Two USFK-affiliated Individuals Confirmed with COVID-19

PA-001-20 | Dec. 30, 2020

USAG HUMPHREYS, Republic of Korea —

Two USFK-affiliated individuals have tested positive for COVID-19.

The two individuals, a retired service member and his spouse, tested positive for COVID-19 on Dec. 30 after developing symptoms consistent with the virus.

They live in Hwaseo-myeon (Area IV), last visited United States Army Garrison - Humphreys on Dec. 18 and are currently in isolation at an USAG-Humphreys facility designated for confirmed COVID-19 cases.

KDCA and USFK health professionals are actively conducting contact tracing to determine whether anyone else may have been exposed to these individuals, and to identify and ensure all known on-post and off-post facilities visited by the contractors are thoroughly cleaned.

Despite the confirmed cases, USFK remains at a high level of readiness with less than 1% of its active duty service members 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.
