Public Notice: TheRoad Ahead for Installations

O


           Safely supporting our Warfighters, Families and the Workforce in the era of COVID-19

Our Public Health Emergency Officers are reporting our installations and the State of NC have met several critical benchmarks that indicate it is safe to allow a phased return of services and businesses that were previously closed. These benchmarks include: 1) a downward trajectory of COVID-like cases over past 14 days, 2) a downward trajectory of positive cases as a percentage of total tests over the past 14 days, 3) the adequate capacity of our health facilities to treat acutely ill patients requiring hospitalization, and 4) an adequate COVID testing capacity to rapidly detect new cases. We have met these benchmarks and now it is time to restore services and bring our force back to work.
With this in mind, I am confident we can continue to bring back more of our installation workforce to better support our mission of training warriors and taking care of families. While the numbers currently show positive trends, in these uncertain times, I want to do it slowly, safely and smartly.  
Since the outbreak began, we’ve done an outstanding job of sustaining essential services and providing critical support so that our tenant commands can sustain operations. The MEF and tenant commands are still conducting their missions; Marines and Sailors from II MEF are deploying in support of global operations as well as the COVID response mission in the Northeast, and TECOM units continue to train Marines and sustain the entry level pipeline. Our bases and stations have provided critical support throughout and will continue to do so as we move forward.
Now it is time to expand capacity and restore non-essential services. Last week, our team at Marine Corps Community Services started gradually opening our fitness centers, outdoor recreational facilities, and mental health services by limiting capacity, mandating face coverings and social distancing, and ensuring venues were thoroughly cleaned during the day. Many of our administrative and dining facilities have been able to continue to serve customers using similar measures to mitigate the threat of this pandemic. Our hospital is implementing a phased reopening and will start to accept appointments for outpatient services on a limited basis.  Our Child Development Centers will gradually expand capacity as health conditions and staffing permit. As we seek to expand more services, we will take a measured approach, adhering to state and federal guidelines and remain in close consultation with our Public Health Emergency Officers.  
Ultimately, my top priority is to steadily return to normal operations to enable our tenant commands to conduct their missions while keeping our people safe. That means we must redouble our efforts to minimize risk while maximizing opportunities to train and conduct business aboard the base.  To that end during phase one, employees not designated as mission critical that are defined by CDC guidance for COVID-19 as high risk are not expected or required to return to work at this time. Office spaces and customer service areas at every one of our facilities must be in strict compliance with COVID-19 mitigation measures to prevent further spread of the virus; that means maintaining six feet of social distancing, frequently washing hands, wiping down surfaces, and wearing face coverings if social distancing cannot be maintained. This is a shared responsibility we must all take seriously. I urge each and every one of you to think creatively and aggressively for more preventative ways to keep us healthy and safe—set up virtual meetings, reduce touch points or use tape to maintain distancing.  If we aren’t careful, disciplined, and vigilant, we could find ourselves experiencing an outbreak which would sabotage the progress we’ve already made. 
This has been a challenging, uphill climb for the past couple of months, but we have learned a great deal about what we need to do to combat this virus. We have worked hard to get to this point and I am confident that if we continue to practice healthy habits across our installations and never let our guard down, we will prevail. Our installations are safe places to train because of the vigilance and dedication of our work force. I thank you again for your patience and teamwork.

Public Notice: Installations implementing Corps’ suspension of Trusted Traveler Program; Drivers and passengers required to show credentials effective April 25

In accordance with a directive from Headquarters Marine Corps (MARADMIN 262/20), the Trusted Traveler Program will be suspended effective Saturday, April 25, until further notice. All personnel--drivers and passengers--will be required to present a DoD identification card or credential (DBIDS or visitor pass) to the sentry for validation when entering MCB Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. Marine Corps made the decision to temporarily suspend the use of the Trusted Traveler Program which authorized DoD personnel to escort guests onto an installation without requiring them to have a visitor pass.

Authorized DoD personnel must now request installation access for their visitors either through email or at the installation’s Visitor Center. The MCB Camp Lejeune Visitor Center is located adjacent the Wilson Gate on Wilson Blvd. and the MCAS New River Visitor Center is located adjacent the Main Gate on Curtis Rd.

MCB Camp Lejeune Visitor Center
Bldg. TT-13
Monday through Friday
5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Closed on weekends and holidays

MCAS New River Visitor Center
Bldg. AS-187
Monday through Friday
7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Closed on weekends and holidays

When the Visitor Centers are closed, proceed to the Camp Lejeune Holcomb Gate or the MCAS New River Main Gate, where you will be directed to pull over and stay in your vehicle while officers collect your paperwork and process the visitor pass. Expect delays.

For information on obtaining a visitor pass to MCB Camp Lejeune, please visit https://www.lejeune.marines.mil/Base-Access/Sponsored-Visitor-Form/.

To obtain a visitor pass for MCAS New River Visitor Center, please stop by the visitor’s center or call 910-449-5513.

There is no change to the access policy for contractors and vendors accessing the installation. Contractors and vendors should continue to use the Contractor Vetting Office to gain access. Please visit https://www.lejeune.marines.mil/Base-Access/Contractors/ for more information.

Public Notice: Order issued requiring cloth face coverings for air station and base activities

BY ORDER OF THE COMMANDING GENERAL, MCIEAST-MCB CAMP LEJEUNE: Effective at 8 a.m., Friday, April 10, all individuals aboard MCIEAST installations will carry a face covering when entering any air station or base activity.  Wear appropriate face covering to conduct business during occasions where you cannot maintain at least six feet of social distancing.

Examples of activities include: the Commissary, MCX, PMO, Contractor Vetting Office, Visitor Center, IPAC, Postal, Mess Halls, Marine Marts, and Barber Shops etc.

Face coverings will be required during any activity or service where the CDC recommended 6-feet of social distancing cannot be applied.  Examples include: financial transactions, signing of documents, getting a haircut, serving/receiving food, exchanging supplies, etc.

Examples of appropriate face covering include, scarves, neck gaiters, and non-medical masks.  All uniformed personnel will adhere to specific colors for face coverings to include: plain white, black, tan, olive green, blue, or MARPAT.  All non-uniformed personnel will adhere to the wearing of a face covering without restriction of color or style.


Public Notice: MCIEAST implements Health Protection Condition Charlie at direction of SECDEF

As directed by the Secretary of Defense, Marine Corps Installations East (MCIEAST) has implemented Health Protection Condition Charlie (HPCON-C) across all of its installations to maintain the readiness and protection of base and air station personnel and families.

HPCON-C means there are multiple confirmed cases of a disease nationwide such as the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). As of today, there have been FOUR confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Onslow County. The County Health Department says one of those cases is travel-related; the other two cases are speculated to be from community transmission. The ONE confirmed case of COVID-19 aboard Camp Lejeune has recovered and been medically cleared. While there is no indication of widespread outbreak in Onslow County, community transmission has been seen in greater numbers in other counties in North Carolina to include Durham, Mecklenburg, and Wake Counties.

As a preventative measure, MCIEAST previously implemented many of the HPCON-C health and safety requirements during HPCON-B, as a result the base population will notice very few visible changes. Leaders will continue to assess conditions on the ground and cancel or curtail services, events and operations as appropriate that could potentially increase the spread of the virus. A list of updates on services can be found here: www.mcieast.marines.mil/servicesupdate.

MCIEAST personnel along with Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune (NMCCL) are working diligently to review best practices, hone plans and remain prepared should there be a need to increase to the next level of HPCON.
