Editor’s Notes:

  • DOD on April 16 transitioned from reporting current cases to reporting cumulative ones, stating that it believes the latter “more accurately reflects the effects of COVID-19 to our force” and pledging to “continue to refine” its reporting.
  • This portion of the Snapshot is updated three times weekly, since the Office of the Secretary of Defense releases new data on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Editor’s Notes:

Editor’s Note:

  • The military totals above include Active-duty and Reserve forces, not ANG.
  • This breakdown is updated once weekly, since the Air Force only issues this full slate of data on Mondays.

Number of COVID-19 cases among Air National Guard personnel, as of June 30:

Number of CasesChange Over Previous Reporting Day
148+25
(+20.3%)

Editor’s Note:

  • ANG-specific case totals aren’t included in DOD, USAF, or NGB daily COVID-19 updates. As a result, the previous total used to calculate the percent change shown above was current as of June 23.
  • This data reflects the number of active COVID-19 cases being tracked within ANG. The “Number of Cases” isn’t a cumulative total of cases since the pandemic began.

National Guard activations in support of COVID-19 response, as of July 1:

Approximate Number of Personnel
31,631 (-12.3%)

Editor’s Notes:

  • This section of Snapshot will be updated once weekly, since the National Guard Bureau told Air Force Magazine on June 22 that these updates will be issued each Wednesday.
