FORT JACKSON, SC (WIS) -

Fort Jackson officials have issued a statement regarding the government shutdown and what it means for the military installation.

All active duty personnel and civilians are to report to work as usual. At that time, civilians will be told whether or not the furlough affects them. All facilities, including the elementary school, dining facilities, and gyms, will remain open.

The commissary will open on Monday and remain open until close of business on Wednesday.

Below is the full list of updates sent out by Fort Jackson:

  • All active duty personnel will report to work as usual.
