COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance (Released 4 Jan. 2022)

Public Notice: Installation transitions to Health Protection Condition Bravo, effective Aug. 1

MCIEAST installations, to include Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River, have transitioned to HPCON Bravo. The CDC has classified Onslow and Craven Counties in North Carolina as high community transmission level for the COVID-19 virus. Although this COVID variant is not imposing the significant strain on medical capacity that past variants have, it is highly contagious, and continues to spread at a concerning rate. Symptoms associated with this new strain include: fatigue, muscle ache, severe sore throat, and persistent cough. A majority of cases seem to have no fever (only 25%), but do have the potential for possible increase in the loss of smell. All personnel, units and activities are reminded to observe the Individual and unit level protective measures that have proven effective in slowing the spread and mitigating its worse potential effects.

  • Stay at home if you are sick.
  • Seek early COVID testing if you have symptoms.
  • Adhere to established DoD isolation and quarantine protocols.
  • Vaccines and boosters remain available at Naval medical facilities and at drug stores within local communities.
  • Increase distancing between personnel in classroom settings and other indoor gatherings.
  • All personnel, especially high-risk individuals, are strongly encouraged to wear masks in indoor and close congregate settings.
  • Mask wear is required in all medical and dental facilities.

Unit commanders may employ additional mitigation measures required to meet mission requirements, including:

  • Employment of telework
  • Limiting occupancy of common areas.
  • Mask wear indoors (e.g. classrooms) or where social distancing cannot be maintained.

All mess halls have been converted to full service, including the salad bar, beverage bar, pastry bar and convenience lines. There may be limited selections and variety of items available. Personnel should anticipate longer wait times; however, extended hours of operation will be in place at all mess halls. Seating will be reduced and spacing of tables will be increased as well as outside dining in some areas. The availability of to-go meals remains an alternative to dining at the mess hall.

Active duty personnel may walk-in to receive their COVID-19 vaccine and/or booster at the following locations:

  • Tuesdays:  MCB Camp Lejeune, Building 15, Holcomb Blvd, 8:30 - 10:00 a.m.
  • Wednesdays:  Camp Geiger Branch Medical Clinic, 775 E Street, 8:30 - 10:00 a.m.

TRICARE Beneficiaries can schedule a vaccine and/or booster appointment online at https://informatics-stage.health.mil/covax/.

All hands adherence to the above protective measures will help mitigate the spread of the virus. Continued case transmission could potentially lead to degraded services and medical capacity, and may necessitate more deliberate mitigation protocols.
