their supervisors.


The commissary, Shoppettes, Base Exchange, pharmacy, and Medical Group are still open.

Hill Air Force Base reported its first coronavirus case on Friday, March 20. No other cases have been reported at this time.
