Public Health Emergency Declaration on USFK Installations Renewed

By USFK Public Affairs

The USFK Commander has renewed the current Public Health Emergency Declaration. It will remain in effect through 28 January 2021, unless it is renewed or terminated before then.

The decision to renew the PHE does not change USFK’s current health protection condition, preventive mitigation measures being taken, or indicate an increased risk level on USFK installations.

USFK will continually assess necessary preventive measures to protect the force.

USFK remains committed to providing a robust combined defense posture while maintaining a “Fight Tonight” readiness to protect the Republic of Korea against any adversary or threat while implementing and maintaining prudent preventive control measures to protect the force.
