U.S. Army Fort Drum & 10th Mountain Division

Fort Drum General Order 1E is now in effect and that means a few changes in operations moving forward so let’s map it all out. (The pun was intentional. Forgive us. It’s been a long 2020.) Also, the command team will be holding a live town hall this Thursday, July 16 at 12 noon here on the page to discuss the entire order and answer all your questions. Please join us for that!

- Travel Impacts -
The most significant change is the extension of the local travel area to a 350-mile radius. Travel within this new local travel area does not require any additional approval for those on regular pass. There are however, still restricted areas as noted in red on the map and we’re gonna go ahead and list them all: Albany County, NY; Erie County, NY; Monroe County, NY; New York City; Oneida County, NY; Onondaga County, NY; Hampden County, MA; Suffolk County, MA; Essex County, NJ; Allegheny County, PA; Philadelphia County, PA; Cuyahoga County, OH; Baltimore County, MD; Prince George County, MD; Arlington County, VA; Fairfax County, VA; Prince William County, VA; State of Delaware, Washington D.C. and Canada. Service Members may drive through these off-limits areas travelling to another destination but may not visit any destinations within those counties or states listed.

In order to travel to unrestricted areas outside of the 350-mile local travel area, Soldiers must possess a DA-31 approved by the first 0-3 in their chain of command. Travel to restricted areas must still be approved at the 0-6 level.

Soldiers are not authorized to use commercial air, train, bus or other public transportation for their travel unless approved by an O-3 commander. Taxicabs and other car services may be used within the local travel area.

Please be aware that other states and counties may have their own restrictions and requirements in place for travelers. Know what’s required before you leave. Soldiers are strongly discouraged from committing funds to travel before they have an approved DA-31.

Traveling to areas found on the NYS List of Restricted States (https://on.ny.gov/2WkwPvz) or the CDC’s Travel Recommendations list (https://bit.ly/2Cy8aNa) will automatically require a 14-day quarantine upon your return to New York State.

- Visitors -
The trusted traveler program remains suspended at this time. Visitors who have a DoD ID card or a Fort Drum local access badge may enter the installation providing they have not traveled outside of the 350-mile radius or to one of the off-limits counties.

Visitors without a DoD ID card must have sponsorship approval in the form of an Exception to Policy (ETP) to gain access to the installation. This approval happens at the first O-5 or GS equivalent in your chain of command. All other visitor requests must be approved by the Garrison Commander.

Soldiers must submit a DA-31 to the first O-3 in their chain and obtain approval to meet or reside with any non-local visitor (from outside of the 350-mile radius) or geographically separated dependent or family member outside of the installation.

- PCS/TDY Travel -
PCS and TDY Travel are now broken down into four categories:
Unrestricted Travel indicates that the origin, destination and all intermediate stops of your travel itinerary are designated as unrestricted locations. The unit must confirm that all locations continue to be unrestricted no more than 10 days before the travel is to start. If any of the locations have changed category to restricted, travel will then require a waiver to be requested and approved.

Restricted Travel requires travelers to receive an approved ETP prior to the PCS or TDY as any one of the origin, destination or intermediate stop locations are designated as restricted.

Waivered Travel means you’ve requested and received an ETP and your PCS/TDY has been deemed necessary. This can be the case for extreme hardship, humanitarian reasons or in support of the mission. G1 will continue to coordinate and validate these requests and route to the first General Officer in a Soldier’s chain for approval.

Exempted Travel is PCS/TDY that does not require a waiver. This exemption will be indicated on orders or in a memo that travelers must carry with them. Some examples of Exempted Travel include: travel for Soldiers/DA Civilians pending retirement, separations or release from Active Duty. Also included is travel by patients and medical providers as well as their attendants and escorts; travel to and from professional military programs and travel for Global Force Management activities.

You can find all of this information fully broken down in General Order 1E on our website here: https://bit.ly/3gTrPpq

Please remember that the wear of masks is still required anytime you cannot maintain a distance of six feet or more in all public facilities. Also ensure you continue to comply with state requirements by wearing your mask over your mouth and nose when off post in an area where you cannot maintain a safe social distance.

We’ll continue to share the latest updates here and on our website: home.army.mil/drum

U.S. Army Fort Drum & 10th Mountain Division

We’ve received additional guidance on what the changes to the force-wide stop movement policy means for the 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum. The DoD recently announced plans for a conditions-based, phased approach to personnel movement and, while things are opening up around the country and OCONUS, there are still restrictions for official travel.

All of the following types of movement require an Exception to Policy (ETP) approved by the first general officer in a Soldier's Chain of Command:
- Temporary Duty travel (TDY)
- Government - funded leave travel
- Permanent Change of Station travel (PCS)
- All other types of official travel
- Personal leave outside the local area
- Non-official travel outside the local area
Please note that ordinary leave and passes within the 200-mile extended local area will still be approved at the 0-5 level.

