COVID19 and Quarantine Resources

Reporting procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic require extra precautions to ensure the well-being and readiness of the force. When you sign in at the Ivy Replacement Center staff duty desk (building 1456, 719-526-6961), the staff duty NCOs will assess your quarantine requirements based on the most up-to-date Fort Carson Travel and Leave Business Rules/Hot Spots. For unaccompanied sergeants and below, your gaining unit will facilitate quarantine requirements in their barracks. For accompanied Soldiers (with dependents) and staff sergeants and above, you will self-quarantine as required by the updated guidelines and in accordance with the Fort Carson and 4ID Commanding General Order for Quarantine.

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.

In-Processing

All inbound Soldiers, colonel and below, must sign in at the Replacement Center CQ, building 1456, located at 1783 Nelson Blvd., Fort Carson, Colorado, 80913.

In-processing: Report to building 1456 and sign in with the CQ desk. Be sure that you have a copy of your DA31 and orders in hand.

If reporting during duty hours, Soldiers must be in uniform. Soldiers are authorized to report in civilian clothes after 1500 and on weekends; however, you must be clean shaven and in accordance with AR 670-1.

Transportation to Replacement Detachment: Soldiers arriving to the Colorado Springs Airport are to use local transportation, such as ride shares or taxis. Soldiers will be reimbursed for local transportation costs on Day Zero once they meet with finance personnel. Receipts are not required for expenses under $75.
