The government shutdown continues, but civilian workers at McConnell Air Force Base are back on the job.
The civilian employees were recalled this morning, said Lt. Jessica Brown of McConnell Public Information. The employees are working their normal schedules.
In addition, the base's commissary is expected to re-open Tuesday.
There are nearly 500 civilian workers at the base. Riughly two-thirds were furloughed when the government shutdown began last week.
