Government Shutdown Ends

USAG Stuttgart Public Affairs

Last updated Feb. 9, 3:50 p.m. 

The Government Shutdown has ended. All who were furloughed today (Feb. 9) will report back to work on their next duty day. Personnel should check in with their commands for any further guidance.

___________________________

Unless otherwise directed, all workforce personnel should report to their duty location, Feb. 9 for further instruction on the impact of the Government shutdown.

Only operations and activities essential to life, health and safety — as well as the protection of our national security — are exempted from shutting down. This means that some garrison services may be limited, reduced or closed.

Significant impacts to the community include the minimal service at Army Community Service, the garrison in/out processing center and the passport office.

The commissary, all AAFES facilities, childcare services, the health clinic, fitness centers, the dining facility, shuttle bus services and DoDEA schools will remain operational during normal hours. If uncertain whether a garrison service is closed, always call ahead. Use the phone book online or in the garrison mobile app (search USAG Stuttgart).

This list is subject to change based on manpower and resource availability. Unless otherwise noted, hours listed apply to all USAG Stuttgart locations.
