HPCON-Charlie-Orange.jpg

WHAT IS HPCON?

The Department of Defense Instruction (DoDI) 6200.03 “Public Health Emergency Management Within the DoD,”and supplements, provides military commanders with policy applicable to theCOVID-19 outbreak. Commanders review and update the health protection condition(HPCON) based on the risk level in the local community and in cooperation with local, state, or host nation guidance.

Commanders and public health personnel use HPCON levels to guide specific actions you can take in response to a health threat. While it’s always important to prevent the spread of germs, there are additional steps you can take if COVID-19 transmission becomes more widespread in your community. This site lists potential actions that may be indicated as a result of COVID-19.Regardless of the current HPCON level, always follow the guidance from your installation and local public health agencies.

Take the following actions to protect the health and safety of your Family and your community.


Take everyday actions to stop the spread of germs:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash; cough/sneeze into your elbow if tissues are unavailable.

GOOD TO KNOW

Established in October, 1941, United States Army Garrison Fort Gordon, formerly known as Camp Gordon, was named after Democrat Governor and two term Georgia Senator John Brown Gordon.  The installation is home to U.S. Army Cyber Command, U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence, U.S. Army Signal Corps and U.S. Army Cyber Corps.  Other Commands and Partners include Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Command, Southern Regional Dental and Veterinary Commands, 7th Signal Command, Naval Information Operations Command, Joint Strategic Intelligence Operation, Communications and Military Intelligence units, Army Reserve/National Guard Training, U.S.A.F. Air Reserve heavy-drop training and Homeland Security Training. 
 

Garrisons, are also called an installation or post and are communities that provide many of the same types of services expected from any town to include: law enforcement, fire protection, sports and recreational facilities, religious activities, shopping and entertainment and child, youth and teen programs.
 

The Garrison command team and staff perform operational support to enable mission readiness and provide an enhanced quality of life for service members, retirees, veterans, their families and the civilians of Fort Gordon and Gillem Enclave. 
 

Gillem Enclave opened 1941 as Atlanta Army Depot and is located near Atlanta.  In 1973, it was renamed Fort Gillem in memory of WWI, Major General Alvan Gillem Jr., who began his military career at then, near-by Fort McPherson.  As part of the 2011 implementation of BRAC, Fort Gillem, became a satellite location of Fort Gordon and was renamed, Gillem Enclave. It is the site of 3rd Medical Command, Defense Forensic Science Center and the Military Entrance Processing Station.
 

Our Vision is to become the premier multi-mission, multi-service military installation in the Army.
