USO suspends airport locations over coronavirus concerns

USO has announced a temporary suspension in operations at all USO Airport Centers in the US, the organization said.

Operations at the USO Centers will be closed until further notice in order to maintain safe environments and avoid unnecessary risks of exposure due to the spread of coronavirus.

USO is following Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance and working closely with military, airport and civil authorities. These measures are being implemented to ensure the safety and health of military service members and families, USO staff, and 30,000 USO volunteers and to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19 in the communities in which USO serves.

USO airport locations will continue to support military requests for large military personnel movements through airports and provide essential services in consultation with local military leadership. USO will continue to provide programs and resources to service members and their families across the globe as best as possible while minimizing health risks.

The USO strengthens America´s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. The USO is a private, nonprofit organization, not a government agency. Programs, services and entertainment tours are made possible by the American people, support of corporate partners, and volunteers and staff.
