Pentagon: Stop-movement order to remain in effect, unless local conditions at bases meet criteria for travel


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The Defense Department announced its stop-movement order will remain in place indefinitely, though some bases could meet new phased-in guidelines as early as Tuesday to allow travel for military personnel and their families.

A memorandum issued by Defense Secretary Mark Esper dated May 22 states he has canceled the prior travel guidance that went into effect April 20, which was expected to end June 30. He extended the travel restrictions for all government travel of personnel and their families indefinitely unless locations meet specific criteria to allow travel to resume. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/pentagon-stop-movement-order-to-remain-in-effect-unless-local-conditions-at-bases-meet-criteria-for-travel-1.631275

      Four dry docks the Navy uses to overhaul nuclear submarines in Washington are temporarily closed after the service found they are at risk for earthquake damage, service officials told USNI News on Thursday. The dry docks, three at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility in Bremerton, Wash., and the delta pier at the Trident Refit Facility in Bangor, Wash., are still certified to overhaul nuclear submarines, but the Navy has decided to keep the dry docks empty pending further investigation.
