Minot AFB Eases Health-Protocol Level To "HPCON Alpha"

(Minot, ND) -- Minot Air Force Base is relaxing its health-protocol level.

According to the notification transmitted late Friday on the "Team Minot" app, HPCON Alpha is only one level up from "Normal," a condition during which no community transmission of disease is detected or suspected.  

Under this more-relaxed status, bars can re-open. Meanwhile, active-duty personnel must still practice social distancing and wear masks while off base when proper social distancing is not possible.
