Effective immediately, out of an abundance of caution to protect the force, USFK has directed all individuals affiliated with either USAG-Yongsan or USAG-Humphreys - regardless if residing on or off installation - will immediately “shelter in place” until Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 11:59 pm.
USFK defines “shelter in place” as remaining at your residence - including other occupants or residents - except for life, health, safety and essential services to include food and medicine purchases.
Bubble-to-bubble movement or travel to/from USAG-Yongsan or USAG-Humphreys and any other USFK installation is not authorized until further notice; mission critical individuals can be granted an exception by their command to perform assigned and authorized duties and missions.
Any individual who traveled to USAG-Yongsan from Jan. 6 - 15, will notify their chain of command, and contact the COVID Hotline at 050.3337.2556 for further instructions; 65th MED will contact all individuals identified as part of their contact trace.
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.
These directives will give USFK the time needed to thoroughly complete its COVID-19 contact tracing.
We must protect the force to protect the mission.
The following list provides on and off installation authorized activities through Tuesday, Jan 19 at 11:59 pm. If you have questions about these authorizations, contact your chain of command or supervisor, and not the
COVID-19 Hotline. You should ONLY call the COVID-19 Hotline if you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms or have been directed to do so by your chain of command.
