North Fort Hood monitoring area reaches operational capability


North Fort Hood's Controlled Monitoring Area Site is operational and ready to accept troops returning from Ebola virus disease outbreak areas, although none are expected to arrive here until spring.

The site was established, per Department of Defense instructions, out of an abundance of caution to monitor Soldiers returning from areas experiencing an outbreak of Ebola and to ensure the safety of Families and community members.

"This is a prudent and conservative approach that addresses the growing concerns within our military Families and Fort Hood communities," Maj. Richard Dempsey, CMAS project officer, III Corps, said.

Soldiers being monitored within the CMAS at Fort Hood would be classified as "no-known-risk" or "low-risk" because they would not have provided direct care to Ebola patients.
