😷 Kunsan COVID-19 UPDATE 😷

On March 24, USFK adjusted its health protection condition level in Yongsan and Seongnam Districts to Bravo. Which remains in effect as of 27 August, detailed graphic here

Beginning Saturday, Aug. 28 at midnight, United States Forces Korea will transition to a new method for implementing COVID-19 preventive measures for its affiliated communities that better aligns USFK with Republic of Korea, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Defense guidelines.

USFK’s established standards mirrors the DOD’s substantial transmission threshold definition of an incidence rate that exceeds 50 confirmed cases per 100,000 people for a seven day cumulative rate when applied to approximately 230 Korean districts across the peninsula.

  • Travel to a restricted district is only authorized for work-related and mission essential activities. Mission essential activities are defined as life, health, and safety, including, but not limited to: emergency services, hospitals, health care provider visits, pharmacies, education, child care, and realtor services.
  • Travel through a restricted district is authorized in both public transportation and privately owned transportation. USFK-affiliated personnel shall not stop within a restricted district during travel (unless emergency situation dictates).
  • Travel to/from and between USFK installations is authorized.
  • Exception to policy for the aforementioned travel restrictions requires Sq/CC approved exception to policy memo.
  • Per USFK guidance, all bars, clubs, saunas, bathhouses, and off-installation gyms are off-limits for 8 FW personnel who are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
  • Mask wear remains mandatory for all 8 FW personnel, regardless of vaccination status, at all indoor common areas on installation. Indoor common areas include, but are not limited to, the following locations: exchange, commissary, taxis/buses on installation, churches/other indoor religious services, MWR facilities, and restaurants/dining facilities (except while actively eating).

USFK will update its interactive Korean district incidence rates map, currently located at www.usfk.mil/coronavirus/, each Wednesday evening - which will then update via the map below. 

The following Senior Staff Directives apply to all military personnel, family members, U.S. and Korean National civilian employees, DoD contractors, retirees, and any other individuals with access to Kunsan AB.
