- Reporting Status -
Mission Essential/Required Personnel Only

Please speak with your chain of command/supervisor to determine whether or not you are considered mission essential/required and for further guidance.

- Gate Information -
WSAAF Gate: CLOSED
Cerjan Gate: OPEN
Gas Alley Gate: OPEN
Mount Belvedere Gate: CLOSED; Reopening to DOD ID HOLDERS ONLY beginning Saturday May 2 at 0530 and will remain open 24/7. Non DoD ID holders attempting to access the installation through Mount Belvedere ACP (i.e contractors, personnel with an approved visitors pass or local access badge) will be turned away and asked to proceed to LTG Paul Cerjan or Gas Alley gates. As the Trusted Traveller program is still suspended, this includes personnel traveling with a DoD ID card holder (i.e. visitor's pass holder, local access badge holder, Taxi/Uber/Lyft transporting DoD ID holders). These individuals will be turned around and directed to LTG Paul Cerjan or Gas Alley gates due to medical screening requirements.

The Cerjan and Gas Alley Access Control Points will have designated lanes for DOD ID card holders and Non-DOD ID card holders. Please look out for those signs and enter the appropriate lane.

Those seeking admittance to post will be required to submit to a verbal screening: Have you traveled outside of 40 miles from Fort Drum?

Those who answer yes will be provided further guidance by the gate guard on duty. If it is determined that the individual is at risk and they have official business on Fort Drum, they will be directed to the proper military treatment facility for further evaluation. Individuals that exhibit any symptoms due to allergies will be allowed onto post.

Individuals returning to Fort Drum from an off-post medical appointment should inform the medical screener at the gate that you are returning to your on post residence from a medical appointment.

No one who has a requirement to access the installation for essential services (PX, Commissary, emergency services) will be turned away from the installation. This includes Soldiers/dependents living on post, Soldiers/dependents living off post who are seeking medical care on post, DOD ID card holders (Active duty military, DA Civilians, and dependents) and retirees and eligible family members.

Individuals at risk that do not have official business on Fort Drum will be advised to seek further medical evaluation at an off post medical facility.

The Trusted Traveler program is suspended. Visitors with a bona fide need to enter post will need to go to the Visitor Control Center (Cerjan Access Control Point) during normal business hours from 5:30am – 10pm, where they will submit to background checks and screening.

All visitor passes must be resubmitted through the Soldier’s Chain of Command. Anyone wishing to have a visitor on post who is traveling from more than 40 miles away will need to submit both a completed visitor request memo and an application for sponsorship to the Physical Security Office. You can find an example memo here: https://bit.ly/2wDPdGk It should be completed by your unit prior to submission. You can find the application for sponsorship here: https://bit.ly/3auItcf Completed forms can be submitted to [email protected] (preferred method) in advance or at the VCC in person during normal operating hours.

Retirees and beneficiaries must go through medical screening before entering post.

Contractors and other service providers should seek clarification for Fort Drum access from their supervisors.

Delivery drivers who weren’t vetted for access prior to the pandemic will be directed to the Visitor Control Center at the Cerjan Gate. There they will need to submit to background check and show proof of their delivery requirement and if all is in order, they’ll be allowed access to make the delivery. If, for any reason the delivery driver does not pass the background check, customers will need to pick up their anticipated delivery at the VCC.

Taxis, Uber and Lyft drivers that were vetted to operate on Fort Drum will now be allowed to bring DoD ID card and Local Access Badge holders onto post for drop-off purposes only. After dropping off the fare, they must immediately leave post and will not be allowed to pick up additional fares while on post. It is suggested that individuals looking to use these services to get onto post ask their drivers if they have approved access to the installation prior to accepting the ride and incurring a fee.

Taxi drivers who do not already have pre-vetted access will be given one-time access to post to drop off their riders if they submit to and successfully clear backgrounds checks and their riders are in possession of DOD ID/LAB holders and/or an Exception to Policy as necessary (ie. greater than 40 miles of travel). Riders should expect to pay an increased fare based on the time it takes for an un-vetted driver to submit to the background checks/gain entry to post. Riders can choose to be dropped off at the Visitor Control Center and picked up by a DOD ID card holder if the driver does not have access to post.
Riders who have an ETP to access post (GS14+/O5+ approved bona fide need to enter post) but do not have a DoD ID/LAB card must submit to background checks (and successfully clear) prior to entry to post via any of these services.

Visitors without a valid ETP are NOT permitted. Anyone accessing post via a taxi/Uber/Lyft must have the following based on the nature of the access request:

1. DOD ID CARD/Local Access Badge/ Valid ID and, if applicable, one of the below:
a. Valid ETP if traveled outside of 40 miles
b. Valid ETP by a GS 14/O5 or higher with Command authority if not in possession of a DOD ID Card/LAB (Personnel are required to have a background check prior to entry, personnel arriving by taxi will be granted a day pass in order to link up with sponsor and complete the escort process).

- Health Guidance -
Care for COVID Positive Patients:
Bowe TMC will be closed to routine healthcare services and only treating those patients identified as COVID 19 positive. Any COVID-19 positive beneficiaries, including Soldiers, Family members and Retirees, are asked to contact their assigned Nurse Case Manager or the MEDDAC Appointment Line at (315) 772-2778 to request an appointment before physically going to a treatment facility. This includes appointments for both COVID-19 related care and non-COVID-19 related care. Please inform the call center representative of your COVID-19 status. Soldiers previously receiving primary care at Bowe TMC will now receive their care at the Conner TMC. Family members and Retirees will still receive their primary care at the Guthrie clinic unless they are COVID-19 positive.

