COVID-19 message from Lt. Gen. Scobee

  • Published
  • By Lt. Gen. Richard Scobee

Heroes,

Our guidance surrounding COVID-19 is consistently evolving, which means providing precise and detailed planning is difficult. Yet we must prioritize communicating across the command and throughout the Air Force. My number one priority is to take care of Airmen and their families while allowing commanders to command. AFRC will provide Wing Commanders support in making decisions impacting our Reservists and critical missions. We should attempt to preserve mission readiness, but not at the expense or risk to our Reserve Citizen Airmen and their families’ health. The stop order issued March 13 entails some particulars. Please read these details carefully here on AFRC’s public web page.

Wing Commanders retain authority when determining military participation at their Wing (UTA, IDTs, AT, etc.). When determining whether to hold the UTA or conduct Unit training, commanders should consider local health conditions and restrictions, operational mission requirements, quality of training to be accomplished, distances members would be required to travel to participate, and availability of members given the host of other challenges.

Ultimately, I support the local commander’s authority to weigh these factors and make sound decisions to take care of our Reserve Citizen Airmen.
