LATEST UPDATES FOR ASSIGNED PERSONNEL
Per DOD & SOUTHCOM policy, pre-travel & post travel risk assessments are required for ALL official travel and for unofficial travel for military members. Civilians and contractors are encouraged to use the forms as well for leave. The SOUTHCOM assessment forms have recently been updated to provide links to useful resources and to include the latest CDC guidance:
For domestic and OCONUS Level 1 & 2 travel, decision on whether Restriction of Movement (ROM) is required upon return is made at the Directorate level. For OCONUS travel to Level 3 & 4 countries, Force Health Protection supplement #12 drives ROM requirements as noted on the assessment forms.
Note that the CDC now recommends the following additional measures:
- During travel: At all times, mask/stay 6 feet apart w/anyone who did NOT travel with you– indoors & outdoors
- After travel: If there are people in the household who did not travel with you, wear a mask and ask everyone in the household to wear masks in shared spaces inside your home for 14 days after travel.
Testing for all travel
- Travelers test 1-3 days prior and 3-5 days after travel.
