Ramstein COVID-19 testing

Ramstein’s testing center is located at the medical clinic’s parking lot. While the parking lot is closed to thru-traffic, it is open for those presenting for testing. You do not have to exit your vehicle and walk up to the tent: just drive through the tent!

Tax filing deadline extended to May 17

The IRS has announced an extension to the traditional tax filing deadline from April 15 to May 17 for individual taxpayers and taxpayers who pay self-employment tax. For taxpayers owing money to the IRS, the deadline to pay is also extended to May 17, without penalties or interest. Overseas filers can still take advantage of the automatic extended filing date of July 15. However, this automatic filing date for overseas filers does not prevent the accrual of penalties or interest for those who owe; payments must be made by May 17 to avoid these fees. Of note, this extension only applies to federal tax filing and not to state filing, check with your state tax agency for filing deadlines.

Post Office parcel update

The U.S. Postal Service is experiencing unprecedented volume increases and limited employee availability due to the impacts of COVID-19. Capacity challenges with airlifts and trucking for moving this historic volume of mail are leading to temporary delays. The Post Office appreciates your patience if your package is delayed.

This enables patients to maintain proper physical distancing. Medication refills can be processed through TRICARE Online or through the automated refill line (06371-865601), and will be ready for pick-up the next duty day after 1 p.m. Pharmacy hours of operation are Mon-Fri 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
