Latest Coronavirus (COVID 19)guidance

Good day 5NR Auxiliary Leaders,

I am happy to share with you the latest updated District Five Northern COVID Guidance for support, missions and gatherings; you’ll find that the guidelines offer more flexibility for members.

For example:

The 7101 form only needs to be submitted once per person and covers all missions. You will only have to resubmit this form if there is a change of information in Blocks 1 or 2. If you have already submitted an ANSC 7101 form, reference (c) to your OIA and to the DIRAUX office, no more forms need to be submitted, unless there is a change to Blocks 1 or 2.

All mass gatherings are authorized in accordance with references contained. You must complete the reference form and submit anytime in advance to the DIRAUX office.

Of course, Auxiliarists shall assess their personal ability beforehand to undertake any activity.

The safety of all Coast Guard and Auxiliary members and their families remains the highest priority. Everyone must honor and respect an Auxiliarist’s request to not participate in an assignment to duty due to the Auxiliarist’s concerns about COVID-19 exposure.

Ensure that every member reads and familiarizes themselves with the aforementioned guidance.

I want to thank the DIRAUX staff for facilitating the guidance update.

Respectfully,

Joseph Giannattasio
District Commodore
Fifth District – Northern Region
United States Coast Guard Auxiliary
