COVID-19 and Quarantine Resources

Reporting to Fort Carson
Fort Carson is unrestricted and complying with HPCON B+ measures. The Fort Carson Replacement Center Staff Duty remains operational to receive Soldiers reporting to Fort Carson. Upon arrival, Soldiers will be appropriately screened to ensure they do not meet criteria for exposure for COVID-19. Given that Soldiers do not meet criteria, Soldiers will provide administrative documentation that includes a copy of their orders and DA 31 to complete reporting process. In regards to housing, Replacement Staff Duty will coordinate with gaining brigade to identify barracks space for single Soldiers. Soldiers with Families are encouraged to research housing options on post and off-post prior to arriving to Fort Carson. Call Replacement Staff Duty at 719-526- 6961 for more information.

Reporting from a restricted location
Effective Jan. 25, service members and their dependents conducting PCS to Fort Carson are no longer required to exercise a Restriction of Movement upon arrival. Quarantine procedures are still required for anyone who comes in “close contact” with a COVID positive person. Commanders at all echelons retain the authority to direct ROM on a case-by-case basis for personnel given specific conditions associated with individual travel.

Reporting from MEPS
Upon arrival, Soldiers will provide all necessary documentation to Replacement Center in order for process to get started. Fort Carson Replacement Center will provide MEPS documentation to MPD in order for Soldiers under MEPS status to in-process. DMPO is responsible for conducting accessions for MEPS Soldiers in order to start Soldier’s pay. Call Replacement Staff Duty at 719-526-6961 for more information.

Please take time to familiarize yourself with the resources on the Fort Carson COVID-19 information section. The resources provided are updated as conditions change. The Ivy Replacement Center staff duty (building 1456, 719-526-6961) is also available to assist you in finding the latest guidance.

We understand that travel during the COVID-19 pandemic can create additional hardship and appreciate your understanding. For financial hardships, contact the Fort Carson Army Emergency Relief at 719-526-4783.
