PCS Moves in a COVID-19 Environment

Current as of June 15, 2020

Protect your health while moving

Learn about five measures you can take while moving during the current pandemic.

The Department of Defense relocates more than 400,000 personal-property shipments for service members, DOD civilians and their families each year across the globe. The department is committed to making these permanent change-of-station moves safe — especially during the coronavirus disease 2019 outbreak. Protecting people takes top priority.

As the COVID-19 world situation slowly improves, the DOD is basing personnel movement and travel decisions on conditions in specific areas. That means military moves are beginning to pick up again. Whether you are PCSing inside or outside of the continental United States, the DOD has new safety measures in place to empower you and your family and make your move safe.

Below, you’ll find answers to questions about safe PCSing. Understanding of COVID-19 is rapidly changing, so continue to check our Coronavirus Updates for Our Military Community page for updates.
