Edward Air Force Base announced Friday it has moved to Health Protection Condition Charlie, its second-highest setting for all Defense Department installations, amid the coronavirus.

All Department of Defense installations have moved to HPCON Charlie due to the nationwide impact of COVID-19 and increasing threat to military personnel.
