Joint Base San Antonio officials say they’re limiting installation service operations for the rest of Thursday. According to a statement on Twitter, unit commanders will come up with specific reporting instructions for personnel who are mission-critical.

Childcare centers will stay open to those personnel and their families, but at limited capacity. JBSA gates are still operating as normal. JBSA’s social media pages are being updated with the latest information.
