One USFK-affiliated Individual Confirmed with COVID-19

PA-001-21 | May 19, 2021

A Korean National employee, who works at United States Army Garrison – Yongsan, tested positive for COVID-19 on May 12.


The employee tested positive during a mandatory test required to exit quarantine.


The individual has been in quarantine at their off-installation residence as directed by the Korean health authorities since April 27 following their direct contact with someone who recently tested positive for the virus.


The individual is currently in isolation at a Korea medical facility designated for confirmed COVID-19 cases. USFK health professionals determined contact tracing was limited due to this individual being in quarantine.


Despite the recent 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.
