Memo from the Secretary of Defense: “The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVTD-19) continues to present significant risk to our forces as the DoD considers domestic and overseas personnel travel.

My priorities remain protecting our Service members, DoD civilians, and families; safeguarding our national security capabilities; and supporting the whole-of-nation response. Effective immediately, this memorandum … reissues travel restriction guidance for DoD Components that will remain in effect until June 30, 2020.”  https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-789163
