Arizona Wing entered phase III of COVID-19 remobilization on June 7, 2021.
In an email to unit commanders, Arizona Wing Commander Col. Rob Pinckard said, “even now, remember that COVID-19 remains lethal” and reinforced the need to continue complying with current guidelines.
The most recent (June 1, 2021) CAP guidelines concerning masking and other public health measures are as follows:
a. Fully vaccinated members will no longer be required to wear masks indoors or outdoors while at CAP activities, assuming there are no more restrictive state/local/tribal/territorial guidelines for the locality.
b. Unvaccinated members, including all cadets who have not yet been fully vaccinated, will be required to wear masks, practice social distancing, and continue all other public health measures recommended by the CDC or state/local/tribal/territorial public health entity for the locality.
c. Health services officers, safety officers, or a commander’s designee will continue regular health screenings. CAP meetings should include a briefing of the wing’s current remobilization phase and associated guidance/restrictions, as well as any applicable state/local/tribal/territorial guidelines and facility-specific rules.
Additionally, members attending in-person activities will be informed of these guidelines that apply to vaccinated members. Rather than inquiring about individuals’ vaccination status, unit leaders will emphasize that members should abide by CAP’s core values by acting with integrity and following the guidance appropriate to their status.
