Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam has adjusted its Mask Wearing Policy. Effective immediately, mask wear for fully immunized personnel (14 days beyond final dose) is no longer required when indoors or outdoors onboard the installation, IAW higher headquarters policy. Personnel who are not fully immunized shall continue to follow applicable DOD mask guidance, including the requirement to wear masks indoors.

At this time, masks shall be worn in Child Development Centers (CDCs) and School Age Care (SAC) Facilities (due to the inability to immunize those children in that age group) and in high touch areas, such as beauty/barber shops, eye-care centers and tailoring.

Note that individual tenants and base services may be more restrictive in mask wear policy, especially in high risk locations. Please continue to follow city and state guidance when off installation.
