Frequently Asked Questions

Am I allowed to visit a service member training at Fort Lee?

Guest/family attendance at graduation ceremonies is now permitted; however, there is a 50-person limit whether the event is held indoors or outdoors. Guests at graduations are considered official visitors and must attest vaccination on DD Form 3150 or provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test NLT 72 hours prior to the visit.

Guests will not be permitted to interact with students at ceremonies because the potential for spreading COVID still exists. Training units will provide further instruction as to where and when visitation can occur after the ceremony, if permitted.

Unit leaders have been given the authority to establish pick-up locations away from the main body of students if a family is providing transportation for a Soldier taking leave.

Other family visits with students still enrolled in AIT courses at Fort Lee remains prohibited. Questions regarding applicability of this policy to a specific service member should be addressed to their chain of command.

Have off-post privileges been reinstated for initial military training personnel?

General Order No. 1, as of March 4, 2022, gives school commandants/presidents the authority to approve off-post activities for Initial Military Training personnel, which includes AIT students. Sister service requests will be routed through the CASCOM Chief of Staff for CASCOM Commanding General approval.

Do I need to wear a mask on Fort Lee?

Masks are not required for individuals who have been fully vaccinated; however, a 100-percent masking requirement is still in effect for all medical facilities on post. Individuals who have not been vaccinated are required to wear a mask in all administrative/customer service areas and outdoor settings where they will be in close proximity to other individuals. This mask requirement does not apply to military family housing.

Off post, personnel will continue to observe CDC guidance and state law regarding areas where masks should be worn, including within airports.

Does the lowering of mitigation measures also mean leave/travel restrictions have changed?

Not entirely. As of June 15, 2021, fully vaccinated Soldiers are the only population that have returned to the normal leave request process outlined in AR 600-8-10 and command policy. Unvaccinated service members are at higher risk for contracting the virus; therefore, they still need company commander approval for travel within 180 miles; battalion commander approval for travel between 180-300 miles; and brigade commander approval for over 300 miles.

Anyone traveling to or from a foreign country should expect proof of vaccination requirements and a restriction of movement or quarantine period. Testing for COVID exposure 3-5 days before departure or upon return to the U.S. also is mandatory. The recently published General Order goes into greater detail, and individuals planning travel outside of the U.S. are expected to review and be ready to comply with the requirements.

What is 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and what are the symptoms?

COVID-19, is a respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, in 2019. It was declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020. Reported symptoms include mild-to-severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and shortness of breath. In a high number of cases, the infected individual loses his or her sense of taste and smell. The virus attacks the lungs in humans. (Note: a pandemic is an outbreak that's spread out over several countries, an epidemic effects a limited geographical area.

How can Soldiers, family members and DA Civilians protect themselves?

All personnel should adhere to CDC guidelines on the preventing the spread of respiratory viruses like the flu and COVID-19. Prevention guidelines include:

  1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick and stay at home if you are ill. Coordinate with your commander/supervisor for sick leave.
  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  3. Cover your cough or sneeze and throw tissue in trash when done.
  4. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds each time, especially after going to the bathroom, before and after eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched items or surfaces using household spray or wipes.
  6. Following CDC guidance, community leaders are requiring unvaccinated individuals to wear cloth face coverings in public settings where social distancing measures cannot be maintained. Military personnel, DOD Civilians, contractors, retirees, family members and all other visitors to Fort Lee are required to follow guidelines on the use of face coverings per General Order 1. Instructions for creating homemade face masks and caring for them with regular cleaning is included in the links on this COVID-19 portal.

Has there been any change to the reporting procedures and quarantine requirements if someone suspects they have contracted COVID-19?

The procedure for reporting remains the same. Those experiencing symptoms should STAY HOME and contact their primary health care provider for instructions. Kenner beneficiaries can set up a COVID test appointment through Tricare Online ( or by calling the appointment line at 1-866-533-5242, option 1. Unvaccinated individuals who believe they have been exposed to COVID-19 will be instructed to quarantine. Vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine unless they are exhibiting symptoms of the virus. Individuals receiving the vaccine should note they are not considered immune to the disease until 14 days after their final shot.

What happens if I test positive for COVID-19?

According to the CDC, those who are ill with COVID-19 but not sick enough to be hospitalized should follow CDC guidance on how to reduce the risk of spreading their illness to others through isolation (avoidance of ALL human contact)

People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to self-isolate at home. This means separating oneself from ALL individuals in the dwelling. If this is not possible, Fort Lee has set aside barracks space for this purpose. Civilian employees and service members must ensure they keep their supervisors/chain of command informed and receive guidance/assistance from them.

Others who are more seriously ill may require hospitalization. Severe illness may develop into pneumonia and can be fatal. "Recovery" from COVID-19 is typically verified by two lab tests with negative results conducted 24 hours apart.

What is quarantine and what does it mean to be placed in quarantine?

Quarantine is when individuals or groups of individuals have been exposed to COVID-19 but are not yet ill. Quarantine involves separation from those who are healthy to prevent the spread of the virus.

What is isolation and what does it mean if you are placed in isolation?

Isolation is when an individual, or group of individuals are separated from healthy individuals to prevent the spread of a communicable disease. Individuals are selected for separation if they are infected or reasonably believed to be infected by COVID-19.

Is a person released from isolation/quarantine a risk to others?

No. They do not pose a risk to others. The medical provider releases someone only after he/she meets the criteria of being free from fever and all other symptoms and they must have negative results from two consecutive lab tests conducted at least 24 hours apart.

How does the virus spread?

Person-to-person transmission is believed to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza viruses and other respiratory pathogens spread.

There is evidence that suggests a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes. This is another reason why face coverings are proving effective, serving as a hinderance to instinctive face touching.

The COVID-19 virus is not stable in the environment, limiting the ability to survive and spread on surfaces. Therefore, precaution should be taken with frequently touched objects like shopping carts, fixtures in public restrooms, door handles in public buildings, etc. Frequent cleaning of these areas will lower the risk, but the best safeguard is handwashing with soap and water or hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol after touching high-contact surfaces.

What is the best way to clean areas to prevent COVID-19?

Clean all “high-touch” surfaces, such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, etc. Use a household cleaning spray or wipe, according to the label instructions. Wash laundry thoroughly, to include jackets and coats. An important safety precaution is to avoid combining cleaning chemicals such as bleach and ammonia or rubbing alcohol as they can create toxic fumes that are potentially deadly. There is much more information on the CDC website.

How many have tested positive for COVID-19 at Fort Lee?

Only the Department of Defense or service branches will release numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases. Numbers of people in isolation, quarantine or possibly infected will not be released.
