Gary Brito: The Army's mission will not stop.
We're gonna continue to train within some limitations.
This is very hard.
I'm just gonna lay it out, this is hard.
Hard in that we're also gonna continue
to train our mission.
Narrator: The COVID-19 crisis has already made an impact
on training at the US Army's Maneuver Center of Excellence
inside the Fort Benning military base.
New medical screenings and protocols
are changing the way basic training is conducted.
Every year about 69,000 soldiers arrive at Fort Benning,
where future infantry and armor soldiers
go through basic combat training.
The footage of training in this video
was shot when we visited Fort Benning in February of 2020,
before training was impacted by the crisis.
As of March 28th,
six confirmed cases of COVID-19
have been connected to Fort Benning.
According to the Army,
the patients were not part of training operations.
On March 24, Fort Benning's commanding general
gave updates and answered questions
in a town hall broadcast on Facebook Live.
For the moms and dads that are out there
and all the loved ones across America,
we do not have any positive COVID-19 cases
in the training base right now.
Now I'm not gonna be naive and say that it may not happen,
but we'll continue to screen,
we'll continue to offer the best protection
and mitigation measures that we can
for all of our soldiers.
Narrator: Every week, hundreds of new recruits arrive
from all over the country
to begin their One Station Unit Training,
usually on buses like this one.
According to Major General Gary Brito,
new recruits will still be received amid the pandemic.
Brito: At this point we'll also continue
to receive future soldiers, although perhaps
in some smaller numbers over the next couple of months.
Narrator: According to Brito,
incoming recruits get their temperature taken
before they board the vehicle
that takes them to Fort Benning and they're asked questions
about where they've recently been
and if they're feeling any symptoms.
Brito: We can make the call
when a person shows up
and they may be coming from one of those states
that is heavily hit like New York State at this time
and move he or she directly to a safe quarantine location
to ensure that we minimize the risk of any COVID-19 spreads.
Narrator: As for the thousands of recruits
currently training at Fort Benning,
training will continue, albeit with some limitations.
Brito: As you well know,
we're gonna continue our training,
there's a lot of measures in place to assist us
in social distancing, managing physical distance
and the simple risks that our soldiers may be opened up to.
Narrator: As you can see
from this footage shot in February,
some of the training requires physical contact,
but because of the new health risks,
recruits are being ordered to incorporate
a so-called physical dispersion of at least 40 inches,
which is a bit more than three feet between themselves
and other recruits.
According to Fort Benning, training like you see here
known as combatives, which requires physical contact,
has been temporarily suspended.
And for training like military operations
in urban terrain, or MOUT,
instructors are ordering recruits
to incorporate social distancing as much as possible.
Brito: The commanders and command sergeant majors
are empowered to keep the soldiers physically fit,
keeping in mind, the dispersion
and the group stuff just needs to stop.
That is something that'll continue,
we'll have to continue to monitor
and stop people if they're doing the wrong thing.
Narrator: Perhaps the biggest impact
is what happens to the soldiers after they graduate.
All visitors are prohibited
from attending graduation ceremonies,
which typically happen every week and the future timelines
for graduates ready to join the Army remains unclear.
Brito: As of now
they will remain here at Fort Benning,
and we're working with the Army
through Department of Defense policies
on how and when they will be shipped to their gaining unit.
I cannot put a timeline on that now.
Narrator: According to Major General Brito,
there is no shortage of space at Fort Benning
to house the graduates who, for now, cannot leave.
Brito: And so far it's going well for us.
But I don't wanna be naive enough
to say that the threat was not gonna continue.
And we'll mitigate and treat it the best we can
and make the prudent decisions to protect our force,
family members, civilians and soldiers included
of all ranks, the best we can as well.
