RMKS/1.  THIS MESSAGE UPDATES PARAGRAPH (7) IN U.S. NAVY COVID-19 STANDING 
GUIDANCE.  REF (A) IS CANCELLED.  WITH MORE THAN A YEAR OPERATING IN THE 
COVID-19 ENVIRONMENT, OUR SAILORS, CIVILIANS AND CONTRACTOR PERSONNEL HAVE 
ASSUMED PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY AND GAINED SIGNIFICANT EXPERTISE IN 
MITIGATING AND PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF THE DISEASE AS DEMONSTRATED BY 
ACHIEVING THE LOWEST SERVICE COVID-19 CASE COUNT AND HIGHEST VACCINATION 
RATES.
WE MUST CONTINUE TO PURSUE FULL VACCINATION AND APPLY BEST HEALTH PROTECTION 
MEASURES BOTH AT HOME AND AT WORK TO SUSTAIN AND IMPROVE UPON THIS 
PERFORMANCE.  COMMANDING OFFICERS ARE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HEALTH 
PROTECTION OF THEIR CREWS AND SHOULD APPLY THE GUIDANCE PROVIDED BELOW TO 
BEST FIT THEIR SPECIFIC OPERATIONAL SITUATION SUPPORTED BY THE MEDICAL 
COMMUNITY AND GUIDED BY THEIR CHAIN OF COMMAND.  IN THE ABSENCE OF OPNAV OR 
DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) GUIDANCE, FOLLOW THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL 
(CDC) GUIDANCE.
WIDESPREAD IMMUNIZATION, COMMAND ENGAGEMENT, CREW OWNERSHIP, AND INDIVIDUAL 
ACCOUNTABILITY ARE THE CORNERSTONES TO OUR SUCCESS TO DATE.  HEALTH 
PROTECTION MEASURES SUCH AS VACCINATION, THE CREATION OF A BUBBLE, FACE 
COVERINGS, PHYSICAL DISTANCING, STAYING OUT OF THE WORKSPACE WHEN FEELING ILL 
AND AGGRESSIVE SPACE CLEANING ARE THE GREATEST INFLUENCERS TO PREVENT AND 
ISOLATE COVID-19.  THE COVID-19 VACCINES AUTHORIZED BY THE U.S. FOOD AND DRUG 
ADMINISTRATION ARE SAFE, EFFECTIVE AND IN PARTICULAR, ARE VITAL TO PROTECTING 
RECIPIENTS FROM HOSPITALIZATION AND DEATH.  COMMANDING OFFICERS SHOULD MAKE 
EVERY EFFORT TO EDUCATE THEIR CREWS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF VACCINATION AND 
FACILITATE OPEN DISCUSSIONS WITH MEDICAL PERSONNEL IF THERE ARE QUESTIONS.  
DOCUMENTED COVID-19 CASES AMONG IMMUNIZED PERSONNEL ARE VERY INFREQUENT AND 
ALL CASES HAVE BEEN MILD TO MODERATE.
CONSISTENT WITH REF (F), TO DATE NONE OF THE MORE THAN 230,000 FULLY 
IMMUNIZED NAVY AND MARINE CORPS MEMBERS HAVE BEEN HOSPITALIZED.

2.  DEFINITIONS.  COVID-19 CASE, CLOSE CONTACT, INFLUENZA LIKE ILLNESS (ILI), 
ISOLATION, QUARANTINE, TESTING (DIAGNOSTIC, SCREENING, AND SURVEILLANCE), AND 
OTHER DEFINITIONS ARE AVAILABLE ON THE CDC WEBSITE.  THE FOLLOWING NAVY 
DEFINITIONS ARE PROVIDED:

2.A.  PATIENT (OR PERSON) UNDER INVESTIGATION (PUI):  AN INDIVIDUAL WITH 
SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19 WHO HAS A TEST RESULT PENDING OR WOULD HAVE BEEN TESTED 
HAD A TEST BEEN AVAILABLE.
ASYMPTOMATIC INDIVIDUALS QUARANTINED DUE TO CLOSE CONTACT WITH A COVID-19 
POSITIVE MEMBER ARE NOT CLASSIFIED AS PUIS.  ASYMPTOMATIC INDIVIDUALS BEING 
TESTED FOR COVID-19 ARE NOT CONSIDERED PUIS WHILE AWAITING TEST RESULTS.

2.B.  HIGH-RISK PERSONNEL:  THOSE INDIVIDUALS, DESIGNATED BY A MEDICAL 
PROVIDER, WHO MEET THE CDC CRITERIA FOR INCREASED RISK OF SEVERE ILLNESS 
HTTPS://WWW.CDC.GOV/CORONAVIRUS/2019-NCOV/NEED-EXTRA-PRECAUTIONS/
PEOPLE-AT-HIGHER-RISK.HTML.

2.C.  RESTRICTION OF MOVEMENT (ROM):  GENERAL DOD TERM FOR LIMITING PERSONAL 
INTERACTION TO REDUCE RISK TO THE HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELFARE OF A BROADER 
COHORT. PERSONNEL EXECUTING A ROM ARE CONSIDERED TO BE IN A DUTY STATUS AND 
ROM PERIODS WILL NOT BE COUNTED AS LEAVE.

