Amid wide-spread fear and misinformation, the 1st Cavalry Division would like to provide links to official sources of information about the COVID-19 virus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has established a landing page on their website with the latest COVID-19 information from the CDC and the overarching medical community. As new information becomes available it will be updated on this site. We encourage all First Team Family Members to use this site as an official source of information. The page is currently promoting information on how it spreads, symptoms, prevention and treatment, stigma and COVID-19, what to do if you are sick, and frequently asked questions.

The Federal Government has created a website to provide information on their current efforts. As things change, this website will also be updated. The site lists updates for multiple government agencies, information on health and safety; travel, immigration, and transportation; money and taxes; education; scams and frauds; grants; housing; voting and elections, and much more.

The Army has also established a website to address Soldier’s and Family Member’s concerns, as well as outline what the Army’s response is to the pandemic. Due to the developing nature of the situation, updates will be made to this site as well. The site contains information on PCS and training delays, travel guidance, Army response efforts, Army medical research and development, and a message to the force from Army senior leaders.
