FORT HOOD, TX — Fort Hood is requiring community members to wear face masks for certain situations on base.

Due to an abundance of caution for certain members of our Fort Hood community, the Fort Hood Senior Commander now requires cloth face coverings be worn at all times inside any AAFES establishments (main PX, shoppettes, class Six store, etc), commissaries, or any facility where 10 or more people
may gather.

Facemasks or cloth face coverings should also continue to be worn, including in the workplace, if individuals cannot maintain six feet of distance between each other in accordance with DoD and CDC guidance.
