USFK adjusts to HPCON Bravo

By USFK Public Affairs

USFK adjusted its Health Protection Condition from “Bravo Plus” to “Bravo,” beginning Thursday, April 21 at 6 a.m.

Authorized off-installation activities include seated dining at restaurants, indoor malls, theaters, amusement parks and festivals, overnight stays, and any other indoor and outdoor activity currently authorized within the ROK guidelines.

Along with these activities, off-installation bars, clubs, saunas, spas, bathhouses, karaoke establishments and any facility that restricts entry to adults only is authorized for FULLY VACCINATED individuals.

According to the Department of Defense’s definition, a person is considered fully vaccinated 14 days following the completion of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved COVID-19 vaccination series. If you are not fully vaccinated, you cannot attend these now authorized facilities.

The best preventive measures to remain protected is to maintain an “up-to-date” vaccination status by being fully vaccinated, taking the boosters when eligible, adhering to USFK HPCON levels and core tenets, and avoiding South Korean “hotspots” when traveling.

All USFK-affiliated individuals are reminded to adhere to all South Korean rules, directives and laws regarding COVID-19.

The new COVAX facility on Camp Humphreys is at the MSG Jenkins Clinic, Bldg. 555, as of April 15, 2022. Contact your local medical treatment facilities for the nearest COVAX Center location and hours of operations near you.

USFK will continue to monitor and assess the COVID-19 environment and will make additional adjustments to protect the force and our mission.
