To comply with a recent policy change directed by the Department of Defense, the Maneuver Center of Excellence and Fort Benning is joining other military installations and will no longer post numbers of positive cases of COVID-19. The MCoE leaders want all members of the community to understand this change and remain confident that we will continue to communicate transparently with you, and in full cooperation with local health officials. When we do have positive cases, we will immediately initiate tracing interviews and notify anyone who has been in contact. The leadership team will coordinate extensive sanitizing and cleaning of the areas that personnel may have worked or visited. The numbers of those effected by COVID-19 will be reported both through the Army or respective military services chain of command and represented in the daily update provided by DoD, as well as in statistics reported by local health officials.

The number one priority is the health & safety of our community. You can be assured we are taking proactive measures to protect our force. Remember, our best defense is to stay home if able, practice social distancing and wash your hands. We ask that you help squelch rumors. We are in the middle of a Public Health Emergency. This can affect anyone. It's important to stay calm, help each other & tend to those who may be in quarantine or isolation. We are in this together. One Force, One Fight.
