USFK has Declared that all Travel To or Within Busan Off-limits

By USFK Public Affairs

Due to the continued rise of confirmed COVID-19 cases and increased incidence rates in Busan, and out of an abundance of caution to protect the force, USFK has declared that all travel to or within Busan - except for those who reside within Busan or for individuals conducting official and necessary duties there - is off-limits effective Saturday, Dec. 5 at 6 p.m.

Bubble-to-bubble travel for Busan residents remains authorized to other USFK installations.

USFK continually monitors the COVID-19 conditions on the peninsula, and makes an official assessment and recommendation every seven days for consideration and approval.

All USFK-affiliated individuals are reminded to adhere to all USFK core tenets, HPCON measures and ROK government and local directives to protect yourself, your bubble and others from COVID-19.

We must protect the force to protect the mission.
