 Relevant personnel of US forces stationed in South Korea must submit negative certificate before going to South Korea


Yonhap quoted a statement from lieutenant colonel Michael Nicholson of the eighth group army of the US Army as saying that the testing date of the certificates submitted by the above personnel should be as close as possible to the departure date.

According to the Yonhap news agency, as of June 28, 168 cases of confirmed cases have been confirmed by US military personnel, family members and other personnel who have entered South Korea, of which 144 cases were diagnosed at the time of entry or during the period of compulsory isolation after entry, accounting for 85.7%.

According to the requirements of epidemic prevention in South Korea, military personnel, family members and other personnel of the U.S. military stationed in South Korea must be tested for new coronavirus and isolated for 14 days after arriving in South Korea. Before the isolation is removed, they must undergo a second detection.

Nicholson said the initial requirement of the U.S. military is that all army officers and soldiers, their families and other personnel who leave the country for official duties should be quarantined for 14 days before leaving the country and submit a negative virus test report. In view of the fact that South Korea has requested compulsory isolation, in order to avoid double isolation, the United States does not require relevant personnel of the US military stationed in South Korea to be isolated in the United States first.

New arrivals (related to U.S. forces in South Korea) will not come into contact with the South Korean community until it is clear that they are not infected and the 14 day compulsory isolation has ended, Nicholson said
