Commissaries are requiring customers to wear some form of face coverings to enter the building. This policy falls in-line with the 5 April 2020 DoD guidance mandating all individuals on DoD property, installations, and facilities to wear face coverings when they cannot maintain 6 feet of social distance in public areas or work centers.



The Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and Marine Corps Exchange (MCX) face covering policy is aligned with local Command requirements. Installations requiring face coverings to enter Exchange facilities are posting signs on their doors. All Navy Exchange (NEX) associates and patrons worldwide are required to wear face coverings in all Navy Exchanges.

I think the DoD directive is that anywhere on post/base/camp you have to wear a mask if you can't maintain 6 foot separation, and at all the time in places such as the commissary, exchange, etc.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Just concurring.......

Actually, I only focused on the commissary/exchange part, and totally missed the rest of the words.
Probably, like now, I was reading it while in the middle of a meeting.......

Some commissaries place shopping limits
on fresh beef, poultry, pork effective May 1
By DeCA Corporate Communications


Note: Go the DeCA website to read this news release online.

FORT LEE, Va. – Commissaries in the continental United States, along with Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, will place shopping limits on fresh beef, poultry and pork effective May 1.
The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) is implementing these shopping limits in response to anticipated shortages in the supply chain impacted by the closures of various U.S. beef/pork/poultry processing plants, said Rear Adm. (retired) Robert J. Bianchi, DOD special assistant for commissary operations.
“There may be some shortages of fresh protein products in the coming weeks,” Bianchi said. “Enacting this policy now will help ensure that all of our customers have an opportunity to purchase these products on an equitable basis.”
The shopping limits are as follows:
• Fresh beef – two items
• Fresh pork – two items
• Fresh chicken – two items
• Fresh turkey – two items
There will be some exceptions to the two-item limits, however. In the event the limits are not in line with a store’s supply, the store can increase or decrease as needed. For example, if a store is extremely short on product they might go to a limit of one per type, or if they have a lot of supply building up, they may extend the limits on some items.
DeCA will post quantity limits at each of its affected locations, similar to how it has been posting limits for toilet paper, sanitizers, canned food items and other high-demand items.
Placing shopping limits on fresh meat will particularly keep commissaries that don’t receive daily meat deliveries from having their meat inventory wiped out because of panic buying, Bianchi said. These limits will be removed once supply chain operations return to normal.
To date, DeCA has enough quantities on hand in its pipeline to overseas commissaries to avoid any limits for these stores, Bianchi said.
“Our overseas supply chain remains strong,” he said. “In addition, we continue to prioritize quantities for our overseas shipments, so we should be able to support the demand. If we experience any unexpected major hiccups in the pipeline, we will look at expanding shopping limits to other locations.”
The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus caused a significant spike in customers shopping for essential items. On March 14, the agency enacted a directive instructing its store directors worldwide to use their discretion in placing shopping limits necessary to help maintain stock availability.
The shopping directive gave store directors more authority to quickly tailor shopping limits, as required, to keep more products available for more customers.
From the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, commissaries overseas – starting with stores in Italy, South Korea and Japan – instituted shopping limits on items such as hand sanitizers, disinfectants and toilet paper.
“We know this is a potentially stressful time for all concerned,” Bianchi said. “But together we will meet these challenges and support our service members and their families throughout the duration of this crisis wherever necessary.
“We always recommend to our customers that they purchase what they need and avoid any panic buying to ensure products are available for others in their communities.”
-DeCA-
