COVID-19 is at the front of everyone's minds right now. But don't forget to be prepared for other forces of nature also. See below for important information about the upcoming hurricane season.

#NMCPReadyForTheFightTonight #HurricanePrep #HurricaneStrong

Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 3-9. With hurricane season beginning on June 1, NMCP will post information and weather updates as necessary to keep you informed. Before the weather gets dangerous, here are a few things you can do to prepare your family and your household:

Make a hurricane emergency plan and share with everyone in your home. Designate someone outside the area to be a contact for your family members and share the person’s name and phone number with your family. Make sure that person knows they are the family’s emergency contact.

Put together a go bag now that includes household supplies, 1 weeks’ worth of medication, food (including a can opener), water (1 gallon per person/pet per day), clothes, disinfectant supplies, pet supplies. Keep the go bag in your trunk or where it is readily accessible.

Know your evacuation zone and evacuation route. Practice evacuating with your pets and identify where you will stay.

For more information on what you can do to prepare, visit www.ready.gov/hurricanes.

Important updates on CAC/ID cards and services provided as we continue to protect the force from COVID-19. This NAVADMIN contains specific guidance for those with an expiring CAC/ID card and processes for newly acquired dependents (i.e. spouse, child, stepchild, adopted child) enrollment in DEERS.

Important updates on ID cards and services provided as we continue to protect the force from COVID-19.

