LATEST UPDATES FOR ASSIGNED PERSONNEL
Updated mask and installation guidance
In accordance with new guidance published by the SecDef and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with the exception of the Army Health Clinic and the Child Development Center, mask wear is no longer required in any facility on the USAG-Miami installation (including USSOUTHCOM HQs) for vaccinated or unvaccinated personnel. This is consistent with Miami Dade County being Medium transmission under the new guidelines.
Indoor physical fitness center racquetball courts and saunas will re-open on 3 March. Basketball and volleyball courts will re-open on 15 March after All Hands tear down. Fitness group classes will resume when instructors become available. Massage services will resume when contractor becomes available. There is no longer a seating limit at indoor AAFES food court tables.
Individuals have the option to continue wearing a mask, as a personal preference. Additionally, individuals who need to wear a mask as close contacts or as recovering cases must continue mask wearing for a full 10 days. Quarantine for close contacts and isolation for those with COVID-19 are unchanged. Weekly screening testing for unvaccinated active duty and GS civilians will continue. We anticipate that when Miami Dade County reaches Low transmission, this screening testing will also be removed.
All other force health protection guidance remains in effect, including guidance regarding workplace access, occupancy levels, physical distancing, travel, and meetings.
Also understand that if transition rate returns to a High status, mask wearing may be brought back.
