New face covering guidelines are in effect for fully vaccinated personnel at USAG Stuttgart facilities from Mar. 2, 2022.

Masks such as these pictured above will become optional for fully vaccinated personnel in most areas of USAG Stuttgart from Mar. 2, 2022.

Fully vaccinated personnel — defined as:

➤ individuals who received an FDA licensed or authorized COVID-19 booster; OR

  • Medical facilities, to include the COVID-19 test area and COVID-19 vaccination sites

Personnel must continue to adhere to all host nation mask directives off post, and should continue to observe COVID-19 preventive measures such as hand washing and physical distancing in public places.

Those who are NOT fully vaccinated, based on the definition above, will continue to follow mask guidance as published by the CDC, DoD, and USAG Stuttgart, and wear masks in service facilities and other places as required.
