Thank you everyone for joining us tonight. One more comment we wish to share; right now all of the missions we have been asked to support are hospital units providing care to NON Covid patients. These units are relieving pressure on current hospital systems to care for Covid Patients. Thank you again.

Understanding Health Protection Condition (HPCON) Levels - Army Public Health Center

Team 63,

Yesterday evening Fort Stewart moved to Health Protection Condition - B (HPCON-B). In an effort to keep open lines of communication in support of Team 63's first priority "safety and care of all our soldiers and family members, while maintaining ready forces to support our nation", I would like to share that information. In an abundance of caution most recommended measures have already been implemented within our unit and community. All recommendations can be found at https://phc.amedd.army.mil/topics/campaigns/covid19/Pages/HPCON.aspx.

The Army Public Health Center does recommend that all families prepare with food, supplies, and medications for babies and pets are on hand at your residence to last at least 14 days. We encourage you to purchase those items on post, as special measures for cleanliness and control have been implemented, and return to your residence.

As we all combat this virus, I ask our entire team to fundamentally change our lifestyles - there are no exceptions for any of us. Do not unnecessarily expose yourself. If you need to buy groceries, try buying them on base, and then go straight home. Do not go to bars, nightclubs, concerts, festivals, spring break, and restaurants (take out is ok). Ultimately it is everyone's responsibility to protect our nation, and to build a protective bubble around us all.

1. If you believe you have the symptoms of COVID - 19, fever and/or symptoms of acute respiratory illness (e.g., cough, difficulty breathing), DO NOT go to the Emergency Room or your Service Provider. Call the Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-874-2273 Option 1. If directed to quarantine or isolate, contact your chain of command immediately for support and execution of the quarantine and / or isolation order.

2. Social Distancing and Enhanced Cleanliness Measures have been implemented and will increase. You will see changes in our teams work schedules as we continue distancing and cleanliness measures. Work plans have been adjusted for those affected by school closures and those at high risk. As an elite Signal Battalion we must remain ready to respond when the nation calls.

As we continuously assess the situation we will execute all measures to protect all of our soldiers, families, and local community. Again I ask all of us to remain agile and flexible as changes occur and all leaders to remain engaged in ensuring force protection each day. We will keep open lines of communication through the chain of command and social media as changes in the local community drive protection measures for our entire force.

Very Respectfully,

Spur 6

The safety and well-being of our staff and the community is our utmost concern during this time of uncertainty amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, strict precautionary measures will be taken to keep our staff and the public safe with very limited contact.

Clients must remain in their cars and have a space in the back of their vehicle available for our staff to conveniently load a box of food into their car, truck or SUV.

We will only provide one (1) box per vehicle, and no exceptions will be made.

For those who use the commissary, 100% ID checks are going into effect and early bird hours will go away tomorrow.

Dear valued patrons:

To better serve our customers starting on Wednesday, March 18, we will begin 100% I.D. card checks at the entrance of all stores and will revoke the visitor policy. We believe this will reduce the number of people in our stores and help with social distancing and crowd control.

Additionally, on Thursday, March 19, we will eliminate "early bird" shopping hours to allow more time for cleaning and re-stocking of our stores. We appreciate your continued support!
