Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Information
Base and station leaders are continuing to monitor the Coronavirus outbreak and working closely with Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune and public health officials to mitigate health risks and ensure the safety of our installation population. While we will share information as it becomes available, please stay tuned to information about the virus on the Center for Disease Control’s website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
. The following is a statement issued by NMCCL:
“The safety of our service members, their family members, and our civilian employees remains the utmost concern.
There are no known cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) at Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune. Our medical professionals at NMCCL will continue to monitor the situation and stand ready to assist our active-duty, civilians and families as needed.
NMCCL is working closely with medical providers across Marine Corps Installations East, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Marine Forces Special Operations Command and the Onslow County Health Department to ensure all appropriate measures are taken to prevent potential spread.
All military personnel are encouraged to follow guidance from military medical authorities and the CDC. Civilian employees, dependents and retirees should also follow CDC guidance.
All personnel are reminded that it is influenza (flu) season, and there are many circulating cold and flu-like upper respiratory infections. The best way to reduce your risk of getting the flu or other infections is to practice good hygiene. Thoroughly wash your hands using soap and water; use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; cover your mouth while sneezing or coughing; avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces; and avoid close contact with those who are sick.”

Visitor's Center to Close Weekends, Starting Dec. 7
Beginning Dec. 7, the visitor’s center will no longer be open on weekends or holidays. The hours are being changed to provide better customer service to the community during the week when the majority of customers require assistance. Wait times during the week will significantly decrease with more personnel to assist customers. The weekday hours of operation will remain 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
To access the installation on a weekend or holiday, DoD ID card holders are advised to use the Trusted Traveler program, where any DoD ID card holder can escort a guest using their vehicle or with the guest traveling in immediate succession. Using Trusted Traveler requires the DoD ID card holder to remain with their guest at all times while on the installation.
Authorized personnel who wish to obtain a guest pass over the weekend, must go to the visitor’s center during normal hours in advance of their guest's arrival, and provide copies of the following documentation for each guest:
- Government-issued identification card
- Valid vehicle registration, if driving
- Proof of liability insurance, if driving
Sponsors need to also provide the guest's date of birth and social security number. Guests will need to provide original documentation upon arrival to obtain their visitor pass.
Once a successful background check is completed, the sponsor and guest can pick up their pass from the sentry at the main gate on Holcomb Blvd. on a weekend or holiday.
For questions about obtaining a visitor’s pass in advance, please call the visitor’s center at 910-451-7734/3220 during normal working hours. For questions regarding base access for DoDEA, MCCS, command or other events, please call or email the visitor's center at email@example.com.
Traffic Advisory: Sneads Ferry Road Project Update
Beginning Dec. 3, the final culvert repair will begin and McHugh Blvd. will be open as a detour route to access the main side of Camp Lejeune. Drivers will no longer be required to use Highway 172 and Lyman Road as an alternate route. Signage will be in place to direct traffic to the alternate route. This project is expected to be completed on Jan. 10, 2020.
The Sneads Ferry Road Project will replace culverts at three separate locations along the road. Only one work site will be active at a time, with the road closing 250 feet before and after the project work site. During this project, no through traffic will be allowed on Sneads Ferry Road between Marines Road and Lyman Road. All privately owned vehicles will be detoured using Highway 172 and Lyman Road.
