Official business only: AF Academy to limit base access starting March 23 Published March 20, 2020 By Staff Report U.S. Air Force Academy Public Affairs U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- In response to the continued threat posed by the spread of COVID-19, U.S. Air Force Academy leadership has elected to limit installation access and services to those conducting official business only as of March 23. Base access will be limited to those who work or live on the installation, or those accessing medical services. "We have instituted numerous measures to minimize the risk of exposure due to activities here on base, but there remains significant risk to the staff and cadets from our ongoing exposure to the off-base community," said Lt Gen. Jay Silveria, the Academy's Superintendent. "While I know this is disappointing, we all have to continue to work together and make sacrifices to protect the health of our personnel and the continued mission of the U.S. Air Force Academy." In addition and starting immediately, the North gate will be open from 6-9 a.m. daily.
