Desert Lightning News Digital Edition – May 29, 2020

Desert Lightning News Nellis-Creech AFB – Digital and Print Publication Serving Nellis AFB, Creech AFB, Las Vegas NV and surrounding communities. An Publication.

Greetings, everyone, and welcome to the May 29th edition of Nellis & Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! This week, we have more breaking news on the phased reopening plan for Nellis AFB, with the announcement that the base is now moving into “Phase III” of its reopening plan. This allows all personnel to return to their on-base work assignments, with telecommuting still an option when the mission allows. Dine-in options at most base eateries will resume with proper social distancing measures. In the most recent two-week period, Nellis has successfully moved from Phase II to Phase III of its re-opening plan. Barring a spike in new COVID-19 cases, we can hope for continued progress toward a broader re-opening of the installation. Nellis Air Force Base leadership, including its medical professionals, will continue to monitor and assess the situation at the base and implement phased reopening steps as it is safe to do so.
