Air Force Pauses Organized Physical Training
The Air Force has paused organized physical fitness testing and training until 2021, in hopes the decision will help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the ranks.
The decision was announced last week.
“That’s really for the safety of our airmen,” said the Air Force’s senior enlisted leader, Chief Master Sergeant JoAnne Bass. “All across our Air Force, every installation is kind of in a different COVID environment, so it just makes sense to do so.”
The service is also suspending abdominal circumference measurements indefinitely.
