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

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.

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.
