Masks required in indoor public spaces on post from Nov. 18

COVID cases are spiking in Germany, both on and off post, and many of the cases are coming from community spread.

In accordance with DoD guidelines, coupled with Baden-Württemberg’s move to “Alarm” level, and most importantly, to ensure the health and welfare of the Stuttgart Military Community, a masking requirement remains in effect.

During this time, at a minimum, medical masks must be worn in all indoor public spaces – garrison services, commissaries, PX, etc.) for everyone, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, over the age of five.

The mask mandate does not apply to outdoor activities at this time, and masks do not have to be worn while actively using exercise equipment inside fitness centers.

There is no initial change to our front-door services, and indoor dining will still be allowed, but at a reduced capacity.

We will actively inform the community with new updates as circumstances change.

Full COVID guidelines for the Stuttgart military community are available here.
