USFK-affiliated personnel will be quarantined for 14 days in accordance with quarantine protocols outlined during in-processing. The basic principle behind the protocol is that separation from others protects individuals and families from exposure and potential infection. If that principle is broken, it may require additional time in quarantine and unnecessarily expose others to COVID-19. Those in on-post quarantine facilities will have contact with quarantine facility support personnel, including regular contact with medical professionals.
Fully vaccinated personnel (those individuals who have completed a FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccination series at least 14-days prior to travel to Korea) may engage in essential, on-post activities related to health and safety, such as purchasing food and attending medical appointments, while serving their 14-day quarantine if they have an approved quarantine action plan. Except for direct travel to and from an off-post residence, off-post activities are prohibited during the quarantine period. Movements of individuals is tracked at each installation entry point and other locations around military installations. Failure to adhere to the action plan provided during arrival at the reception center could result in punitive action.
Each room at on-post quarantine facilities is thoroughly disinfected by a trained team in accordance with CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. The cleaning happens before each room is occupied.
Wi-Fi is available in all quarantine facilities. It is highly recommended that service members and families download messaging platforms like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, KakaoTalk, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, etc. to facilitate contact with CONUS family members and military sponsors. From a Korean IP address most Netflix programming is available however, other popular streaming services may require use of a VPN and a U.S. IP address to work.
Each room is supplied with disinfectant wipes, hand soap, and trash bags. If any of these supplies are not present or run out during your stay, notify the building support cadre (the CQ) and they will replenish the item. Mops/brooms are available on request from your CQ personnel. When your trash needs to be taken out, call the CQ to notify them, tie off the bag to avoid spills, and set it outside. CQ personnel will pick it up.
Each day while in quarantine you will receive a health check from a medical professional. They will take your temperature and ask you questions looking for possible signs or symptoms of COVID-19. They will also inquire about non-COVID 19 related medical concerns and behavioral health questions and coordinate for follow-on care if required.
All USFK Personnel will conduct multiple PCR tests, the first occurring upon arrival at the reception center. Personnel will receive their second and third PCR test during the quarantine period - a Day 6/7 test and a Day 12 exit PCR test. Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 will be transported to the USFK Isolation Facility.
Smoking is not permitted in on-post quarantine facilities. Designated smoking areas are identified at each quarantine facility. Nicotine patches are available through 65th Medical Brigade. Please talk to quarantine cadre for further details.
Let the cadre know if you would like to speak with a chaplain or Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLC). They will put you in touch with the right people. Camp Humphreys On-Call Duty Chaplain can be contacted at 010-9496-7445.
For those who wish to participate in religious services while in quarantine, services at Camp Casey and Camp Humphreys are live streamed. Ask the cadre or check the garrison websites or social media for details.
Meals prepared at Army dining facilities (DFAC) are provided to those staying in on-post quarantine facilities. Those who do not want to receive DFAC meals can order and pay for groceries from the Commissary and cook in their rooms, but must coordinate for delivery through their sponsors. Anyone may also order and pay for delivery from on-post restaurants. All deliveries will be received by the building cadre and then delivered to you. Most rooms will not have cooking utensils and quarantined personnel should work with their sponsors to obtain these items if needed. AAFES Food Delivery @ https://aafesprem.imenu360.com/map/map.html.
Some items to consider packing before you PCS are: hygiene kit, tablet/phone with charger, shower/bath soap, towels, prescription medication, comfortable clothes, dietary items, baby needs and water bottles.
Laundry facilities are available at on-post quarantine facilities. You can expect to do laundry once during the 14-day quarantine period. The CQ will assist with scheduling.
