JBSA will also begin a phased, deliberate approach to opening installation services and facilities in accordance with established city, state, and Centers for Disease Control guidelines and limits. These measures include maintaining six feet of physical distancing, wearing face coverings when appropriate, limiting the occupancy of facilities and adhering to previously establish guidelines for hygiene and self-monitoring.

Installation fitness centers will also open May 26 to uniformed military members only (Active Duty, Reserve and Guard members) with procedures and limiting numbers in place to better protect and lessen the spread. More details on the fitness centers can be found by clicking here.
