New restrictions recently went into effect for El Paso and now Fort Bliss has also enacted a few of their own new restrictions aimed at their personnel.

A curfew went into effect for El Paso on Sunday, limiting travel and activities to essential services only between 10 p.m and 5 a.m., daily. Bars and restaurants also had their operating conditions modified and Fort Bliss has pretty much ordered their personnel to abide by the same rules and conditions.

A recent order directed at military personnel ONLY was recently issued regarding their ability to dine out.

Fort Bliss and 1st Armored Division commanding general Maj. Gen. Sean C. Bernabe has ordered all Fort bliss personnel, their family members, Department of the Army civilian employees, and contractors to not only adhere to El  Paso mandates but that they also refrain from dining indoors at any area restaurants. This rule applies to eateries both on and off the post.

According to our news partners at kvia.com, the new orders also call for:

  • Fort Bliss community members are prohibited from door-to-door trick-or-treating or attending trunk-or-treat events both on or off post.
  • Service members are strongly urged to use pickup or delivery services when shopping. They are also being urged to minimize the number of people in a household from going shopping at the same time. - KVIA
