COVID-19 FAQs

SELF-CARE AND MEDICAL

WHAT DO I DO IF I START FEELING SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19?

Active duty members only: MDG opened a Respiratory Clinic Hotline from 0600-1630 Monday-Friday and 0600-1200 Saturday-Sunday for ACTIVE DUTY members only who have fever and cold/flu-like symptoms.  Active Duty members can call the Hotline at 773-5132 or 773-3915 or 773-5083.  You will be triaged over the phone and disposition will be determined. 

Active Duty members with any other acute concerns or respiratory issues after the above hours, call the appointment line during normal duty hours at 773-3461 and wait for your Primary Care Team to call you back.  After duty hours or on the weekend, call the Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-TRICARE.

For dependents and retirees, call the appointment line during normal duty hours at 773-3461 and wait for your Primary Care Team to call you back.  If after duty hours or on the weekend, call the Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-TRICARE. Retirees, check-in at the Visitor’s Center outside of Gate 1 (Randall Ave.) for pre-screening and to receive a pass before proceeding on base for medical services.

IS THE PHARMACY STILL OPEN?

Yes, but prescriptions will not be filled the same day because the supply chain has been behind. Prescriptions will be filled in 72 hours and will need to be scheduled for pick-up. They can be picked up at the tent outside of the clinic. 

To activate a prescription call 307-773-3638; this is a direct line to the pharmacy, so it is also a good number to call if you have any questions regarding your prescription. They will schedule a time for you to pick up your prescription from the tent.

For refills, although you can do an automated refill or request it online, you will need to call the scheduling line at 307-773-4643 to schedule a time to pick-up from the tent. Please follow the guidance of calling in your refills within 1-2 weeks before you are going to run out.

If you do not schedule a time, it can take up to two hours for them to bring it out to you, and it will be a major burden on the Med Group.

*Retirees please let them know you can only come on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. according to the new base access procedures for retirees.

They are encouraging people with recurring prescriptions to have their prescriptions delivered to their home through ExpressScripts. This helps with social distancing.

If you need a same-day prescription filled, you can send it to a pharmacy in town.

ARE ALL APPOINTMENTS AT THE CLINIC NOW CANCELLED?

The clinic is maximizing the use of virtual appointments, including appointments already scheduled. The MDG staff will contact you or call the appointment line (773-3461), talk to your provider by telephone, and if you and your provider decide you need to be seen, it will be arranged. You can also register for tolsecuremessaging.com or use Tricare Online to securely message your provider team for referrals, renewing prescriptions, etc. Well child visits for children under 2 years old are still occurring in the mornings, but for children over 2 years old the appointments are being postponed. 

WHAT ABOUT IMRS?

IMR processes continue for labs, immunizations, and PHAQ (web). Dental flight is only completing pre-deployment IMR needs, no others.

SHOULD I CANCEL OFF BASE APPOINTMENTS?

If you can, it is recommended, especially for appointments like physical therapy that may be able to be done at home if the doctor gives you exercises. Talk to your off base caregiver, they will have a better idea of your need. You will be able to get back on base if you do have to leave for a medical appointment. 

ARE MILITARY MEMBERS ALLOWED TO WEAR HOMEMADE MASKS?

The Med Group is currently assessing this to make sure the correct materials that will actually protect them are being used.

For more information about the virus and prevention visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2Findex.html

 

HEALTH PROTECTION CONDITION (HPCON) LEVELS

HOW DOES HPCON C AFFECT BASE OPERATIONS?

We were previously at HPCON B+, so many C measures were already implemented. New changes:

  • Base access procedures for retirees and veterans: this population will only be able to gain access to base for medical needs and shopping at the Commissary and Exchange on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1300-1630 after being pre-screened at the Visitor’s Center. 

  • The CDC and Youth Center are restricted to children of mission essential personnel only

  • DFAC is restricted to meal card holders and mission essential personnel only

  • Gate 5 will only be used for commercial entry, while Gate 2 is for passengers

  • No local deliveries will be permitted on base; it is suggested they meet you at the parking lot outside of Gate 2 (UPS, USPS, etc. still permitted entry)

  • All playgrounds, tennis courts, and gyms are closed

  • All NAF facilities and activities are closed and cancelled

  • No gatherings in base homes permitted

WHO IS MISSION ESSENTIAL?

In this case, mission essential means the people needed to keep the day to day operations going to continue to provide a basic level of service while still meeting the mission needs. Everyone who is mission essential has been notified If there is any confusion, please contact your supervisor immediately

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT HPCON LEVELS?

.  

BASE ACCESS

WHO IS ABLE TO GET ON BASE?

Active duty members, dependents, and mission essential personnel. Use Gate 2.

  • Visitor access will only be granted for essential visitors using the extended pass procedures through unit leadership and the Pass and ID office. Examples of essential visitors: family members who may be staying on base to assist in child/family care plans, medical visits for family support, etc…

  • Retiree base access is limited to medical needs and shopping at the Commissary and Exchange during set hours. These hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

  • VA card holder access is limited to shopping at the Commissary and Exchange during set hours. These hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

HOW CAN I REQUEST AN EXTENDED VISITOR PASS FOR ESSENTIAL VISITORS?

