Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – In line with directives from the Department of the Army, Fort Campbell has upgraded the installation’s Health Protection Condition Level (HPCON) to level Charlie.

There are not yet any confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) on Fort Campbell, but there are more than 200 tests pending. Leaders have taken these actions out of an abundance of caution, at the direction of the Army, and to mirror the efforts of civilian partners as they work together to mitigate the spread of the virus.

In terms of personal impact, the upgrade to HPCON level Charlie will not significantly differ from the modifications announced March 24th during the installation’s virtual town hall meeting.
