The 14th Medical Group at Columbus Air Force Base, Mississippi, has recently revamped their entry and screening procedures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Patients who show symptoms or have been out of the state, have to go through an additional screening and sometimes testing phase.

Those experiencing symptoms such as a fever >100.4F, cough or shortness of breath, call the Nurse Advice Line immediately at 1-800-TRICARE (1-800-874-2273), option 1.