Process:

  1. The sponsor/member will need to complete a memorandum with all pertinent data for squadron commander/equivalent approval. 

  2. Once the extended term memorandum has been endorsed/approved by the squadron commander/equivalent, the sponsor/member returns the approved memorandum to 90 SFS/S5B for processing/implementation.

  3. The sponsor/member will be provided with the pass for their visitor.

*Final approval authority will reside with the sponsor/member’s squadron commander/equivalent.

If/when possible, pre-authorization is recommended.  When pre-authorization is not possible, visitors meeting criteria will be issued a 72-hour pass in order to provide requisite time for the sponsor/member to complete the extended term pass process.

NOTE:  As a precautionary measure, visitors will be required to answer specific health questions whether being issued a 72-hour pass, or an extended pass.  Visitors may be denied pass approval based on the answers provided.

Please work with your chain of command to answer any specific questions you may have… much of this will be tackled case by case.

I HAVE FAMILY VISITING, ARE THEY ABLE TO GET ON BASE?

We are trying to reduce the amount of visitors to the base. Non-mission essential visits are not authorized, however visits will be addressed on a case-by-case basis to allow for special circumstances, such as help with child care or medical needs.  Please work these visits through your Chain of Command.

ARE DELIVERY SERVICES ABLE TO GET ON BASE?

No local deliveries (food deliveries, PostMates, etc.) will be permitted on base; it is suggested they meet you at the parking lot outside of Gate 2. Deliveries from UPS, USPS, FEDEX, etc. are still permitted entry.

BASE HOUSING

I WORK OFF BASE, IF THE BASE CLOSES, WILL I BE ABLE TO RETURN TO MY HOME ON BASE?

There is no point at which we would keep you from returning to your home on base.

SPOUSES/FAMILIES OFTEN HELP EACH OTHER OUT, HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO THAT IF WE CAN’T GO TO EACH OTHERS HOUSES?

Do as much as you can through virtual means. Please carefully assess if the need is truly essential or urgent before physically going to help. As demonstrated in South Korea, one infected person can quickly turn into 1,000, so these measures are in place for the health of the whole community. Please reach out to supervisors, key spouses, and military life counselors if you have a need.

WILL HOUSING MAINTENANCE STILL BE AVAILABLE?

Only emergency maintenance will be available, for example if you have no heat or water. Still submit routine requests through the app, so when things are back to normal they can get to you quicker.

FOOD SERVICES

WHAT CHANGES ARE TAKING PLACE WITH THE COMMISSARY? WHO CAN SHOP THERE?

  • Retirees and VA card holders are only permitted to shop Tuesdays and Thursdays 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. They must check-in at the Visitor’s Center outside of Gate 1 (Randall Ave.) for pre-screening and a pass before proceeding onto base.

  • Active duty and dependents are not to shop Tuesdays and Thursdays 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. while retirees and VA card holders shop, to promote social distancing.

  • On Wednesday, March 19, all stores will begin 100% I.D. card checks at the entrance of the store and will revoke the visitor policy. Only patrons with a valid ID card or CAC card will be granted entrance to shop. This will reduce the number of people in our stores and help with social distancing, crowd control, etc.

  • On Thursday, March 19, we will eliminate "early bird" shopping hours to allow more time for cleaning and re-stocking of our stores.  That means the commissary will no longer open at 0700 for early bird shoppers. Instead, we will implement opening at the normal commissary hours. This means we open at 0900 Tuesday through Saturday and open at 1000 hrs. on Sunday.

WILL THE COMMISSARY START RESTRICTING PURCHASE LIMITS?

The commissary is restricting high-demand items to two items per shopper at this time.

WILL THE DFAC REMAIN OPEN?

The DFAC is restricted to meal card holders and mission essential personnel only. They are offering carry-out only.

AAFES CHANGES:

AAFES Food/Dining:  Carry out and drive thru only beginning Tuesday, 17 March 2020.

AAFES Express food items (roller grill) will be bagged and placed in the warmer so that customers are not using tongs to access food on the grill beginning Tuesday, 17 March 2020.

AFFES Express hours of operation change to 0600 – 2000 Monday through Saturday and 0700 – 1900 on Sunday starting 18 March.

 

CHILD CARE

WILL THE CDC AND YOUTH CENTER REMAIN OPEN?

The CDC and Youth Center has been restricted to children of mission essential personnel only.

WILL WE BE ABLE TO KEEP OUR SPOTS AT THE CDC IF WE ARE NOT ABLE TO BRING OUR CHILDREN?

Leadership is working toward keeping spots for those families pulling their children due to precautionary measures.

SERVICES

IS THE BARBER SHOP GOING TO CLOSE?

There are currently no plans to shut down the barber shop on base, but the hours posted are not necessarily the hours they will be open. Only a couple of people are working at a time, so it is a good idea to call ahead of time. It is understandable if hair is out of regs right now, but this is not permission to allow hair to get crazy.

WILL THE GYM STILL ALLOW 24/7 ACCESS?

