Limited access to medical and family support resources in Key West FL present unique challenges not normally faced in most CONUS Coast Guard assignments.

Additional guidance and updates to OCONUS screening requirements can be found in reference B and C.
     b. The designated Entry Approval Point for all assignments for Sector Key West Florida units will be Base Miami Beach, FL.
