FORT CARSON — According to a release, soldiers with 627th Hospital Center will redeploy from Washington back to Fort Carson military base Thursday evening.

Late last month, the unit deployed approximately 200 personnel to Washington, one of the areas hit earliest and hardest in the United States by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Upon return to Fort Carson all personnel will immediately self-quarantine for a 14-day period, which is in line with CDC guidance for all personnel coming from a Level 3 area.

The unit is also on a 48-hour standby to deploy elsewhere in the country as needed, but at this time no new assignments have been publicly announced, per the release.
