We apologize for the inconvenience but the current pandemic has changed the way that Fort Knox conducts in-processing procedures maximizing physical distancing and teleworking.  We are working to keep you, your family and our staff safe.  Upon arrival to Fort Knox, all incoming personnel will report directly to Building 501, on Spearhead Division Ave, to be screened by Fort Knox Public Health and the staff.  Building 501 is open 24 hours and the contact number is (502) 624-5512.

Please read all attachments listed below for guidance on in-processing procedures.

As you in-process, please annotate any issues you may have or improvements we can make to the process.  Provide those comments to the Fort Knox Emergency Operations Center (EOC) so that we may streamline the process for future incoming personnel.  The EOC can be reached at usarmy.knox.imcom-atlantic.mbx.ioc-watch-ofcr@mail.mil or 502-624-4651, 3132 or 5151.

If you are currently experiencing symptoms and have concerns that you may have been exposed to COVID-19, please call 1-800-493-9602.

Thank you for your time and welcome to Fort Knox, Kentucky.
