USFK Clarifies Confirmed COVID-19 Case

U.S. Forces Korea

USFK has determined that it has not had an internal positive COVID-19 case since mid-April.
Based upon further research and discussion, USFK determined that the Osan Air Base contractor - who was announced on Sept. 5 as a confirmed case - is in fact not a USFK-affiliated member as he did not possess unlimited or unescorted access to USFK installations.

Therefore, USFK will no longer track or count him as a USFK confirmed case.
