RMKS/1.  This ALNAV supersedes ALNAV 044/20, This ALNAV provides an update 
and guidance to Department of the Navy (DON) personnel and commands on 
domestic and international travel restrictions, and is subject to additional 
guidance provided by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).  
Modifications to ALNAV 044/20 are limited to paragraph 4.  The COVID-19 
outbreak continues, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 
reporting sustained community spread in the United States.  This ALNAV 
supersedes the portions of reference (g) regarding travel restrictions.  
Reference (h) is hereby cancelled.

2.  Effective 20 April 2020, reference (a) is in effect, cancels references 
(b), (c), and (d), and reissues travel restrictions guidance for all 
Department of Defense (DoD) personnel and commands.

3.  All DON personnel, and their families, including active, reserve, and 
civilian personnel whose travel is government-funded will stop movement, both 
internationally and domestically, while reference (a) is in effect.

4.  Except as provided below, this stop movement applies to all official 
travel, including but not limited to, temporary duty (TDY) travel; 
government-funded leave travel; permanent duty travel, including Permanent 
Change of Station (PCS) travel; and travel related to Authorized and Ordered 
Departures issued by the Department of State.  For DON Service Members only 
local leave is authorized.  Local leave for military members will be in 
accordance with Service policy, which may be informed by local community 
conditions.  DON civilian employees are strongly encouraged to avoid personal 
leave outside the local area.  Upon return from approved leave outside the 
local area, DON civilian employees may be asked to telework or exercise leave 
options as appropriate.  The DON may continue hiring actions, but may only 
onboard civilian employees in the local commuting area and civilian employees 
whose travel to the local commuting area is not government -funded.  DON 
leadership will ensure the contents of this directive are clearly 
communicated to those affected by these travel restrictions.
    a.  Personnel traveling under the following circumstances are exempt from 
these restrictions:
        (1) Travel associated with uniformed personnel recruiting and 
accessions activities, to include accessions; basic training; advanced 
individual training; and follow-on travel to the first duty station.  The 
Navy and Marine Corps will notify the Assistant Secretary of the Navy 
(Manpower & Reserve Affairs) prior to significantly reducing or suspending 
recruiting; accessions; basic training; or advanced individual training.
        (2) Travel by patients, as well as their authorized escorts and 
attendants, for purposes of medical treatment.  Travel by medical providers 
for the purposes of medical treatment for DoD personnel and their families is 
also authorized.
        (3) Travel for Global Force Management (GFM) activities (defined as 
deployments/redeployments ordered in the GFM Allocation Plan, including 
Service internal rotations to support, and TDY used to source ordered 
capabilities).  Such travel will be coordinated between the Combatant 
Command, the Joint Staff, and the appropriate Service.  All GFM-scheduled 
deployments /redeployments of U.S. Navy vessels and embarked units and 
personnel is authorized, provided they are in-transit and have met the 14-day 
restriction of movement provided for under reference (f), and any applicable 
subsequent guidance.
        (4) Travel by authorized travelers who departed their permanent duty 
station and are awaiting transportation, and have already initiated travel 
(including intermediate stops), are authorized to continue travel to their 
final destination on approved orders.
        (5) Travel by authorized travelers whose TDY ends while this 
directive is in effect.  Such travelers are authorized to return to their 
permanent duty stations.
        (6) Travel authorized by the Commander, U.S. Transportation Command 
(USTRANSCOM), to continue execution of the Joint Deployment and Distribution 
Enterprise as required to project and sustain the Joint Force globally.  This 
includes forces (aircrews, vessel crews, and mission essential personnel) 
ordered on prepare-to-deploy orders alert status, air refueling, global 
patient movement, mortuary affairs support, inland surface, sea and air 
sustainment missions, support to other U.S. Agencies, as approved by the 
SECDEF, and moves of personnel and equipment that support USTRANSCOMs global 
posture requirements.
        (7) Travel by individuals pending retirement or separation.
        (8) Travel by those under authority of a Chief of Mission and 
authorized by that Chief of Mission.

5.  Waivers may be granted for compelling cases where the travel is:  (1) 
determined to be mission essential; (2) necessary for humanitarian reasons; 
or (3) warranted due to extreme hardship.  Waivers are to be done on a case- 
by -case basis, shall be limited in number, and shall be coordinated between 
the gaining and losing organizations.  Approval authority for waivers is 
delegated to the Commandant of the Marine Corps and the Chief of Naval 
Operations, for military and civilian employees under their jurisdiction.
This authority may be further delegated in writing, but not below the level 
of General Officer, Flag Officer, or Senior Executive Service member or 
equivalent in the travelers chain of command or supervision.

6.  As prescribed in reference (e), eligible DON family members and non - 
emergency civilian employees may depart as part of Authorized or Ordered 
Departure by exception only.

7.  Individuals traveling under an exemption or exception, including those 
under an Authorized or Ordered Departure, are subject to the travel screening 
protocols as provided in reference (f) and any applicable subsequent 
guidance.  All travel orders must document the exemption or exception under 
which the travel is authorized.

8.  These actions give preeminence to the safety and security of our 
personnel, their families, and our communities.  During this period of travel 
restriction, the DON will take several measures to enhance traveler safety.
Each DON organization, as applicable, will take immediate action to:
    a.  Establish pre- and post- travel screening and reception procedures 
for all authorized travelers as provided in reference (f) and any applicable 
subsequent guidance, to include providing Service Members or civilian 
employees information regarding prescribed actions for them and their family 
members, given their particular circumstances;
    b.  Establish a means of communication with all personnel throughout the 
reception process until they are allowed to resume their normal duties;
    c.  Use military or DoD contracted end-to-end travel using aircraft or 
other conveyance for DoD-sponsored travelers to the greatest extent 
practical;
    d.  Inform all travelers of their responsibility to contact their gaining 
organization in advance of travel and to keep the organization updated on 
their travel itinerary;
    e.  Document within travel orders the exemption or waiver under which the 
travel is authorized; and
    f.  When practicable within operational requirements, consider either in 
-place assignment extensions or the applicability of waivers for PCS moves 
for uniformed personnel with school-age dependents in order to minimize 
school year disruption and education costs.

9.  Released by the Honorable James E. McPherson, Acting Secretary of the 
Navy.//
