One USFK-affiliated Individual Confirmed with COVID-19

PA-001-21 | Jan. 19, 2021

A Department of Defense civilian, who works on U.S. Army Garrison - Yongsan, tested positive for COVID-19 on Jan. 18.

 

The individual has been in quarantine at his off-installation residence since Jan. 8 following his direct contact with someone who tested recently positive for the virus.

 

He tested positive after developing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and is currently in isolation at an USAG-Humphreys facility designated for confirmed COVID-19 cases.

 

USFK health professionals determined contact tracing was limited due to the individual being in quarantine.

 

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 and the mission.
