In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, the U.S. Marine Corps has announced changes to the Physical Fitness Test (PFT), Combat Fitness Test (CFT) and Body Composition Program (BCP) for the semi-annual calendar year 20. MARADMINs 269/20 and 260/20 discuss the suspension of PFTs, makeup CFTs, and BCP, and identify Marines exempt from the changes. (U.S. Marine Corps audio by Lance Cpl. Soline Skrzypczak)
