US Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Wednesday enacted a 60-day, stop movement order for all troops, civilian personnel and their family members overseas to help stop the spread of corona COVID-19.
The new order builds on travel restrictions already in place, that halted overseas travel, permanent change-of-station moves and personal leaves.
The stop movement order includes exercises, deployments, redeployments and other global force management activities, although some exceptions may be granted, the Pentagon said.
