(CNN)The US military reported a record high number of coronavirus cases on Tuesday with 1,314 new cases, according to Defense Department statistics.

This comes as several military bases across the country have had to once again tighten health measures to protect the force and military families.

Since last week, 10 Air Force installations instituted stronger measures at Health Protection Condition Level Charlie just one step below the most stringent level.

One of the installations impacted is Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, which houses what the Air Force calls "the largest and most demanding advanced air combat training mission in the world. "

In the Navy, 37 installations worldwide are now at the higher level of health protection.

The Army now says since the beginning of the month, 59 installations are at the higher protection level with Fort Gordon, Georgia, just added to the list on Wednesday.

At Fort Bliss, Texas, in the hard hit area of El Paso, stringent new measures are now in place for troops and families including maintaining 10 feet of distance while exercising or running and a curfew from 10 p. m. to 5 a. m. The Marine Corps says it does not currently have any bases at the higher protection level.
