Take Note – January 7, 2022

LRMC information

As you may have heard, due to rising numbers of COVID-19 infections, Germany has revised the Infection Protection Act, which is applicable to U.S. Forces in Germany in accordance with Article 54 of the NATO-SOFA Supplementary Agreement. In the revision, workplace access is restricted to vaccinated, recovered or tested employees.

In light of the revised act, we want to remind our communities that testing capabilities at military treatment facilities are reserved for official purposes and individuals who present medical symptoms.

Unit Leaders who have questions regarding the revised act should reference Force Health Protection Guidance (Supplement 23) which established COVID-19 screening testing for unvaccinated individuals.

Fitness Centers

Southside Fitness Center officially reopened with 24/7 access. Sunday, Resiliency Days, Family Days and Holidays will be 24/7 access only, Northside Fitness Center and Vogelweh Fitness Center will remain 24/7 access.
