Those who want to shop at military stores will now have to cover their faces, the Department of Defense said today.
Commissaries are requiring customers to wear some form of face coverings to enter the building, the DoD said in a news release.
This policy falls in-line with the 5 April 2020 DoD guidance mandating all individuals on DoD property, installations and facilities to wear face coverings when they cannot maintain 6 feet of social distance in public areas or work centers.
The Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and Marine Corps Exchange (MCX) face covering policy is aligned with local Command requirements.
Installations requiring face coverings to enter Exchange facilities are posting signs on their doors.
All Navy Exchange (NEX) associates and patrons worldwide are required to wear face coverings in all Navy Exchanges.
