FORT BLISS, Texas (KTSM) — Fort Bliss says it could tighten up its restrictions after COVID-19 cases were confirmed just a few days ago.
Tuesday, officials held a virtual town hall to address possibly raising HPCON restrictions to level Charlie, which means a substantial risk. The change would trigger adjustments like working remotely, cancellation of gatherings and restricted travel.
As KTSM previously reported, the Department of Defense already banned all domestic travel for military personnel until May 11th.
