VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) — Moody Air Force Base officials announced Friday that they have lowered its health protection condition.

The move comes in response to the decreased number of positive COVID-19 cases locally and on base in the past two weeks, officials said in a release.

Moody AFB is now HPCON Bravo, which the Defense Department lists as a moderate level with "increased community transmission."

The HPCON levels in order of severity are Zero, Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, with Delta being the highest.

"While Moody AFB has lowered the health protection condition, many of its preventive measures will continue as Moody is not lowering its guard," said the release. "We will continue to comply with public health and CDC guidance and procedures."
