The Commissary will operate Mon-Fri 0900-2100, Saturday 0800-2000 and Sunday 0900-1900. For the latest, up-to-date information on what DeCA is doing during this time, visit their website here.

Effective Friday, April 17, face coverings are required for entry into the ID Card Facility.

The Fort Belvoir ID Card Facility will continue to operate under regular hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.) by appointment ONLY. To minimize the number of non-essential required visits, the following guidance is in effect through September 30, 2020:

Common Access Cards (CAC)

-The Defense Department has changed the process to allow service members and civilians to temporarily extend the life of their cards. These extended cards that appear expired on their face can continue to be used for access to benefits, including health care and entry to installations and buildings and to systems and networks. Common Access Cards, known as CACs, that expire on or after April 16, 2020, and are within 30 days of expiration can have the certificates updated online using ID Card Office Online to allow for continued use for logical access through Sept. 30. Individuals must extend their certificates before the printed expiration date on their CAC.

- CAC transactions will be limited to initial issuance.
- CACs will not be reissued due to printed information changes (e.g., promotions, name changes).
- The policy memorandum, allowing transferring DoD civilian employees to retain their CAC, will be reissued
- Guidance on downloading certificates to extend validity of current CAC is due to be issued by DoD the week of April 13th

Uniformed Services ID Cards (USID) such as Dependent and Retiree cards

- If a cardholder's affiliation is unchanged, USID cards which expired on or after January 1, 2020, are authorized for continued benefit use through September 30, 2020.
- Termination of cardholder affiliation with the DoD or termination of benefit eligibility will be verified electronically prior to confiscating an expired USID card with an expiration date on or after January 1, 2020.
- The minimum age for initial USID card issuance is increased from 10 to 14 years.
- Continued use of the Reserve USID card to obtain active duty benefits is authorized for mobilized Reservists and their eligible dependents.

Additional actions
- Replace lost CAC or ID Cards.
- Initial DEERS enrollment.
-Pin resets of an emergency nature are the only service that will be seen without an appointment. All other services, to include lost cards, require an appointment at this facility. There are other facilities within the NCR that may not require appointments.

Additional information on CAC and USID card issuance and renewal changes is available at www.CAC.mil/coronavirus.

1. Do you have a fever, or cough, or shortness of breath?

2. Have you been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or have traveled overseas?
