FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Fort Detrick is restricting drone use on the federal property.

The Frederick News-Post (https://bit.ly/1l5T0jm ) reports all areas of the post are now no-fly zones for unmanned aircraft including drones and remote-controlled aircraft. The only exceptions to the no-fly zones are the post’s single-family housing community and the grassy area near it.

Fort Detrick Army Garrison spokeswoman Lanessa Hill says drones have not been spotted on the federal property.

The policy, which was enacted in December, says drones will not be allowed to take video of sensitive locations including buildings, gates, guards and satellites on the post.

The fort’s restrictions are intended as an interim policy until a final policy is enacted.
