COVID-19 Impact on OCS & TBS

Please be aware, the Marine Corps doesn't have a road-map for the COVID-19 pandemic either, but they have to keep our troops safe. When the USMC provides answers and additional information, we will publish it on these pages of our website. Our take on this will be that the military will exercise more caution and keep civilians off the bases longer than what other populations and communities do in our country.

April 4 Update for TBS

The Basic School has announced several updates via its Facebook page to include closures, gate hours, and the limited movement of TBS personnel. Service members are only authorized local leave and liberty for a 100 mile radius. Graduating Lieutenants with orders to Japan or Okinawa will have those orders cancelled with Japan designated as a Travel Health Notice Level 3. Graduates waiting to execute orders to MOS school will still execute those orders but leave enroute is not authorized. For more information, refer to the TBS Facebook page.

Pentagon Orders Bases to Not Release Specific Covid-19 Numbers

Due to OPSEC concerns, the Pentagon has ordered military bases to stop releasing specific Covid-19 numbers.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said last week, "What we want to do is give you aggregated numbers. But we're not going to disaggregate numbers because it could reveal information about where we may be affected at a higher rate than maybe some other places." As of Monday March 30, 569 active-duty service members, 220 civilian personnel, 190 family members, and 64 contractors have tested positive for Covid-19.
