The military is putting in place increased safety measures to protect troops and their families as it prepares for peak moving season during the COVID-19 pandemic, officials said Wednesday.
The measures, effective immediately, were directed by Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and they come as the Defense Department is working toward a “new normal.”
“The long-term view is what do we do over the next six, 12, 18 months,” Esper said Monday during a virtual event hosted by the Brookings Institution.
“My view, the view of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the view of our commanders, is there will be a new normal that we will have to adapt to for a certain period of time.”
