Balance and Cpl. Pina conduct preventive mainte- nance checks and services on their patrol vehicle before starting shift. Military policemen are mission essential to installation operations as their checks at the post’s gates are the first line of defense and provide heightened security. For HPCON Charlie guidelines see page 3 of today’s Guardian. Above left: A Bayne-Jones Army Community Hospital Soldier serves a patient at the drive-thru pharmacy. For patients who only have to pick up medications, this reduces personnel traffic in and out of the hospital mitigating the risk for potential COVID-19 transmittance.

In addition to MPs, medical personnel are also vital mission es- sential members of the Fort Polk team. CHUCK CANNON / GUARDIAN SPC. RUSSEL J. Di MAL / JRTC HQS SPC. RUSSEL J. Di MAL / JRTC HQS
