NBC News reports:
The U.S. Army has paused the movement of future U.S. soldiers to basic combat training, the department announced Monday.
“This tactical pause will allow commands to ensure appropriate safety measures are in place and are operating effectively at training installations,” the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, which oversees training of Army recruits, said in a statement.
The pause does not affect recruits currently in basic training. They will continue under screening and monitoring guidelines established in March, and proceed to their next assignment upon graduation. Current protocols include “social-distanced-enabled training” and reduced movement of trainees.
