MEMORANDUM FOR ALL VANDENBERG DORMITORY RESIDENTS (View Official Memo Here)
FROM: SLD 30/CC
SUBJECT: COVID-19 Rules for Dormitory Residents
1. To prevent the spread or transmission of COVID-19, it is important that we isolate dorm residents who have, or are believed to have the virus. Dorm residents experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19: fever, dry cough, or shortness of breath, must call the 30th Medical Group (30 MDG) immediately at 805-606-CARE (2273). After duty hours or on weekends, members must call their First Sergeant who will coordinate an escort to a medical treatment facility for testing, if necessary. The member will then contact the 30 MDG immediately on the next duty day. Dorm residents experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and requiring an escort must wear an approved mask that may be obtained from their First Sergeants and/or medical testing facility.
2. First Sergeants, or a designated unit representative, will immediately call 805-606-1844 to secure temporary quarters for dorm residents who have been tested for COVID-19 and who reside with roommates or suitemates. The tested dorm resident will be placed in isolation for precaution and/or recovery. Isolated dorm residents will monitor their health and report any progression of symptoms to the 30 MDG or dial 9-1-1 for a medical emergency. Roommates and suitemates of members who have been tested for COVID-19 will be immediately quarantined in their current living quarters. Notification of quarantine release will be made by their First Sergeants after consultation with the 30 MDG.
3. Dorm residents who are ill but who are not experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19 must immediately notify their First Sergeant. Unless otherwise directed by their commander, they must contact the 30 MDG at 805-606-CARE (2273), self-quarantine for 72 hours, reduce contact with roommates and suitemates, and clean/sanitize their common areas. These members will again call the 30 MDG after 72 hours for a reassessment of their status. Roommates and suitemates of dorm residents who are ill but who are not experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19 and who have not been tested for the virus, will not be quarantined but must reduce contact with the ill dorm resident.
4. Unit commanders are charged with providing for the general welfare of dorm residents in isolation and/or quarantine.