NAVADMIN 114/20

POLICY GUIDANCE UPDATE FOR IDENTIFICATION CARD

RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN provides an update to temporary guidance for Navy personnel who require Common Access Card (CAC) and Uniformed Services Identification (USID) Card services during the COVID-19 emergency in accordance with references (a) through (e). This NAVADMIN supplements reference (c) but does
not cancel it.
2. To maximize force health protection and ensure
continuity of operations, all Navy Real-time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) sites will continue to provide initial issuance or re-issuance of a CAC that will be expiring within 30 days with an appointment scheduled online. CACs will not be reissued
due to printed information changes (e.g. promotion, name change, or for any appearance changes due to relaxed grooming standards). Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employees will retain their CACs when transferring from one Service to another. CAC PIN resets will continue to be provided as a walk-in service.
3. Installation, Facility and Building Access. Service
Members are authorized physical access to DoD installations
effective 16 April 2020 with an expired CAC or USID card
through 30 September 2020 (or later if the applicable
policy is extended). The expiration date of the CAC must
be 16 April 2020 or later and for the USID card (issued to
dependents, retirees, etc.) must be 1 January 2020 or
later. The credential must be successfully verified using
an electronic physical access control system (ePACS) that
assures continued DoD affiliation against an authoritative
DoD source. An expired CAC or USID that fails to verify
shall not be accepted, but will not be confiscated unless
believed to be counterfeit. Effective 16 April 2020, DoD
components may accept expired CACs for access to facilities
and buildings on and off DoD installations. The printed
expiration date must be 16 April 2020 or later and the
continued DoD affiliation of the cardholder must be
verified. Expired credentials of any other type shall not
be accepted for facility or building access.
4. Extension of Credential Certificates. Service Members
may use ID Card Office Online (IDCO)
https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/self_service (note: there is an
underscore between self and service) to rekey CAC
certificates through 30 September 2020 or the affiliation
end date, if amended to be sooner or later.
a. Eligibility.
(1) The CAC must be unexpired when attempting to
update the certificate online.
(2) The CAC must be within 30 days of expiration
(for example, a CAC that expires on 30 May 2020 can be
updated starting on 1 May 2020).
(3) The cardholder must have an active affiliation
with DoD beyond the CAC end date.
(a) Service Members can log into IDCO at
https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/self_service to verify their
affiliation extends beyond their CAC end date.
(b) Affiliation for populations sponsored via
Trusted Agent Security Sponsor (TASS) (i.e. contractors)
must be updated in TASS prior to action being taken to
rekey the certificates.
b. Minimum computer requirements are: ActivClient 7.1
or higher, Java 8 update 144 or higher and Internet
Explorer version 7 or higher.
c. Process for extending certificates online:
(1) Step by step instructions for rekeying
certificates are posted at https://www.cac.mil/Coronavirus
in the News & Updates Section. The update is titled User
Guide Updating CAC/VoLAC Certificates. Three links are
provided.
(2) If IDCO provides an error message when trying
to rekey your certificates, you should contact one of the
following offices:
(a) NMCI: https://infosec.navy.mil/PKI/, (866)
843-6624
(b) Other: https://infosec.navy.mil/PKI/,
email INFOSEC_ITAC(at)navy.mil, (800) 304-4636
(3) If you continue to experience issues updating
your certificate online, make an appointment with the
nearest RAPIDS office to get a new CAC.
d. Actions that Service Members must take after
extending certificates online:
(1) To be able to use Government Furnished
Equipment (GFE) at home, Service Members must bring the GFE to a government facility to connect and log onto the
network, which will cache the new credentials.
(2) To send/read encrypted emails, Service Members
must upload their certificate to the Global Address List
(GAL) using Microsoft Outlook on GFE (this procedure will
not work with Outlook Web Access (OWA)). Step-by-step
directions will be posted to https://portal.secnav.navy.mil/orgs/OPNAV/N2N6/DDCION/SitePages/COVID-19.aspx.
e. Known limitations:
(1) Be aware that if you are at home when you update
your CAC certificate using this process, your government
computer will not recognize your new certificate and you will
no longer be able to log in to your computer. This process is
best accomplished when your GFE is physically connected to the
NMCI network so new CAC certificate information can be cached to your machine.
(2) Users cannot use OWA to upload CAC certificates
to the GAL.
(3) CAC PINs cannot be reset remotely or via
trusted proxy. When a Service Member needs to have their
PIN reset on their CAC, the card is inserted into the CAC
reader at a RAPIDS workstation and the Service Member must provide their fingerprint and PIN to complete the process.
5. The following additional policy changes are authorized
until 30 September 2020 (or later if the applicable policy
is extended):
a. The minimum age of USID card initial issuance is
increased from 10 years to 14 years.
b. If the affiliation of a cardholder with their
Service has not changed (i.e. they are still entitled to
benefits), USID cards which expired on or after 1 January
2020 are authorized for continued benefit use (e.g.
commissary, exchange) through 30 September 2020 (or later
if the applicable policy is extended).
c. Continued use of the Reserve USID card to obtain
active-duty benefits is authorized for mobilized Reserve
Component members and their eligible dependents.
d. Remote Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting
System (DEERS) enrollment for newly acquired dependents
(i.e. spouse, child, stepchild, adopted child) is
authorized to provide healthcare coverage. Documentation
may be scanned and e-mailed to approved Navy RAPIDS sites for
completion of the remote enrollment process. Examplesof required documentation are marriage certificate, divorce decree, birth certificate, adoption decree, acknowledgement of paternity and social security card.
Remote enrollment processing will be centralized at: Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, HI, NAVSUBASE New London, CT, NAS Whidbey Island Seaplane Base, WA, NAF El Centro, CA, NSA Annapolis,MD, NAS Fallon, NV, NAS Oceana, VA, NSA Mid-South, TN and NAVSUBASE Kings Bay, GA.
Contact My Navy Career Center at1-833-330-6622 or via e-mail at askmncc(at)navy.mil for specific documentation requirements
and POC information for the above remote enrollment processing sites.
e. USID card reissuance via USPS is authorized for
Service Members who are unable to secure an appointment at
a RAPIDS site. Service Members using this capability must
contact the nearest ID card issuing facility prior to
submitting documentation to ensure all required documents
are provided for their specific circumstances. Location
and contact information for the nearest ID card issuance
facility can be obtained through https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/.
USID cards issued during remote enrollment will not exceed
one year to allow time for the Service Members to provide
original or state certified copies of enrollment documents
to the ID card issuing facility.
6. If you or a family member have a dependent or retiree ID
card please be aware that your benefits (e.g. medical,
dental) will remain in effect as long as your military
sponsor is entitled to benefits. For example, the family
of a married E-6 with an end of active obligated service
date of January 2022 is authorized DOD benefits until that
date, regardless of the status of their ID card(s).
7. ID card sites are open and have appointment
availability. To check the operating status of a RAPIDS
site and schedule an appointment, go to the RAPIDS
Appointment Scheduler at https://rapids-appointments.dmdc.osd.mil.
Additional site-specificinformation will be provided for each location
as well as the status of alternate locations.
