Team Kadena,

The Commander, U.S. Forces Japan has declared a Japan-wide public health emergency (PHE). Conditions throughout Japan warrant continuing effort, focus, and vigilance as infection rates continue to climb across the country. Here on Okinawa, there is community spread with new cases announced daily in the southern and central regions of the island. Currently there are 77 positive cases reported on Okinawa. This declaration ensures that installation commanders have the authorities they need to enforce local public health measures in protecting all who have access to U.S. installations. That said, this declaration of a PHE does not add additional protective measures, but requires all individuals to adhere to current procedures and restrictions in effect for the uniformed members, as well as any additional measures put in place during the period of the PHE. 

The safety and well-being of our #TeamKadena family and the local community remain our top priority. Although there are no immediate changes, we continue to elevate preventative measures to mitigate risk. This is a team effort and everyone's cooperation is needed, so please follow the guidance already in place and stay in touch with your unit command teams as issues arise. You can continue to follow us here and on Facebook for the latest updates. 

Brig Gen Joel L. Carey
Commander, 18th Wing
