Use of Cloth Face Coverings at MCAS Cherry Point

In support of updated Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines recently released, subject to applicable labor relations obligations, fully vaccinated DoD personnel (who are at least two weeks beyond their final dose) are no longer required to wear masks indoors or outdoors at MCAS Cherry Point facilities.  Unvaccinated personnel are required to follow applicable DoD mask guidance, including continuing to wear masks indoors.

The following exceptions and qualifications apply:

  • There are no changes to current protocol at MCCS Child Development Centers or the Cherry Tree House, Before and After School Care Program.

  • There are no changes to current protocol at Naval Health Clinic Cherry Point.

Please keep in mind the Naval Health Clinic Cherry Point and Pass and ID still REQUIRE MASKS to enter their facilities.  This can impact service members being on time for appointments if they do not arrive with the proper and authorized face covering.

​Uniformed personnel are subject to vaccine verification when entering MCAS Cherry Point facilities.  All other members of the MCAS Cherry Point community are expected, on their personal honor, to comply with the elements of this policy.

MCAS Cherry Point advises all personnel to continue practicing CDC recommended COVID-19 mitigation measures and strategies whenever possible.
