Air Education and Training Command officials announced all travel for international military students scheduled to begin Air Force-sponsored training in the United States has been suspended effective March 13.
The suspension applies to students from any overseas country, regardless of their CDC-level.
The guidance does not, at this time, affect any international military student already in the continental U.S. and attending the training.
he Pentagon announced Friday that members of the armed services, Defense Department civilian employees and their family members who are living on or serving at military properties can no longer travel domestically starting Monday, to curtail the spread of the coronavirus.
According to air force times, the Air Force Personnel Center detailed how the Defense Department’s 60-day stop movement order to areas facing serious coronavirus outbreaks will affect airmen.
The movement restrictions cover all types of official travel, including permanent changes of station, temporary duty, and government-funded leave for uniformed and civilian personnel, and include personal leave and other non-official travel for uniformed personnel, AFPC said.
The restrictions cover locations that have a Level 3 travel health notice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including most of Europe, South Korea, China and Iran, AFPC said. The CDC’s list of travel advisories can be found here.
