PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- A Sailor assigned to a San Diego, California-based squadron, a Sailor assigned to an Everett, Washington-based ship, and a Sailor assigned to a Pearl Harbor, Hawaii-based shore command tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

All three Sailors are currently isolated at their residences, restricted in movement, and receiving appropriate supportive care in accordance with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Guidelines.
