Checking for Coronavirus-Related Closures on Your Installation

Current as of March 15, 2020


Some programs, facilities and services on your installation may close due to the global outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019. There may be little to no notice and no mention of a reopening date. The reason: the secretary of defense has asked installation commanders to take necessary precautions to keep people safe and help slow the spread.

The Department of Defense’s first priority is our people and we are closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 on programs and services for the military community. The department is committed to providing you the most reliable, trustworthy and up-to-date status on what is happening on your installation. We recommend taking advantage of the following official Department of Defense sources:

The MilitaryINSTALLATIONS website

Want to find the phone number for your installation’s child development center, housing office or military and family support center? You can find them and more on the MilitaryINSTALLATIONS website, an online information directory for military installations worldwide. The website provides contact information for many of your installation’s programs, services and more. You can search for information by installation, program or service, or by state. National Guard members can use the National Guard Bureau filter for a list of locations and additional information and resources.

Official Department of Defense and installation websites and social media platforms

For updates and information specific to your location, visit your installation’s official website. You can also follow your installation’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram platforms. Check these sources frequently to stay aware of the latest closings and openings on your installation. Consider calling ahead before visiting to check on any changes to status, hours or visit requirements.
