Military Personnel Guidance (Supplement 1) for DOD and OSD Component Heads and Military Commanders in Responding to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) [open pdf - 31KB]
From the Document: "This attachment provides supplemental military personnel guidance to DoD and OSD [Office of the Secretary of Defense] Component Heads and military commanders (collectively referred to as 'commanders') for the administration of personnel policies and pays and benefits in the context of the effects created by the spread of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. It is intended to identify flexibilities to help DoD minimize risk to military personnel and their families, respond to evolving situations, as well as ensure the readiness of our force to continue to execute our missions and support our domestic and international partners. Commanders have broad authority to exercise sound judgment in all cases, and this guidance describes available authority and flexibility that can be applied to promote, rather than to restrict, possible solutions. Most pay and benefits for military members continue and are unaffected by the effects of COVID-19, and unless addressed by this supplemental guidance, will continue to be paid in accordance with existing laws, regulations, policies, and procedures."
