From the 27th Special Operations Wing Public Affairs:

Cannon Air Force Base, NM – An Airman tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19) at the Cannon Air Force Base, March 27, 2020.  

The member, while traveling out of the area on terminal leave in the East Coast earlier this month, came in contact with an individual who had tested positive for COVID-19. 

Upon return, the member contacted our 24/7 Public Health Hotline and was immediately placed in self-isolation at their residence in the local area.  The member will remain in self-isolation in accordance with CDC protocols.  Once the member is no longer symptomatic, they will be re-evaluated for a follow-up test.   

Cannon AFB continues to work closely with our federal, state, and local health officials to ensure our detection and response efforts are coordinated during this whole-of-government effort.  Our leadership and our Public Health Team are constantly and vigilantly monitoring the situation.  Protecting our people and our community, while maintaining mission readiness, is our top priority and we and will continue to provide information as it becomes available.
