Ft. Hood is hosting a virtual town hall including a question and answer session regarding the current situation at Fort Hood and the way ahead.

Major General Scott Efflandt has signed a shelter-in-place order for Ft. Hood.

Ft. Hood soldiers have been told to stay inside except when conducting mission essential functions.

Soldiers and their families can go out to take care of normal needs like grocery shopping, home and auto repair, and laundry services.

The order says soldiers cannot travel more than forty miles from Fort Hood, unless their home is outside that limit.

The order also includes a curfew in place from 2200 to 0530. It applies to all soldiers and is encouraged that their families also abide by the curfew.
