Anchor: Hello, and welcome to another episode of the “Zama Pulse,” the show that brings you news highlights and important U.S. Army Garrison Japan community updates. I’m Sergeant Raquel Birk. (Pause)
COVID-19 is still a serious health threat, and cases are resurging throughout the world, including in Japan and on military installations. U.S. Army Japan recently updated its General Order #1, including the approved off-post activity guide as well as an updated mask policy. Please adhere to the following orders. (Insert Graphics)
– Vaccinated personnel arriving or returning to Japan are restricted to their room or Restriction of Movement (ROM) location and are required to get a COVID-19 test after five days on ROM. If they receive a negative result, they will be released but remain on the installation through the 14th day with freedom to move around the installation.
– Unvaccinated personnel are restricted to their room or ROM location and are required to get a COVID-19 test after eight to ten days on ROM. If they receive a negative result, they will be released but remain on the installation through the 14th day with freedom to move around the installation.
As of August 3rd, several prefectures in Japan that were previously low-risk areas are now categorized as moderate-risk areas. In addition, some previously moderate-risk areas are now categorized as significant-risk areas. These include Kanagawa, Saitama and Okinawa prefectures.
Fully vaccinated personnel are authorized to do takeout and outdoor dining in Kanagawa and other high-risk prefectures. They are also authorized to take public transportation. However, all indoor entertainment venues, to include sporting events, tourist sites and other attractions, are prohibited to everyone, whether vaccinated or not.
All of the above are off-limits to not-fully vaccinated personnel until they complete the vaccine or elect to get it.
As of August 5th, regardless of one’s vaccination status, all personnel on U.S. Army Japan installations are required to wear a mask indoors, with the following exceptions:
– Being alone in one’s office
– When eating or drinking
– When conducting physical fitness
– When doing official public speaking
– When in an outdoor location
– When performing music
– When alone in your private vehicle or other private space

Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
