Latest Announcements

COVID-19 Mitigation Measures aboard MCLB Albany

Due to the substantial spread of COVID-19 throughout the local community, we have implemented the following risk mitigation strategies to protect our personnel and their families effective immediately.

  • Daniels Fitness Center/HITT Facility is open to active-duty personnel and first responders only. 
  • The number of patrons that can utilize the Marine Corps Exchange and Commissary is limited to a maximum of 25 at one time per facility.

For more information, please call Marine Corps Community Services at 229-639-5234 and Commissary at 229-435-1721.

Effective until further notice, to comply with the Health Protection Measure to limit access to the installation to the maximum extent possible, Marine Corps Police Department will not issue day passes. For more information, please call MCPD Desk Sergeant at 229-639-5132 or 229-639-9108.

Mandatory Face Coverings

A mandatory use of cloth face coverings/masks must be adhered to by all personnel aboard the installation. Military personnel, civilians, their family members and Department of Defense contractors are strongly encouraged to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines on the use of cloth face coverings/masks in public settings. The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings or masks in public settings where other social-distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. You can find the U.S. Surgeon General’s latest updates on COVID-19 here: https://www.hhs.gov/surgeongeneral/index.html.  Specifically, face coverings or a mask will be worn on base in all areas where people may pass each other and/or work together.  If you work alone, such as in an office, you can remove the face covering/mask but once you leave it must be worn until you leave the building.  You are not required to wear these in your POV and continue to adhere to the following CDC guidance:

  • Wash your hands often for 20 seconds
  • Social-distancing
  • Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Blow your nose, cough or sneeze into a tissue and throw it away

You can find the latest CDC guidance here: https://www.coronavirus.gov/.

The Department will continue to implement force protective measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 to our total force and their families, and the American people. The latest DOD policies can be found at https: //www.defense.gov/Explore/Spotlight/Coronavirus.

Navy Marine Corps Relief Society Assistance

The Navy Marine Corps Relief Society could be an option that can help during these unprecedented times. NMCRS offers assist loans of up to $500 or other interest-free loans to aid in specific issues. Call 229-639-8444 or 702-822-0277 to schedule a meeting -- required documents will be needed. This is confidential.

Naval Branch Health Clinic Albany Acute – Care Services Only

Naval Branch Health Clinic Albany will provide acute - care services only, on a case-by-case basis, to active-duty personnel only -- using uniformed personnel at the clinic deemed mission essential. The clinic's pharmacy will remain open on a limited basis, although wait times will increase, given very limited staffing. The clinic will continue to perform rapid flu tests and rapid strep tests for active duty and their family members, and continue collecting COVID-19 (coronavirus) test samples for active duty and their family members when medically indicated. Family members and retirees can use the TRICARE network for urgent care, without a referral.  Learn more at:  www.tricare.mil/CoveredServices/IsItCovered/UrgentCare.

All TRICARE beneficiaries can contact the 24/7 Nurse Advice Line at (800) TRICARE (800-874-2273). It's open 24/7, including holidays. TRICARE East (Humana Military) is available at (800) 444-5445 and www.HumanaMilitary.com, to help find network providers. For your ongoing, maintenance medications, you can "skip the trip" with TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery. Home Delivery is free for active duty, and co-pays for other beneficiaries are for a 90-day-supply (rather than a 30 day supply). Visit www.tricare.mil/homedelivery or call (877) 363-1303. TRICARE network pharmacies are another option, with many locations offering drive-thru service. For more information, visit www.tricare.mil/networkpharmacy or call (877) 363-1303. Phoebe Putney Health System offers a COVID-19 Hotline at (229) 312-1919; it's open daily, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
