FRAGO 10 provides updates to pooled testing strategy, medical logistics, testing guidance & priorities, references to FHP 12, ROM guidance for travel to/from foreign countries and the United States, and deployment certification briefings. Some key guidance follows:

a. (3.D.13.C.2.) On 29 June 2020, the Secretary of Defense published the memorandum, Exemption of Authorized Leave for Department of Defense Service Members From Coronavirus Disease 2019 Personnel Movement and Travel Restrictions, Reference K.

b. (3.D.13.C.2.B.) Commanders and supervisors will follow the procedures in Annex II (DOD Force Health Protection Supplement 12) for all Soldiers traveling on leave. Commanders and supervisors will establish a means of communication with all soldiers throughout the period of leave and the post-travel process, as well as prescribing actions for their particular circumstances.

c. (3.D.23.A.) IAW Force Health Protection (FHP) Supplement 12 (Annex II), all Soldiers travelling from or through a CDC THN Level-3 country to the United States on official travel will undergo a 14-day ROM upon arrival at their residence or other appropriate location. Additionally, Soldiers travelling from or through a CDC THN Level 2 or 3 country to the United States will self-monitor for COVID-19 signs and symptoms for 14 days and comply with all installation, CDC, state, and local guidance upon arrival in the United States. Army civilians, family members, and contractors are strongly recommended to follow this FHP guidance for return to the United States from international travel.

d. (3.D.27.) Effective 29 August 2020, all Army Civilians deploying outside of the United States are required to complete the full 14-day pre-deployment processing at Camp Atterbury, Indiana, which includes a 14-day restriction of movement (ROM), COVID-19 testing, and MILAIR flight departing from Indianapolis, Indiana. NLT 13 September 2020, all redeploying Army Civilians are required to complete the full 14-day post-deployment processing and ROM at Camp Atterbury, Indiana immediately upon arrival at Indianapolis, Indiana via MILAIR flight from a location outside of the United States.

e. (3.D.29.) For Soldiers, family members, DA Civilians, and contractors under the jurisdiction of the SECARMY departing on official travel outside the United States and its territories, the Army will implement more restrictive COVID-19 risk mitigation measures than the Department of Defense has outlined in previous guidance, including Force Health Protection Supplement 12, released on 6 August 2020 (Annex II). Updated criteria, by category, for travel outside the United States are found in Annex DD. This annex is updated to provide refined guidance for pre-official travel requirements. Any travel not specifically addressed in Annex DD will follow provisions in Supplement FHP 12.

This Army-mandated 14-day ROM and COVID-19 test requirement does not apply to official travel transiting from the U.S., through a foreign country, and back into the U.S. when no official duties will be performed in the foreign country.