Wear of Masks:
Masks are required to be worn in all public spaces where a distance of 6 feet or more between individuals cannot be maintained. This also applies to the PX and Commissary. Customers must be wearing a mask/face covering to enter and they will not be provided at the door so please ensure you bring one with you.
• Soldiers are authorized to wear the neck gaiter and other cloth items, such as bandannas and scarves, as face coverings. This guidance applies for both indoors and outdoors as well as while in uniform. Everyone will use good judgment in choosing a mask or cloth face covering.
• Service members will not wear masks or cloth face coverings that have profanity, racist, demeaning or derogatory logos, script or imagery.
• The medical white and light blue type / style mask is authorized with all uniforms.
• Cloth masks or face coverings should be washed daily.
• Do not wear the N95 respirator mask. It should be reserved for our medical personnel.
• Do not wear high altitude training masks in uniform.
Remember – the mask is not to protect you from getting the virus, it is to protect the spread of the virus as you may be asymptomatic and not know that you have the disease. You can find the full DoD memo here: https://bit.ly/2X9C6aF If you have any questions about the wearing of face coverings within your unit or workplace, please reach out to your chain of command or supervisor.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order requiring all individuals to wear face masks when in public and unable to maintain a distance of 6 feet or more from others. So remember to bring your mask if you’re headed off post

COVID Screening:
Active duty Soldiers who wish to be screened and who’re experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 such as a cough, fever or shortness of breath, can report to the central screening location outside of the Conner Troop Medical Clinic between the hours of 0800 and 1700, Monday - Friday. Outside of those hours, Soldiers should reach out the the Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-874-2273 for guidance.

Family members and retirees who are Fort Drum MEDDAC beneficiaries and who are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 should call the Guthrie appointment line at (315) 772-2778 during business hours for screening. After hours please call the Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-874-2273, select option 1.

The drive-up pharmacy will continue to operate until further notice, more info here: https://bit.ly/2WuGbG8

DA Civilians experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 while at work or on duty should immediately notify their supervisor and call the MEDDAC Occupational Health Clinic at (315) 681-1901 between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. A healthcare worker will conduct an initial screening over the phone and provide additional information as to your next steps. For after-hours care or when not on duty, employees should contact their primary care provider and follow their directions for screening.

- Facility Entrance Procedures -
Mandatory health screenings are now being conducted for those wishing to gain entrance to the Exchange, Commissary and Clark Hall. Anyone seeking admittance to these buildings will be required to submit to a temporal temperature check and answer the same questions being required at the gates.

Guthrie Clinic: Single Point of Entry - Everyone entering the clinic will do so at the far side of the Primary Care Clinic and follow the directions of the MEDDAC personnel at the tents for screening. Employees can be screened at the Radiology / Lab entrance between 6 and 7 am. After 7 am, employees will utilize the PCC entrance.

OB/GYN clinic at the Samaritan Medical Center: Before your visit, please read through the following questions. If you answer yes to any of the questions, call the clinic at 315-785-4609 before arriving at the clinic to receive further guidance from our staff:
1. Have you had contact with someone with a positive COVID-19 test or has a pending COVID-19 Test?
2. Do you have a cough?
3. Have you had a fever, chills, sweats, body ache in the past 7 days?
4. Are you feeling ill?

At this time, only the patient is allowed into the clinic. Partners are being asked to wait in the car. Patients can video conference their partners during appointments if desired.

Behavioral Health: Patients should report to the Conner Troop Medical Clinic for screening prior to going to the Wilcox Clinic or Embedded Behavioral Health clinics. Once cleared, patients will receive a wristband which will be required before entering one of the behavioral health clinics.

Clark Hall: Single Point of Entry - Anyone needing to access Clark Hall must enter through the front doors of the facility. This includes mail clerks retrieving mail for units. After entering through the front doors, mail clerks should proceed to the second floor and utilize C-wing to access the Official Mail Distribution Center.

- Scam Alert -
There have been recent reports of scammers calling members of the Fort Drum community and claiming to be representatives from the federal government reaching out to provide federal relief funds.

Anyone who believes they are the victim of a scam or predatory action should contact the Office of the New York Attorney General to file a complaint.

So the rest of the state is still on PAUSE but MWR is up and running? Moral, welfare & recreation is that important to the mission? Who knew.... MWR should really consider Taking the M out of your name ... you are no longer very good at supporting the morale of the soldiers you were designed to serve. Seems like you are more interested in making money off the backs of the soldiers. I guess you could replace morale with money and still be MWR.
Since maple days was off where can we buy the fort drum maple syrup?

What night and time are they doing the trick or treat on post this year
Not sure if I’m the only one that was annoyed with this auction already this morning 😕... spent half hour driving up and down Oswego ave looking for the building for the property auction and nothing. Where the address puts you, there’s not even a building. And then figured I’d go check out the cars, and then was told that it’s not til 1400 when the lot will open.
I'm a top fan, and this is my first post 😂
Come see me Fridays to get your fitness on. Your child must have a CYS active pass and health assessment. From 4-5pm are ages 7-17, from 5-6pm are families. You can bring ages 5 or 6 to the FAMILY class, as long as they have the stuff I mentioned and can take direction. You can stop over or give me a call! We will be doing warmup, Speed and Agility, strength and cool down :)
