Starting tomorrow, Friday April 10, Fort Bragg will require that a face covering be worn by anyone entering a commissary, exchange or shoppette, or any other public area or work area facility where a minimum of six feet of social distance cannot easily be maintained
This applies to all employees and patrons, to include military personnel, dependents, civilian employees, contractors and retirees. Individuals who do not have a face covering of some type will be turned away until they are able to return with one.
Remember, a face covering does NOT need to be a mask, but can be any of a number of cloth items that cover both the nose and mouth. These can include but are not limited to bandanas, scarves, cloth, neck gaiters or “medical type” masks.
We know this is an inconvenience for many of you, but it is being implemented out of an abundance of caution. Remember, the wearing of a mask is NOT to protect you from infection, but to prevent the spread of the virus to others. These measures are meant to alleviate the risk of contamination from those without symptoms who may not know their status.
