Imperial Brigade Soldiers and Familes of Fort Bliss and El Paso, please see the below announcement from the 1AD CG:

Announcement from the Commanding General, 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, Maj. Gen. Sean Bernabe:

Unfortunately, COVID infection rates in the El Paso area continue to increase. To protect the force and to remain in alignment with our city partners, I have directed additional measures for the Fort Bliss Community.

Effective immediately, Fort Bliss will operate at essential services only. We have closed Biggs Park, Underwood Golf Course, Bowling Center, Centennial Club, Soldiers Activity Center/Warrior Zone, and Tennis Courts. The Child Development Centers will operate at current levels; Fitness Centers, and lap swim at the Aquatic Center remain open, however, no instructor-led classes and no change to Army Community Service services. The main Exchange, Shoppettes, Military Clothing Sales, Commissary, Class VI, and Barbershops will remain open. Restaurants and Freedom Crossing will be limited to 25% capacity. All other retail stores will be closed.

William Beaumont Army Medical Center remains postured to provide medical support to the Fort Bliss installation and all eligible beneficiaries. We have taken prudent measures to maintain our ability to treat patients and ensure appropriate levels of supplies. These measures include cancellation and suspension of all elective procedures and realignment of assets to increase capacity at the main hospital.

The Health Protection Condition at Fort Bliss remains at Level Charlie. This means we continue to keep the following measures: social distancing, reducing exposure and personal contact, washing hands regularly, and wearing face masks.

These collective restrictions keep us in-step with El Paso City Officials so that we are good neighbors. These measures are in place to protect the force and balance readiness requirements.

Imperial Brigade Soldiers and Family Members, please read and adhere to the latest announcement from the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Sean Bernabe.

Announcement from the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Sean Bernabe:

Since early October, El Paso and surrounding communities have seen wide-spread transmission of COVID-19. We continue to watch these trends closely and stay in contact with City Leaders.

Earlier today, in a press release, the El Paso COVID-19 Task Force highlighted three sources of community spread: (1) visiting local stores; (2) eating at restaurants and bars; and (3) traveling to and from Mexico. The Mayor and other officials are taking action within El Paso to address these three areas.

Unfortunately, we continue to see steep increases in active cases on Fort Bliss. To help slow the spread of COVID-19 within the Fort Bliss Community, we must take aggressive action now.

In light of the most recent decisions of El Paso officials and the restrictions they put in place, I have made the decision to adjust our posture on Fort Bliss. These changes will ensure we protect the health of our Fort Bliss Community while also supporting and remaining in synch with our El Paso neighbors.

Today, I signed the Third Amended Fort Bliss Come to Work Safe, Live Safe Order. Here are a few key changes from the updated order:

(1) Curfew for Fort Bliss. Travel deemed non-mission essential will cease from 10 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. This curfew aligns exactly with the City of El Paso.

(2) Visitor Restrictions. The only authorized persons within residence are members of the household and immediate family members or those present for the purpose of conducting authorized essential activities. This restriction is in alignment with the City of El Paso.

(3) Teleworking. Unit commanders and/or supervisors are encouraged to utilize teleworking to reduce the number of personnel physically present in the work place on a daily basis.

(4) Cancellation of Trunk-or-treating events. Unit-sponsored trunk-or-treat events are no longer authorized. This cancellation also aligns with El Paso guidance. The MWR drive-thru event is the only remaining authorized Halloween event on Fort Bliss.

(5) Off-post dining and restaurant services. While within the greater El Paso area, service members are prohibited from sit-down dining or “dining-in” at off-post restaurants. Non-service members are highly encouraged to follow these instructions.

There are no additional changes to current facility hours and operations as the previous amended Come to Work Safe, Live Safe order specifies.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and compliance with these new measures. Again, it is imperative that we take aggressive action now to help flatten the curve within the Fort Bliss Community and in the greater El Paso area.

People are our greatest strength, our most valuable asset and our most important weapon system. A phenomenal piece of those people are the Soldiers, NCO’s and leaders of the Echo Battery 3-4 ADAR and 3rd Infantry Division Sentinel teams. As these Soldiers rapidly approached 365 days of boots on the ground in the CENTCOM AOR, our Army team of teams, including our Top Notch mobility team, logistics teams, the brigade staff element, U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM), 32d Army Air and Missile Defense Command and the U.S. Central Command level staff came together to ensure these Soldiers arrived back home, home to their Families and friends, prior to reaching that critical moment.

A job well done to those Soldiers and a very much deserved congratulations on your mission accomplishment ensuring regional stability and protection of critical assets through Integrated Air and Missile Defense operations.

The 11th ADA 'Imperial' Brigade wishes a warm Welcome Home to the B-2 THAAD "Bandits" upon completion of their mission of providing Air and Missile Defense of critical assets in the CENTCOM AOR.

The Soldiers, NCO's and Leaders of the Bandits should take pride in their accomplishments while deployed and thoroughly enjoy the time with your beloved families and friends. Celebrate your wins that you achieved here, demonstrate the successes you helped achieve, and know that you provided vital capabilities during your time here.

Finally, beware of the risks as you return home. Take time and be patient as you readjust and reintegrate with your families and friends. And if you need help, know that there are outlets for you to utilize and we are here to assist you as well.

Well Done on a fine display of selfless service to our Army and our country.

Imperial Brigade, please review and adhere to the new directives from 1AD and Fort Bliss. #Slowthespread #TraintoFight #BattleReady

Announcement from the Commanding General of 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, Maj. Gen. Sean C. Bernabe:

Over the last seven days, the El Paso area has reported record increases in COVID-19 cases. Yesterday marked the highest number of active cases and hospitalizations thus far. On Fort Bliss, we have also seen an increase in the number of cases over the last seven days—although our rate of increase has not been as steep as the rate in our neighboring communities.

Fort Bliss Garrison leaders, the 1st Armored Division Staff, and I have watched these trends closely. We have also conferred with the El Paso Mayor and local health officials. Yesterday, Mayor Dee Margo announced new health protection measures for El Paso. Given the current COVID trends on Fort Bliss, we will remain in-step with El Paso and adjust our posture on Fort Bliss, as well. The changes will ensure we protect the health of our Fort Bliss community while also supporting and remaining in synch with our El Paso neighbors.

Today, I signed the Second Amended Fort Bliss Come to Work Safe, Live Safe Order.

Here are a few key changes from the updated order:
(1) Private social gatherings, on-post or off-post, are permitted with a maximum of ten (10) people --provided social distancing measures are maintained. (Previously, we allowed gatherings up to 30 people).

(2) Door-to-door trick-or-treating (on-or-off post) is not authorized. However, units on Fort Bliss may conduct trunk-or-treat events within their respective areas—provided participants wear proper PPE and maintain social distancing. Units must maintain a by-name roster of participants to facilitate contact tracing.

Additionally, the Garrison Staff and I reviewed the current protective measures at facilities and services across Fort Bliss. In general, those facilities that are currently open will remain open at the current level of service. Managers and leaders will increase their inspections of these facilities to ensure compliance with directed protective measures. Gatherings at outdoor parks will be limited to ten (10) people. We will post new signs at these locations to inform community members of this change.

As a new member of the Fort Bliss Community, I have been impressed with the level of discipline, cooperation, and compliance by everyone. Thank you! If we all do our part, we will help flatten the curve—both on Fort Bliss and in the El Paso area.
