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.

Congratulations to the Struble family! Baby Juliette was born on March 14, healthy but tiny. A few weeks early, she had to do some growing before she could go home. After 2.5 weeks in the NICU, they were able to take her home yesterday to finally meet big brother James and big sister Addison. We are so happy for y’all!

Beginning tomorrow we're launching a new resource for those currently under quarantine orders who are in need of assistance. Soldiers and Families in medically-required quarantine or isolation in their homes are being supported by their units. However, if for some reason they need access to an on-post service and their needs are not being met they should call the Fort Drum Quarantine & Isolation Assistance Line at 315-783-5828. This number will be manned Monday - Friday, 8am - 4pm. Please note Soldiers quarantined or isolated in barracks must work through their unit for assistance.

Gate Changes Update: We’ve updated the access procedures outline to provide some more in-depth information about what you can now expect when entering Fort Drum. Please see the updated info below and share any questions!

Cerjan and Gas Alley Access Control Points are open. Wheeler-Sack Army Airfield Gate and Mount Belvedere Access Control Points are closed.

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

Those seeking admittance to post via the Cerjan and Gas Alley Access Control Points will be required to submit to a verbal screening:

1. Have you had contact with someone with a positive COVID-19 test or has a pending COVID-19 test?
2. Are you feeling ill?
3. Do you have a cough?
4. Have you had a fever or felt feverish in the past 24 hours?
5. Have you traveled outside of 40 miles from Fort Drum?

Those who answer yes to any these questions 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. Local access badges are 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.

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.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work to prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

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

Good morning everyone! There have been a lot of questions, concerns and anxieties voiced about the changes to access procedures at the gates. We want to assure everyone that if you live on the installation, you will not be kept from your home. Anyone presenting with the symptoms of COVID 19 will just require additional screening and precautionary measures. Those with a bona fide need to enter post will be granted access and medical staff will give guidance on a case by case basis. If you live off post and want to seek medical care at Guthrie or CTMC, call MEDDAC for guidance BEFORE attempting to go to the clinic. If you are returning for your Soldiers redeployment or traveling farther than 40 miles or need a visitors pass for a family member, work through your chain of command and SFRG for guidance and to secure visitor passes. Our goal is to make this policy work for everyone while keeping our community as healthy as possible. As more information is available we will share it, so stand by for updates.

There have also been some changes for CDCs today so make sure you check out the "Services Status" section of this (very long) post if it applies to you and your family. Thank you for your patience during these fast changing times! Please continue to ask your questions and leave your comments.

- 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. Soldiers should be vigilant about protecting themselves and their Family members from scams during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Federal Government will never call you seeking information about your bank account or other financial matters and you should never provide that information over the phone. 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. More information: https://ag.ny.gov/press-release/2020/ag-james-warns-north-country-about-coronavirus-scams. Soldiers and Family members with questions and/or concerns may also contact the Fort Drum Legal Assistance Office at 315-772-5261.

- Travel Guidance -
A New York state executive order, "New York State on PAUSE," directs all non-essential businesses statewide to close all in-office personnel functions at 8PM on Sunday, 22 March. There are several "essential businesses or entities" that are exempt from closure. For the purposes of this order, Defense and National Security-related operations supporting the U.S. Government and contractors to the U.S. Government are specifically excluded from the New York State executive order. Accordingly, all DoD personnel and DoD contractor personnel should continue to report for duty as directed by their supervisor. If DoD personnel encounter local law enforcement during such travel, DoD personnel should identify themselves using Common Access Cards and explain the nature of their work and travel in support of DoD.
