Fort Meade to reopen some facilities, with restrictions
Fort George G. Meade will be able to start reopening some facilities as the U.S. Army Military District of Washington downgrades the health protection condition. Fort Meade has been operating under health and force protection “Charlie,” which allowed very little to be open, because of the coronavirus pandemic. Facilities such as gyms and childcare have remained closed on the post, even as they opened in surrounding Anne Arundel County. Fort Meade and other installations under the Army Military District of Washington are now at health protection Bravo moderate, meaning there is still increased community transmission. But even as the facilities open, there will be restrictions. For child care, priority will be given to active-duty families. Gyms will have strict regulations, such as time limits.
