Message from the Director

It’s been over a year since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. The days, weeks and months following that announcement profoundly altered the way we live, conduct business and view the world around us — but we have never been deterred from our mission.

As we continue to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 and its variants, I encourage each of you to pay careful attention to the information on this webpage. Here, you can find the most up-to-date DIA policies and guidance on how to continue safely navigating the pandemic.

I want to thank each of you for your resiliency, flexibility and adaptability during these unprecedented times. What I have witnessed as we’ve maneuvered through the unknowns of this pandemic is nothing short of inspirational. Our unwavering commitment to excellence in defense of our Nation will ensure a bright future for our Agency.

Your strength has made all the difference this year.

LTG Scott Berrier
Director, Defense Intelligence Agency


  • Guidelines for DIA Employees

    Employees diagnosed with COVID-19 based on a positive laboratory test or presumptively based on a medical provider’s clinical assessment must follow the guidance and criteria provided to them by their medical provider regarding medical clearance to return to work because each case is unique. Employees do not pose additional risks to others once medically cleared by their medical providers. Once medically cleared by their provider, employees must contact the Office of the Surgeon General (OSG) for medical clearance to return to work at a DIA Facility.

    How to contact OSG and get cleared: 
    Employees or supervisors on behalf of their employees may request medical clearance by sending an email on NIPR to:  Medical_clinic@dodiis.mil or DIASurgeonGeneral@dodiis.mil. Include the employee's name and a contact information. OSG will call the employee back.

    Supervisors are also able to send an email on JWICS on behalf of their employees:  DIAOHR6.MedicalClinic@coe.ic.gov or DIASurgeonGeneral@coe.ic.gov. Include the employee's name and a contact information. OSG will call the employee back.

    Those employees without NIPR access will need to call 202-231-2609.
