COVID-19 Travel Information

Kirtland Air Force Base Access

For the latest information on KAFB access, visit the coronavirus section of their website. Sandia still requires a Health Check for unvaccinated individuals before reporting to work at any Sandia facility, whether or not it’s located on KAFB. Out-of-state travel, both personal and business, can result in a 10-day quarantine following the Health Check.

Additional Site Guidance

Health screening requirement: Unvaccinated visitors, contractors and employees are required to use the Health Check screening app to before coming on-site. For those who do not have access to the app, in-person screenings are located at badge offices and key technical area access gates throughout the lab and at remote sites. Contact your Sandia host for specific location information.

Face covering requirement: At New Mexico and other sites, fully vaccinated members of the workforce and visitors are no longer required to wear face coverings on-site, except at the badge office and the Sandia Medical clinic, but can continue to do so if they prefer. At the California site, fully vaccinated members of the workforce and visitors are required to wear face coverings indoors on-site in many situations, as mask wearing is still called for by the state if unvaccinated people are present. Members of the workforce should check local rules and regulations before traveling for work since guidance differs by state and changes regularly.
