MESSAGE FROM THE COMMANDER

“We continue to make progress with our COVID-19 vaccine effort. Your health and safety continue to be my top priority. Our team is working very hard to ensure that all SOUTHCOM personnel have the opportunity to get vaccinated safely and quickly. The vaccine is proven safe and effective and I strongly encourage all personnel to get vaccinated. We will need to achieve sufficient population immunity before we can expect a relaxation in our force health protection measures (FHP). For the foreseeable future, we will continue with our FHP like wearing masks, social distancing, washing our hands, and disinfecting work stations.”

LATEST UPDATES FOR ASSIGNED PERSONNEL

Travel:

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:

All travel

  • 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.
