NAS Fallon Tour

Masks will be required by state mandate for those who will be walking the floor to visit booths or friends. When walking the floor, you can lower your mask to drink, but we need to be reasonable.
Masks may be removed when dining at restaurants, including the Awards Lunch, Banquet, and during meal service for the Bug Roach Mixer.
But no one will recognize me with a mask on, and I won't recognize others. If you are worried that no one will recognize you with a mask on, everyone will be wearing name tags.
Cancellations due to Covid.
Anyone who cancels due to Covid will be fully refunded. We hope to see you there.
We get it, this is not ideal, but the alternative is to shut it all down, and we are not doing that. This is how Tailhook is living with it (vice sitting at home for the unforeseeable future). Regardless, every individual needs to make their own decision and we respect that.
