In accordance with updated DoD guidance dated 1 March 22, beginning immediately, the following masking and screening testing guidance requirements based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) Community Levels will apply to all Department of Defense (DoD) installations and other facilities owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by DoD:

  • When the CDC COVID-19 Community Level is high in the county where a DoD installation or facility is located, indoor mask-wearing is required for all Service members, DoD civilian employees, onsite DoD contractor personnel (collectively, "DoD personnel"), and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. The screening testing program required by reference (a) shall be utilized in that installation or facility.
  • When the CDC COVID-19 Community Level is medium in the county where a DoD installation or facility is located, indoor mask-wearing is not required for DoD personnel or visitors. The screening testing program required by reference (a) shall be utilized in that installation or facility.
  • When the CDC COVID-19 Community Level is low in the county where a DoD installation or facility is located, indoor mask-wearing is not required for DoD personnel or visitors. The screening testing program contained in reference (a) is not required for that installation or facility.
  • Individuals may choose to wear a mask regardless of the COVID-19 Community Level.
  • The Child Development Centers and School Age Care programs no longer require mask wear, it is optional.

As of 28 April 2022, Pulaski County's CDC COVID-19 Community Level is MEDIUMmeaning that indoor mask-wearing is not required for all Service members, DoD civilian employees, onsite DoD contractor personnel (collectively, "DoD personnel"), and visitors, on Little Rock Air Force Base. 

Masks are still required within the 19th Medical Group.

COVID-19 Testing Information

The 19th Medical Group evaluates daily our capacity to conduct COVID-19 testing. Our goal is to balance testing priorities and capacity against risk to individuals, the Air Force mission, and the Public Health needs of our community and installation.

  • Patients who are symptomatic: Please call the Medical Group at (501) 987-8811 to discuss your symptoms with a provider and determine if you need to be scheduled for a COVID-19 test.
  • Patients who are asymptomatic: For those who do NOT have COVID symptoms, patients will be tested based on the following categories; pre and post deployers, requirements for PCS, approved pre-procedure testing, and Air Force directed testing. Please call the Medical Group at (501) 987-8811 to schedule an appointment, walk-ins are not accepted at this time.

need the covid-19 vaccine?

The 19th Airlift Wing is pleased to announce that the 19th Medical Group is offering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to all eligible beneficiaries and personnel that work on Little Rock Air Force Base, in accordance with CDC guidance. 

  •  On Jan. 4, the CDC updated their recommendation for when many people can receive a booster shot, shortening the interval from 6 months to 5 months for people who received the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine.  This means that people can now receive an mRNA booster shot 5 months after completing their Pfizer primary series.  The booster interval recommendation for people who received the J&J vaccine (2 months) or the Moderna vaccine (6 months), has not changed.
  • Additionally, the CDC now recommends that adolescents age 12 to 17 years old should receive a booster shot 5 months after their initial Pfizer vaccination series. At this time, only the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is authorized and recommended for adolescents aged 12-17.

You may walk-in to the 19th MDG Immunization clinic from 0800-1200 & 1300-1600 Monday-Friday.

Vaccination Schedule:

  • Pfizer Booster
    The Immunization Clinic will be administering the Pfizer booster between the hours of 8 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-4 p.m., Monday through Friday. (Please note that the Pfizer Vaccination is for Active Duty Only)
     
  • Moderna Booster
    The Immunization Clinic will be administering the Moderna booster between the hours of 2-4 p.m., every Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Pediatric Vaccines
    The Immunization Clinic will also now be administering the Pfizer pediatric doses needed to vaccinate the 5-11 year old age group between the hours of 2-4 p.m., every Tuesday and Wednesday.

The rise of the highly transmissible Omicron variant and the speed with which it transmits among individuals have significantly increased risk to our members. Vaccinating every eligible Service member improves readiness and, once Service members are fully vaccinated, has an immediate and positive impact on their families, neighbors, and the communities in which they serve.

For inquires of the COVID-19 vaccine availability at the 19th MDG, please call (501) 987-8811.
