A DoD stop movement order has been issued for all DoD personnel, both international and domestic. All DoD civilian personnel, and dependents of DoD Service members and DoD civilian personnel, whose travel is government-funded will stop movement, while this order is in effect.
This stop movement applies to all official travel, including temporary duty (TDY) travel; Government-funded leave travel; permanent duty travel, including Permanent Change of Station (PCS) travel; and travel related to Authorized and Ordered Departures issued by the Department of State. For DoD Service members, it also includes personal leave outside the local area and non-official travel outside the local area.
The Secretary of Defense recently signed a memo, moving to a conditions-based, phased approach to personnel movement and travel. The list of specific locations that have lifted travel restrictions can be found here: DoD Travel Restrictions: Green Locations, June 29, 2020.
Military personnel are authorized to take personal leave outside of the State of Arizona at the discretion of unit commanders. There are no further restrictions in place.
