A USFK Korean National employee, who works at Camp Walker in Daegu, tested positive for COVID-19, making this the ninth USFK-related person to be confirmed with the virus, with only one service member confirmation to date.
The employee is currently in isolation at her off-base residence as directed by KCDC.
KCDC and USFK health professionals are actively conducting contact tracing to determine whether anyone else may have been exposed.
USFK remains at risk level “high” peninsula-wide and is implementing all appropriate control measures to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 as a prudent measure to protect the force.
Additional information will be provided by USAG-Daegu and Area IV as it becomes available.
