Yes civilians can be seen in the clinic if they are an eligible beneficiaries. We are currently seeing emergency care only for our eligible beneficiaries. Please call the clinic at DSN 590-2800/06371-9464-2800 starting after 0730 for a screening and triage to determine eligibility, COVID-19 exposure, and the extent of the emergency in order to give the dental staff a heads up.
As the number of COVID-19 cases in Europe increases, we may have to make some adjustments within our medical treatment facilities. Priority is always given to acute and emergent care and COVID-19 screening, and maximizing the use of virtual health encounters. We remain committed to maintaining the health and readiness of our beneficiaries, but changes could impact some routine appointments. Patients with appointments to address routine complaints of several weeks-months duration could be asked to adjust the timing of their appointments. If that happens, they will be contacted in advance by their Primary Care Team.
In an effort to minimize exposure risk and spread of COVID-19, we are also limiting points of entry to our clinics and we will be screening for COVID-19 risk indicators. Please fully cooperate with the clinic staff conducting the screenings and checkups. They are doing this to protect all Soldiers, family members and staff from the spread of infection.
We are committed to maintaining the overall health and Readiness of our military community while prioritizing acute and emergent care. We apologize for any inconvenience and will do our best to maximize access to care. If you have questions or need more information, please contact your primary care provider.

In order to maintain patient and personnel safety amidst COVID-19, we will take actions as prescribed by Health Protection Condition (HPCON) Risk Levels and health official’s guidance and will adjust our Military Medical Treatment Facility (MTF) Pharmacy operations as necessary. Careful local assessments will determine the status of each individual military pharmacy and may result in temporary measures to adapt to this changing situation. In extreme circumstances, there may be temporary, partial or full limitations of MTF Pharmacy services. These will be temporary solutions that will be assessed daily.
In the case of a local outbreak or a confirmed case of COVID-19 amongst MTF Pharmacy teammates, MTF Directors have been authorized to limit pharmacy services as necessary. We don’t expect any of these limitations to be a routine practice but rather a case-by-case determination based on the severity of the spread of COVID-19 at a specific location. If pharmacy services are limited, they will be assessed daily and reopened as soon as it is safe for personnel and beneficiaries.

Typical symptoms for COVID-19 can include, but are not limited to: a temperature at or above 100°Fahrenheit, night sweats or chills, a persistent cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, and/or sore throat.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, please visit the Stuttgart Army Health Clinic’s website for information on who to contact about testing. https://rhce.amedd.army.mil/stuttgart/stuttgart_status.html
Do not go to work or send your child to school/daycare.
Please contact your health care provider before visiting a medical treatment facility. TRICARE beneficiaries should call the toll-free Nurse Advice Line at 0800-071-3516.
To access the Nurse Advice Line (NAL) from a cell phone in Europe you must first call your clinic appointment line and choose the option for the Nurse Advice Line.
Non-TRICARE beneficiaries should contact their primary care provider or Insurance Provider for advice.
As always, if you are experiencing respiratory distress, or believe you have a life threatening condition, please call emergency services or report to the closest emergency room.
The guidance is the same for all Army Medical Treatment Facilities here in Europe. Patients are screened in accordance with Department of Defense and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. Initial entry screening will consist of a questionnaire to determine if you have symptoms related to COVID.
Testing is based on four priorities:
1) A person who exhibits symptoms that include, but are not limited to as temperature of 100° F or higher, night sweats or chills, persistent cough and shortness of breath
2) A person that has been identified by a tracer team as having been in close contact with a person that is COVID-19 positive
3) A person who is in an identified “high risk” work area as defined by having two or more COVID-19 positive cases within the same workspace or workgroup
4) Other people identified by the Senior Responsible Officer as being at risk.
These protocols will help your healthcare provider determine whether or not you need to be tested for COVID-19.
One important thing to remember is that our frontline healthcare providers don’t treat COVID-19. They treat its symptoms. So whether or not you have a positive test will not change the treatment you receive; it just allows us to track where and how the virus is spreading, and isolate people who have been infected. Our providers are taking all appropriate action to ensure the safety of our beneficiaries.

The Stuttgart Veterinary Clinic can also assist you with international pet travel requirements (contact details below). Another good resource for international pet travel requirements is: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel. Some basic requirements are:
- Ensure your pet’s vaccinations are current. Pets must have a current rabies vaccination 30 days in advance of travel.
- Pets will need a 15 digit ISO compliant microchip implanted prior to the rabies vaccine.
- Pets residing in the EU will need an EU pet passport.
- Schedule a health certificate appointment with the clinic within 10 days of your flight. Your pet will need to be present for this appointment.
- Travel will a copy of the animal’s health certificate, passport, and a photo of your pet.
- Ensure you plan for additional expenses in the PCS budget and save receipts just in case expenses are reimbursable or tax deductible. NOTE: Some personnel have reported delayed travel for family members to accompany pets on alternate airlines, out of pocket expenses in excess of $2000 that were not reimbursable, and the need to ask for support from family or friends to keep pets in CONUS (temporary boarding) during the time on assignment in Europe.
- Due to recent policy changes for some airlines/carriers, some incoming personnel have reported significant additional expenses on last minute changes to secure travel for pets using different vendors. Research possible vendors to ship your pet independently and confirm arrangements on both drop-off and pick-up points/dates/times.
- The Patriot Express offers cost-effective pet travel, however, whether flying on the PE or a commercial airline, the cost for shipping pets rest solely on the owner and is not reimbursable by the government. For specific PE flight details and reservations contact your SATO travel representative. Find out more at http://www.spacea.net/faq/patriot-express
- Secure an airline-approved shipping crate that is the right size. Let your pet become accustomed to the crate before shipment by having practice sessions that build in time of confinement.
- Put identification tags that include an emergency phone number around your pet’s neck. Print your name and destination address clearly on the shipping crate.
- Feed your pet just a light meal about six hours before shipping — no water within two hours unless it is very hot (or the animal is very small). A water dish that is attached so it cannot tip should be provided, but it should be conveniently located to allow an attendant to provide water at stopovers without being bitten. Send dry food along if the trip is long. Do not tranquilize the animal.
- Check with the agent who meets the flight about your pet’s progress when you are changing planes. Allow plenty of time between connecting flights to be sure your animal is transferred to your flight if traveling with you. Arrange to have your pet picked up immediately upon arrival. Airline facilities for pets may be limited or nonexistent.
