SECDEF issues global travel restrictions to help stop coronavirus spread | Military Times

The Pentagon has banned all travel to and from locations with a “Warning Level 3” from the coronavirus. Troops, family members, and civilian employees are now restricted from traveling to these areas in hopes to curb the spread of the virus. The current list of countries includes Italy, South Korea, China, and most of Europe. More countries are expected to jump to a Level 3 as the number of confirmed cases continues to rise. Only those travelling for necessary humanitarian and mission essential reasons will be permitted to visit these areas. All service members and employees who develop a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing need to report their symptoms to their chain of command immediately.
