"As you know, the Coronavirus is spreading around the world and across our country," said Gen. Mike Holmes, the commander of Air Combat Command. "It's a highly communicable disease that can pose serious symptoms and impacts to us if we don't take proper precautions. And we all need to do our part to limit the spread and the impact.

"Our country is counting on us," he continued. "When people are concerned or frantic, we'll be steadfast, calm and deliberate. Let's work together to protect each other, our communities and our nation while we preserve the combat power that our country depends on."
