USAG Italy unveils COVID-19 recovery plan

6th May 2020 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army Garrison (USAG) Italy has outlined how it intends to gradually resume services across its military bases as the country slowly reopens.

In a 6 May statement, the DoD reported that there would be a uniform process that will be overseen by Task Force Recovery working groups which will review the recommendations and measures made by service operators.

US Army Col Daniel Vogel, USAG Italy commander, said: ‘Task Force Recovery created a template to present which we call as ‘baseball card’... This template requires the provider to describe how they intend to operate their service, identify mitigation measures that will require meeting all safety protocols and resources required to restore any service.’

The working groups will meet each Thursday in order to determine which services shall reopen. This will then be reviewed by the senior officer for USAG Italy, Army Maj Gen Roger Cloutier. US bases in Italy were put into lockdown in March.
