Col. Jason Condrey, USAG Stuttgart commander, has announced several expansions of service in response to the needs of the Stuttgart military community. Unless otherwise noted, changes take effect immediately.
Please note that all existing COVID-prevention requirements — including mask wear, hand washing/sanitizing, and physical distancing — must be observed while utilizing these facilities. Delays may occur due to the limitations on the number of customers allowed in at once, so your patience is requested and appreciated.
