While lawmakers in Washington, D.C., have reached a deal to end the partial shutdown of the federal government, Fort Leavenworth was impacted Monday by the temporary shutdown.

As the new work week began, some fort personnel were not at their jobs.

A memorandum issued ahead of the shutdown by Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick M. Shanahan indicated that active duty military personnel would continue working in the normal duty status. But civilian personnel who were not considered necessary for the operation of essential activities would be furloughed during the shutdown.

Classes for the Command and General Staff Officer Course at Fort Leavenworth's Command and General Staff College were still in session Monday, according to Lt. Col. Kirk Luedeke, director of public affairs for the Combined Arms Center and Fort Leavenworth.

But other classes offered at the fort were not in session. One such class was a Pre-Command Course that was scheduled to begin Monday. The course was postponed because of the shutdown.

"We're in the process of developing a way ahead for addressing the gap in training for that particular course," Luedeke said in an email.

Despite the shutdown, the Munson Army Health Center remained open Monday.

The partial government shutdown began over the weekend after federal lawmakers failed to pass a bill to continue to fund the government.

Lawmakers reached an agreement Monday that will continue to fund the federal government through Feb. 8, ending the partial shutdown.

The impact of the partial shutdown was not as noticeable at two other federal entities in Leavenworth – the Eisenhower VA Medical Center and U.S. Penitentiary.

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs website, the VA's Veterans Health Administration received appropriations for the current fiscal year as part of the 2017 budget.

Because of this two-year funding cycle, the Eisenhower VA Medical Center was unaffected by the partial government shutdown. Joseph Burks, public affairs officer for the VA Eastern Kansas Health Care System, said there were no employee furloughs Monday at the Leavenworth hospital.

At the U.S. Penitentiary, employees reported for work Monday because of the nature of their jobs, Associate Warden Jason Streeval said.

“We're essential basically,” Streeval said.