The gyms are now closed. There are many services offering free workout streaming, so you can do workouts at home

CAN THE MANDATORY TA BRIEFING BE WAIVED, SO PEOPLE IN ISOLATION CAN ENROLL?

The education office is offering one-on-one TA briefings over the phone.

 

TRAVEL

*ALL TRAVEL IS RESTRICTED TO ESSENTIAL TRAVEL ONLY: to work, medical care, and shopping for essentials.

AM I ABLE TO TAKE LEAVE?

As directed by the Deputy Secretary of Defense, only local area leave is authorized until 11 May 2020, unless granted an exception by the first General Officer or Senior Executive Service member in the chain of command. This directive is necessary to limit the continuing spread of COVID-19. Local area leave is defined in AFI 36-3003 as the place where the member lives and from which he or she commutes to their duty station.

WHAT ABOUT PASSES?

Likewise, travel during regular or special pass is limited until 30 March 2020, when the policy will be re-evaluated. Regular pass periods are defined as beginning after normal working hours and ending before the beginning of normal working hours on the next working day, including weekend periods. Because all personnel may be required to respond to the installation on short notice for ongoing operations, public health evaluation or isolation protocols, members will be within one hour of their primary residence at all times during regular pass periods. This time response requirement may not be exceeded without express permission of the first commander in the member's chain of command for good cause. This restriction does not apply when seeking medical treatment.

FURTHER GUIDANCE FOR PREVENTING EXPOSURE:

During this national emergency, military members will restrict travel and exposure, to the maximum extent possible, to and from work and home, and to establishments supplying basic lifestyle needs (food, gas and water suppliers), while avoiding locations where 10 or more people can congregate that do not afford social distancing ROEs. If a member is a Person Under Investigation (PUI) or in a Restriction of Movement (ROM) status, adhere to the isolation requirements for the safety of the force. This cannot be taken lightly as this Pandemic has the potential to change the landscape of the country and the viability of our strategic forces. It starts with each individual taking responsibility for their own behaviors.

HOW ABOUT FOR NON-ACTIVE DUTY MEMBERS WHO LIVE AND WORK ON BASE?

For DoD civilian employees, contractor personnel and family members, it is strongly recommended you restrict travel in the local area and follow DoD travel guidance.  If you fail to do so and end up traveling outside the one hour radius from your primary residence, you are not permitted entry back onto our installation until cleared by our Public Health personnel.   You must contact our Public Health office at 307-773-3040 and follow their direction.  We will follow the DoD Force Health Guidance memo, which directs that civilian employees and contractors should be restricted from the workplace for 14 days after returning from overseas travel.  You do not get to return until you are cleared. 

WHAT DOES SIX-RING RECALL MEAN?

You will report to your duty section as normal, you must be able to answer your phone within six rings, you must be able to report for duty within two hours of notification to report for duty, and there will be zero alcohol consumption while on six ring recall.

*Note 6 ring recall has been lifted at this time. Those identified for disciplined self-isolation and social distancing roles know who they are and what is expected of them.

I AM CURRENTLY TDY AT AN IMPACTED LOCATION TDY, DO I RETURN TO MY HOME STATION?

(As of 16 March 2020) No, remain in place. See Part I, para 3 of “Stop Movement and Concurrent Guidance Related to Travel Restrictions Due to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)”.

Airmen projected TDY or Leave to a Stop Movement location will not proceed. Airmen currently at a TDY location impacted by Stop Movement will remain in-place until further guidance or Stop Movement is terminated. Airmen enroute will be contacted by their chain of command for instructions. Airmen currently on leave at an impacted Stop Movement country will remain in-place and will be contacted by their chain of command for further guidance. Upon member returning to home station, leave dates will be adjusted accordingly.

If you are on official travel to non-Level 3 designated locations, see Part III of “Stop Movement and Concurrent Guidance Related to Travel Restrictions Due to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)”,

I AM SCHEDULED TO PCS SOON, HOW AM I IMPACTED?

All PCS moves are postponed until May 11. This date could be pushed back. Check with your chain of command and MPF to see if and how it impacts you. If you are in flux during your PCS, work with your Chain of Command, CSS, UDM, MPF and TMO to ensure you and your family have a place to stay.

WHAT ABOUT INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE HAD THEIR HOUSEHOLD GOODS PICKED UP, BUT HAVEN’T DEPARTED THEIR LOCATION?

(As of 13 March 2020) Each situation is different. Contact your shipping office to determine your shipment is still in the local area and whether or not you may have access to it.

I’VE ALREADY DROPPED MY POV OFF, BUT MY PCS HAS BEEN DELAYED. CAN I GET MY CAR BACK?

(As of 13 March 2020) If you’re interested in retrieving your vehicle, contact the VPC immediately. VPCs are postured to assist customers with changing appointments, vehicle retrieval, and answering any other POV-related questions you have.

I AM SCHEDULED TO GO ON A DEPLOYMENT. WILL MY DEPLOYMENT BE CANCELLED? WHAT SHOULD I DO, WHO SHOULD I CONTACT?

(As of 16 March 2020) Stay in touch with your deployed and home station unit leadership, and make sure they know how best to reach you.
