Fort Bliss Outlines Acceptable Face Coverings – Doesn’t Include Bane Mask
Fort Bliss put a curfew into place on April 9 from 10 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. They also put policy changes into place about when to wear a face mask during the coronavirus outbreak. You can get the entire policy change on Fort Bliss' website.
When you go into a non-residential facility or building on Fort Bliss you are required to wear a mask or appropriate cloth face covering if you can't maintain 6 feet of social distancing. That guideline about face coverings is in place even in specified Fort Bliss facilities, like the Commissary, the Main Exchange, all AAFES Barber Shops, and William Beaumont Army Medical Center.
While you have to wear facemasks in the indoor facilities listed above, masks are required only when you are going to be going into facilities on Fort Bliss and are not required while exercising outside or walking your dogs on post.
So what kind of mask should you be wearing when on Fort Bliss. Well, the officials at Bliss decided to give you a visual aid about what masks are acceptable and which are not. They really made it easy to figure out what is and isn't allowed and they showed a little bit of humor in the graphic they put together. Never let it be said that the folks at Bliss aren't a bunch of cutups when given the chance.
We at KISS FM would like to thank Fort Bliss officials for letting us use this graphic and they want you to know that "The appearance of this information graphic on KissElPaso.com does not imply endorsement by the Department of the U.S. Army."
You guys know us. Who can blame them?
