CAP National Commander Maj. Gen. Mark Smith has just issued updated COVID-19 guidance on Travel, Meetings and Missions. The current guidance from NHQ was due to expire on 11 May 2020. Highlights from today’s memo from CAP/CC:

1. The previous 14 Mar 2020 directive, Coronavirus COVID-19 Travel and Meeting Guidance, included an end date of 11 May 2020. This memo extends the effective end date of that directive until 30 June 2020.

2. In addition, the effective end date for the following two directives is also extended to 30 June 2020:

AZ Wing Director of Operations Maj. Mark Schadt says, “Given this guidance, AZ Wing will continue its current level of restricted operations. The memo also states that there will be updated guidance in the coming weeks from NHQ that will involve remobilizing certain parts of CAP. As those directives are issued, there will be additional updates on how those affect AZ Wing operations.”
