Air Force PT Tests Delayed Because of Outbreak

The Air Force has postponed upcoming fitness tests until at least June 2020 as the new coronavirus outbreak spreads, pushing back the testing dates of those who have already been scheduled until the fall.

Under the new directive, which went into effect March 17, tests originally scheduled in March will pushed back to September. Airmen scheduled for a test in April will not test until October, and those set for tests in May will now test in November.

The move comes shortly after the U.S. Navy also canceled fitness assessments for sailors because of the coronavirus outbreak.

“While testing is postponed, remember to maintain a healthy, fit lifestyle,” the Air Force said in announcing the changes. “Commitment to fitness is a commitment to the mission.”
