DeCA’s top priority is to ensure our patrons have a safe and healthy shopping experience in our commissaries, and our employees have a safe and healthy work environment.
DeCA works closely with the Department of Defense as well as installation leaders and local public health authorities to ensure appropriate protection measures are in place throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Commands and regional guidance and policies may differ throughout DeCA’s geographically separated locations. Personnel are encouraged to adhere to their local installation’s policies regarding access, service hours, Health Protection Condition (HPCON) levels, and other specific details regarding COVID-19 response.
If you are uncertain of your local policy, always check your local installation or public health authority’s website for the most current information that applies to your location.
