FORT RUCKER, Ala. (WTVY) -- Fort Rucker is allowing visitors on post again.

Everyone who comes on post is required to wear a face covering.

Anyone who refuses to do so while in Fort Rucker facilities could face a 1-year ban from the installation.

The effort is to help preserve the health of the overall community and mission of Fort Rucker.

“We’ve got a very important training mission,” said Fort Rucker Garrison Commander Colonel Whitney Gardner. “Extremely important for the army and we are doing everything we can to protect the bubble of Fort Rucker. We’ve been very lucky in that we’ve managed for the most part to keep all positive cases outside of Fort Rucker.”

The face covering policy is different for each military installation.
