Off-Base Travel (OBT)

Off-base travel for AUAB is currently closed. During a closed state, the threat posed by the pandemic to both AUAB and our Qatari hosts is significant, necessitating extreme constraints. Travel on- or off-base is generally prohibited and, when necessary for mission critical reasons, requires an exception to policy granted by the 379 AEW/CC. Authorized officials in the chain of command submit mission critical exception requests to the 379 AEW/DS who will route for approval/disapproval. 379 AEW/DS will route approved exceptions to the 379 ESFS/CC for action at the entry control point and tracking purposes.

What To Do If You Are Feeling Sick

According to the CDC, anyone with symptoms of a respiratory illness shouldn't assume novel coronavirus, there are many respiratory illnesses or non-viral reasons for some symptoms. If you are not feeling well, talk to your leadership about rest and hydration in your room for 72 hours. If you need medical advice of any kind, contact the 24/7 Medical Help Line by calling 455-1000 or 974-5080-2912. This help line is designed to limit the amount of patients physically visiting the clinic, and ultimately limit any spread of the virus. If you are seriously ill or have shortness of breath, go directly to the EMDG.
