From a news release this morning from Joint Base Lewis-McChord:

Due to inclement weather and projected road conditions, Joint Base Lewis-McChord military and civilian personnel who are not designated as mission essential (Level Bravo for Air Force personnel) or critical (Level Alpha for Air Force personnel) are authorized to report for work up to 2 hours later than usual, but no later than 10 a.m., on Tuesday, November 23.

Officials urge employees who are unsure what time they should report to check with their supervisors for instructions. In addition, unit commanders will specify the report times for service members assigned to their units.

For the Madigan Healthcare System, staff members who are not mission critical are not required to report until 9 a.m. Madigan staff whose tour of duty begins at 9 a.m. or later will be required to report according to their original work schedule. Additionally, all Madigan outpatient appointments scheduled before 9 a.m. will be canceled and rescheduled; however, all surgeries will remain as
scheduled. Regular clinic services will begin at 9 a.m.
