Some of the most visible services affected include:

The Cherry Point Commissary - Closed on Monday and Tuesday

DEERS/RAPIDS - CAC cards, dependent and retiree ID cards

Pass & ID - Reduced hours, 6:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. Monday-Friday

Critical schedule updates will be shared on the Cherry Point website and Cherry Point Facebook page.
