Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson told us today that if there’s a coronavirus case, they will shut down and we’ll have to leave. (They stopped letting new people come in, except for active duty folks, yesterday.)

I did contact 877-Navy-Bed this morning and was told that Corpus Christi RV Park was still open and taking guests. It could change at any moment, so, I'd check prior to your arrival if you have reservations.

Saw a quote from a Fort Gordon announcement today on a local TV station web site that said the Pointes West Rec Area at Lake Thurmond would remain open. The gyms, swimming pool, and bowling center are only open to active duty. The Commissary will only serve active duty and dependents from 9:00 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. I assume that means the rest of us retired slugs can go in after 1:00 P.M.....to see if there is any toilet paper or bread.

Pine View Closed. That sucks. Looks like a nice little CG. Are they planning on reopening after this mess goes away ?

All these CG closing is a bad idea. They want people to social distance, but close down areas where we can

RE; Little Rock AFB
Thanks for the info. Is this policy in writing? I would like a copy or a link stating that policy to provide to MWR at my military campground.

We are at NAS Pensacola campground and were just told that after tomorrow 03/20/20 there will be no new campers allowed in. Those that are here can stay for the duration of their of their reservations but can not extend. What we were told is that is going to be Navy wide but that is just hearsay and I don't have any facts to corroborate it. Also the National Museum of Naval Aviation here closed on Monday 03/16/20 and it is really strange not seeing the parking lot full. I'll let you know if anything changes.


UPDATE: We have just been told that we can now extend to May 11 2020.
