Returning to the Workplace
The following resources provide recommended actions for the safe re-integration of the total Army workforce (Soldiers, DA Civilians, contractors, and volunteers). Installation Commanders, Public Health Emergency Ofﬁcers (PHEOs), and health departments must work together to determine which actions are needed to balance mission completion with the safety of their workforce.
Fully Vaccinated Personnel
Personnel are not required to remain out of the workplace even if they have been in close contact with someone who is suspected or confirmed to be infected with COVID-19 if they remain asymptomatic and:
- have waited 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines,
- have waited 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine, or
- have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months and who have recovered (FRAGO 57, MEDCOM OPORD 20-29, 192a).
Sustaining Workplace Operations
Installation Commanders and Public Health staff should adopt additional protocols consistent with their specific needs and circumstances to help control workplace hazards and protect the health and safety of all personnel on their installations.
