The US Marine Corps has come under criticism for requiring Marines to maintain haircut standards despite the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

In a widely circulated video, Marines were shown queuing for haircuts. In the video, the Marines are not wearing masks or social distancing as recommended to prevent the spread of the virus.

Earlier this month, the base tweeted that it was keeping barbershops open.
