All members requiring routine support will be directed to utilize this online system to process their requests.

DISTRIBUTION MANAGEMENT OFFICE
Negative COVID-19 Test Results Required Within 72 Hours of Departure Date for International Flights
Marines must have COVID-19 negative test results in hand prior to arriving at Aerial Port of Embarkation (APOE’s) such as Seattle International Airport (SEA) and Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) when traveling on AMC Patriot Express flights. Passengers may be denied travel without negative test results in hand. There is testing available on-site as a last resort, but it is limited, so again there is a chance some travelers may be denied travel if everyone isn’t tested by the flight close-out time.
During the Tuesday, 23 February Joint Staff J4 COVID-19 teleconference, Air Mobility Command Headquarters briefed that the Services must do a better job of getting the word out to travelers advising them to have a copy of the COVID-19 negative test results in hand. The percentage of personnel with COVID-19 negative test results within 72 hours of the departure date for international flights departing from CONUS APOEs should be over 80%. For the past two weeks, it averaged just 49%. Therefore, the APOEs had to test over 1,200 personnel because they did not have test results and the APOEs cannot afford to keep up that tempo with the amount of test kits they have on hand.
All travelers and their dependents heading to Baltimore or Seattle APOEs must have those test results with them as a hard copy only and they must keep that copy on them until they arrive at their OCONUS destination.
