    Updated Volunteer Vaccination/Testing Information
    As a follow-up to our 14 Feb volunteer coordinator meeting on volunteer vaccinations/testing and our national NRM update yesterday 24 Feb, attached is further information cleared by Office of Counsel on guidance and FAQ regarding Volunteer testing standards.

    FRAGORD 11 to OPORD 2021-38 (USACE COVID Steady State Operations) dated 28 January 2022 directed Commanders, management officials, and supervisors should continue enforcing all other safety related mitigation measures as required in this order including screening or testing requirements as these measures fall outside the scope of the federal court injunction. This order (page 20) further directed USACE volunteers shall be treated as “official visitors” as defined in Attachment 2 of the 20 December 2021 “Force Health Protection Guidance (Supplement 23) Revision 3 - Department of Defense Guidance for Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination Attestation, Screening, Testing, and Vaccination Verification” (FHP 23).

    Please see attached “USACE Volunteer COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation Guidance for Civil Works Activities” document and supporting FRAGO and OPORD guidance. This document provides a summary of vaccination attestation/testing requirements and associated FAQs that have been requested by the field. HQUSACE Office of Counsel has reviewed and cleared.

    Similar to screening of unvaccinated personnel, the screening of official visitors including volunteers will be implemented under the delegation of the District Commander for consideration of mission needs and payment of any testing materials.
