The first batch of soldiers at the British Army Training Regiment, Winchester (ATR(W)) have successfully completed training after the Covid-19 lockdown. Training for the 60 recruits to become soldiers began in January this year. They also undertook a virtual training regime via online video conferencing and used exercise apps for physical training. After being called back to barracks, each of the recruits were taught new practices and procedures to help minimise the risk of the virus spread.

The US National Guard is supporting two separate community-based Covid-19 collection sites in rural Lincoln County, Nevada. The collection sites are located in Alamo and Lincoln High School. Task Force (TF) 17 soldiers are leading the efforts. 15 soldiers with the 17th and five with TF Med were deployed out of Vegas to support the mission. The guard members helped the patients with their registration process, sample collection and sealing it into the test kit bag. The deployment was in response to request from the Lincoln County Health Department’s Emergency Management Office.

Nurses from the 94th Aeromedical Staging Squadron stationed at Dobbins Air Reserve Base (ARB) in Georgia have returned to the base. They successfully completed their deployment to the Covid-19 frontlines in New York City as part of the government response to the pandemic. Several medical personnel from Air Force Reserve Command have been working for the last few months to support the state and local governments across the continental US in their efforts to contain the spread of the virus. They are working together with their military and civilian counterparts in the US Army North-led Joint Forces Land Component Command (JFLCC).
