APG and COVID 19

In an effort to keep you all informed about what is happening at APG concerning COVID-19 the Daily APG COVID-19 Update for 2 April 2020 from APG Senior Mission Commander MG Kilgo is posted below along with additional important information at the next page titled "Useful COVID-19 Information".

Subject: ★★ Daily APG COVID-19 update – 2 April

Team APG,

Below please find COVID-19 announcements and updates for Thursday, 2 April.  The APG and Adelphi HPCON levels remain at CHARLIE.

Installation Access:  Beginning tomorrow, Friday, 3 April, only the following people may enter the installation:

-Retirees and dependents
-Active-duty military and dependents
-Army Reserve and National Guard members on official orders who reside off-post
-Residents:  those identified on a lease with Corvias or FMWR Rec Lodging
-Essential services providers:  AAFES, Commissary, and custodial teams already identified
-DOD ID card holders (Benefits Card) and Gold Star Families
-DOD civilians and contractors entered in the Automated Installation Entry (AIE) system
-Non-DOD contractors for extended-use lease and construction sites
-IHG customers

Non-residents and off-post medical care providers who offer essential care to APG residents must be sure to declare themselves to security guards at the gate and give their reason for entering.  Residents should carry a copy of their lease or bill in case they do not show up in AIE.  Have your appointment slip or email with you if you have an appointment at the Kirk Army Health Clinic or CAC office.  The key and essential list applies to those who have access to APG only for work purposes.  Essential delivery and service operations will continue and be managed separately from the above categories.  All others must stay home to comply with Governor Hogan’s stay-at-home declaration. 

You may be asked questions when trying to enter APG, so simply declare yourself, your status, and why you are coming on post.  Please remain courteous and professional to our DES teammates who keep our installation safe.  To watch a video message from the Garrison commander explaining these changes, please visit https://www.facebook.com/238070186283/videos/1998111070323448/.

APG Police:  APG Police are no longer taking face-to-face reports.  To file a police report, please call the dispatch office at 410-306-0550.  All reports will be done telephonically.  If an officer needs to respond to a location, he or she will ensure proper social distancing.  Additionally, officers are still conducting traffic stops for violations.  All APG traffic laws remain in effect.  To request a police report, email usarmy.apg.asc.list.apg-police-admin@mail.mil.  They will send you a formal request form.

VPN:  Now that we have increased the VPN bandwidth and connections have been completed and stable for several days, please use the VPN as much as possible.  This will help us ensure that all computers are being properly scanned and updated for security purposes.

Mental Health:  During this time of increased stress and uncertainty, it’s important to find time to relax and recharge.  Increased anxiety can lead to lowered immunity.  The apps below can help increase relaxation and sleep and are free from the National Center for Telehealth and Technology.

-Breathe2Relax teaches the skill of using your own breathing process to slow down for a few minutes, giving yourself time to regroup.
-DreamEZ uses visualization to focus thoughts on a singular process or point in time, which aids in "turning your brain down" so you can get to sleep.

Additionally, it’s important to check in with ourselves and our family support systems.  Attached are some resources to self-evaluate as leaders and to find ways to talk to children and teens about the coronavirus.

For COVID-19 resources and information, please visit https://www.army.mil/coronavirus/.  You can also call the Army's 24-7 COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-984-8523, overseas DSN 312-421-3700.

To quote AMC Commander GEN Perna, “Your impact is not measured by your proximity to the fight,” whether that's combat operations or killing the virus.  Thank you for all you do - you are making a difference!

Sincerely,
MG Kilgo
