    Updated Volunteer COVID vaccination testing guidance
    In our efforts to keep you updated in the dynamic and changing COVID guidance, we have updated the attached FAQs on volunteer vaccination guidance per the latest FRAGORD 14. In summary testing requirements for “official visitors” including volunteers is now based on CDC community rates. Volunteers requiring government building access will not have to be tested in low rate counties; tested in medium rate counties; and masked and tested in high rate counties. "Official Visitors" per guidance are not the public recreation visitors but are non-DOD individuals seeking access, one time or recurring, in association with the performance of official DOD business. Volunteers who do not access USACE buildings or government vehicles and serve outdoors or who only receive ad hoc access are not required to complete the DD 3150 form or present negative test results. The new guidance further directs that official visitors will conduct COVID- 19 testing at their own expense and will not be provided onsite self-testing. All Volunteer coordinators have received the updated information per the email below. FRAGORD 14 and attachments are available on the HQSACE Published Operation Orders site by selecting current year published and type – FRAGORD.

    As noted in previous emails, implementation of the COVID guidance and requirements for workforce are delegated to the Commanders with approvals and timelines established at your MSC and Districts. If you need any further information, please contact myself or Heather Burke, National Partnership and Volunteer Program Manager at heather.d.burke@usace.army.mil