There are certain types of travel that don’t require an ETP:
- Deployments and Redeployments
- Travel by personnel who departed their permanent duty station prior to stop move
- Travel by personnel who were TDY prior to stop move and TDY will end while stop move is in effect
- Travel by military and civilian personnel pending retirement or separation (SM's are authorized to take leave associated with transition leave)
- Travel to and from Professional Military Education Programs
- Travel associated with recruiting / accessions activities

An Exception to Policy for movement may be granted for one of the following reasons:
- Travel is determined to be mission essential. In this case, the gaining unit must initiate the request to the losing command’s G1
- Travel is necessary for humanitarian reasons.
- Travel is warranted due to extreme hardship
Please ensure Soldiers work with their chain of command and personnel sections for questions regarding policy exemptions and procedures.

We recognize that this doesn’t look like what many of us thought we would find when the stop order end date was rescinded. The unfortunate reality is that this delayed PCS season won’t be normal. Travel is going to require some additional hoops and plans are going to change once again (for maybe the 100th time). In the coming days and weeks, the command team will continue to evaluate conditions and review how they affect this policy as we work to assist our Soldiers and Family members. When there are any changes or updates we will share right away! We’ll also hold a Facebook Town Hall on Thursday, June 18 at 1200 to talk about the process for requesting an ETP to PCS, what situations will warrant an ETP, leave in conjunction with PCS, shipping of household goods and any other questions you may have. Please spread the word and join us!

Good morning all! Fort Drum is now operating under Health Protection Condition Bravo. The move to HPCON Bravo means some changes to procedures and services that have been published in General Order 1D and we’ll be outlining those below. These changes may seem like the initial steps on the path back to “normal” but it is vital to recognize that we each have a personal responsibility to continue using the preventative measures that have kept COVID 19 from gaining a foothold in our community. Remember to practice social distancing, wear your masks, wash your hands and keep up to date with community news and guidance. We’ll continue to share the latest updates here and on our website: home.army.mil/drum

Also, we are currently experiencing a phone service outage throughout the installation. The Guthrie appointment lines are down. Fort Drum Medical Activity is working on getting the system up and running as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can still make same-day appointments by going to TRICAREOnline.com, calling the MHS Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273), or by sending a message through TRICARE Online Secure Messaging. The barber shop at the PX is taking walk ins as customers will be unable to get through to book today's appointments.

Travel Radius: The extended travel radius now encompasses a distance of 200 miles outside of Fort Drum with the exception of specific high-risk areas to include Albany County, Onondaga County (where Chick-fil-A is, to save everyone some googling), Monroe County, Erie County, Oneida County, Hampden County (MA) and Canada. Service Members can travel inside of the local travel area (60 miles) without any leave or pass. In order to travel within this extended local travel area (200 miles), SMs need approved leave or pass (signed DA-31, O5 level). You may, of course, drive through the prohibited areas (with the exception of Canada) en route to your destination. Please be aware that the extended travel radius includes some portions of other states that have their own travel restrictions and guidance. Before traveling, please research any requirements your destination may have in place. Leave for travel outside of the 200 mile radius or to an off limits area will still require an Exception to Policy. Please also note that if someone from a Soldier’s household travels outside of the radius or if you meet with individuals who reside outside the 200 miles, a two-week quarantine will be required. This is in an effort to mitigate any possible exposure or spread of the virus. If you have questions please reach out to your chain of command or supervisor for additional guidance.

Visitors: Soldiers are required to obtain approval through the chain of command for all visitors to enter Fort Drum regardless of their distance from the installation. If you are not an Active Duty Soldier but reside on the installation you may request to have a visitor enter Fort Drum by contacting the Fort Drum Department of Public Works, Housing Division, 315-772-7256. These requests are subject to approval by the Garrison Commander.

Parks and Playgrounds: Parks are now open for use by community members, this includes those playgrounds in the Fort Drum Mountain Community Homes footprint and the dog parks. Before grabbing the sunblock and heading out please remind family members about the importance of social distancing and ensure children wash their hands. Also, please be aware that these facilities will not be cleaned and it’s up to park visitors to ensure they aren’t contributing to overcrowding.

Guidance for Gatherings: On post, outdoor gatherings are now permitted for a maximum of 25 individuals. Please continue to maintain social distancing throughout these events. When inside, gatherings are permitted when social distancing guidelines can be maintained and the facility does not reach more than 50% of its total capacity.

Barracks: Cross barracks visitation is now authorized. Soldiers should continue to follow social distancing guidelines.

DFACs: Beginning the week of June 15, dining facilities will be open for dine-in service. Social distancing requirements will still be in place and seating is restricted to every other seat. All DFACs are limited to a 50% capacity for diners. Salad bars/grab and go remain closed.

Education Center: Beginning on June 8, the Ed Center will open the Army Personnel Test (APT) Center and conduct counseling via telephone, email and online. Starting approximately June 22, staff will begin AM/PM classes for the Basic Skills Education Program (BSEP).

Face Masks: The wearing of face masks continues to be a requirement when entering the Commissary, Exchange, Shopettes or any other public or work area where a minimum of 6 feet of social distance cannot be continuously maintained.
