Fort Meade to re­open some fa­cil­i­ties, with re­stric­tions

Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD -

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.
