Fighter squadron is pulled from USS Gerald R. Ford after sailor tests positive for coronavirus

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — More than 100 members of a fighter squadron were kept behind as the USS Gerald R. Ford went underway Thursday after one of its sailors tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a Navy official.

The sailor, who tested positive Wednesday, is a member of the Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 213, which flies F/A-18F Super Hornet aircrafts and is based out of Naval Air Station Oceana, Va. The sailor, who has been in isolation since last week, was never aboard the aircraft carrier but the individual had been in contact with other squadron members who had been on the ship Tuesday ahead of it going underway, said Cmdr. Jennifer Cragg, a spokeswoman with Naval Air Force Atlantic. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/fighter-squadron-is-pulled-from-uss-gerald-r-ford-after-sailor-tests-positive-for-coronavirus-1.631753
