USFK Clarifies Latest COVID-19 Confirmation

PA-001-20 | Nov. 25, 2020

USAG HUMPHREYS, Republic of Korea —

A USFK Soldier stationed at USAG-Humphreys who was recently reported as being confirmed with COVID-19 has been declared negative for the virus.

 

USFK’s established quality control measures identified an administrative error that led to the Soldier’s test being labeled as a positive test, and a subsequent evaluation and test revealed the Soldier was negative for COVID-19.

 

All individuals identified in yesterday’s contact trace have been cleared to return to duty without delay.

 

USFK remains at a high level of readiness with less than 1% of its force currently confirmed positive with COVID-19.

 

USFK continues to maintain a robust combined defense posture to protect the Republic of Korea against any threat or adversary while maintaining prudent preventive measures to protect the force.
