Arrival in COVID Environment

Arrival to Osan Air Base (Patriot Express)

New arrivals will be escorted to a special gate area, given a mask and gloves, required to collect their baggage, and complete customs and immigrations. Once cleared, new arrivals will be directed to board a bus and transported to USAG Humphreys reception center. Upon arrival to the USAG Humphreys reception center, all arrivals will be medically tested for COVID-19. All PCSing arrivals will be scanned into the DBIDS system and be required to provide travel documentation (orders, DA Form 31, etc.). New arrivals with pets will be allowed to walk their pets outside in a designated pet area. Pets are to be in their crates when inside the reception center. Once new arrivals have completed all requirements at the reception center, all new arrivals will board a bus and be transported to their quarantine facilities.

All USFK affiliated personnel who test negative for COVID-19 upon arrival will complete a 15-day quarantine, provided their second COVID-19 test, which is administered on day twelve, comes back negative.

Personnel will undergo quarantine at U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys. USAG-H is the primary quarantine location with U.S. Army Garrison Casey as alternate, and U.S. Army Garrison Daegu as last resort.

Personnel may quarantine at their established residence on or off post with chain of command approval and a chain of command approved support plan.

If a person’s test results come back positive for COVID-19 they will be transported from their quarantine facility to the isolation facility under the care of medical professionals. People receiving medical care in the isolation facility are released after testing negative for COVID-19 twice in a 24 hour period.

Meals are provided while in quarantine. Personnel with dependents 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 takeout 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.

Upon completion of the 15 days, and a second negative COVID-19 test, you are released to your unit or organization to finish in-processing. Those moving into barracks, SLQs, or on-post housing will go from quarantine to their residence. Those moving into off-base housing will move into lodging.

Any USFK affiliated personnel who arrive at Incheon will be met by Eighth Army personnel when they clear customs to be transported to USAG Humphreys reception center where they will be administered a COVID-19 test. Following testing, they will be transported to their designated quarantine facility. All USFK affiliated personnel who test negative for COVID-19 upon arrival will complete a 15-day quarantine, provided their second COVID-19 test, which is administered on day twelve, comes back negative.

If a person’s test results come back positive for COVID-19 they will be transported from their quarantine facility to the isolation facility under the care of medical professionals. People receiving medical care in the isolation facility are released after testing negative for COVID-19 twice outside a 24 hour period.

Upon completion of the 15 days, and a second negative COVID-19 test, you are released to your unit or organization to finish in-processing. Those moving into barracks, SLQs, or on-post housing will go from quarantine to their residence. Those moving into off-base housing will move into lodging.
