The Maneuver Support Center of Excellence and U.S. Army Garrison Fort Leonard Wood began procedures this week as they continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended social distancing guidelines needed to mitigate and prevent the virus spreading.

Eligible military and civilian employees with MSCoE and Garrison are encouraged to telework, but must follow policies and procedures outlined in an updated telework memorandum of instruction that includes a response to COVID-19. The MOI, signed by MSCoE Chief of Staff Col. David Caldwell, was released Sunday.

Ultimately, supervisors determine which positions in their organizations are eligible for telework, and must ensure the impact doesn’t diminish operations. Supervisors are responsible for making sure employees are held accountable for any government-furnished equipment they receive and that employees’ time is accounted for in the Automated Time Attendance and Production System.