2.C.1.  ROM-SEQUESTER:  U.S. NAVY TERM FOR PREEMPTIVE SEPARATION OF FORCES TO 
REDUCE RISK OF INFECTION WHILE ATTEMPTING TO ESTABLISH A COVID-FREE BUBBLE.

2.D.  BUBBLE:  TERM FOR INDIVIDUALS, UNITS OR INSTALLATIONS THAT HAVE 
ESTABLISHED LOW PROBABILITY OF COVID-19 INFECTION DUE TO CREW IMMUNIZATION 
LEVEL AND/OR COMPLETION OF 14 DAY ROM-SEQUESTER FOR NON-IMMUNIZED 
INDIVIDUALS.

2.E.  VACCINATED:  AN INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS RECEIVED THE FIRST SHOT IN A SERIES 
OF TWO SHOTS OF COVID-19 VACCINE.  WHILE NOT USED IN THE TRADITIONAL MEDICAL 
CONTEXT, THE TERMS VACCINATED AND IMMUNIZED WILL BE USED TO DIFFERENTIATE 
THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED PARTIAL OR FULL DOSES, RESPECTIVELY.

2.F.  IMMUNIZED / FULLY VACCINATED:  INTERCHANGEABLE TERMS FOR AN INDIVIDUAL 
WHO COMPLETED THE VACCINE SERIES AND IS CONSIDERED IMMUNE TWO WEEKS AFTER THE 
VACCINE SEQUENCE IS COMPLETE.  IMMUNITY DURATION WILL BE GUIDED BY CDC, BUT 
IS NO LESS THAN SEVEN MONTHS FOR THIS STANDING GUIDANCE.

2.G.  DEFERRED:  AN INDIVIDUAL WHO WAS OFFERED AN AUTHORIZED VACCINE, BUT

DECLINED OR WAS UNABLE TO RECEIVE IT FOR ANY REASON.  THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE 
ENCOURAGED AND ALLOWED TO CHOOSE, AT ANY TIME, TO RECEIVE THE VACCINE UNLESS 
MEDICALLY CONTRAINDICATED.  AFTER RECEIVING A VACCINE DOSE, AN INDIVIDUAL 
WILL NO LONGER BE LISTED AS DEFERRED.

2.H.  BUBBLE TO BUBBLE TRANSFER (B2BT):  TERM FOR MOVEMENT OF UNITS OR 
PERSONNEL FROM ONE BUBBLE TO ANOTHER VIA CONTROLLED MEANS.  A WIDE VARIETY OF 
MODES OR MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION CAN BE USED FOR B2BT.  THE KEY FACTOR IS 
THAT THE EVOLUTION IS CLOSELY CONTROLLED TO MINIMIZE RISK OF COVID-19 
EXPOSURE TO BOTH INDIVIDUALS AND UNITS WHO HAVE NOT COMPLETED A ROM-SEQUESTER 
DURING TRANSFER.

2.I.  HEALTH PROTECTION MEASURES (HPM):  TERM FOR MEASURES TAKEN TO DECREASE 
RISK OF COVID-19 IN AN OPERATIONAL SETTING.  THIS INCLUDES PHYSICAL 
DISTANCING, WEARING OF FACEMASKS, AND ENHANCED ENVIRONMENTAL CLEANING.  FULLY 
IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO WEAR FACEMASKS OR PHYSICALLY 
DISTANCE FROM OTHERS.  EXCEPTIONS ARE THAT FACEMASKS ARE STILL REQUIRED FOR 
ALL MEDICAL AND DENTAL PERSONNEL WHEN PROVIDING HEALTH CARE AND FOR ALL 
INDIVIDUALS UNDERGOING TRAVEL ABOARD PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO JOIN A CREW 
ALREADY UNDERWAY, REGARDLESS OF IMMUNIZATION STATUS.

3.  CLOSE CONTACTS AND SYMPTOMATIC PERSONNEL.

3.A.  CLOSE CONTACTS WHO HAVE BEEN FULLY VACCINATED AND INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE 
TESTED POSITIVE IN THE PAST THREE MONTHS DO NOT NEED TO QUARANTINE.
ASYMPTOMATIC PERSONNEL WHO ARE NOT IMMUNIZED AND ARE SUSPECTED OF EXPOSURE 
SHALL QUARANTINE IN ACCORDANCE WITH (IAW) CDC AND LOCAL MEDICAL GUIDANCE.

3.B.  SYMPTOMATIC PERSONNEL REGARDLESS OF IMMUNIZATION STATUS SHALL FOLLOW 
LOCAL MEDICAL AND CDC GUIDANCE ON WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU ARE SICK.

3.C.  A NON-IMMUNIZED PATIENT WITH SUSPECTED COVID-LIKE ILLNESS (CLI) OR ILI 
WHO HAS TESTED NEGATIVE FOR COVID-19 MAY RETURN TO WORK AFTER:  (1) AT LEAST
24 HOURS AFTER THE RESOLUTION OF FEVER WITHOUT THE USE OF FEVER REDUCING 
MEDICATION; (2) IMPROVEMENT IN SYMPTOMS AND; (3) AT LEAST 10 DAYS SINCE THE 
ONSET OF SYMPTOMS.  IMMUNIZED PATIENTS WITH SUSPECTED CLI/ILI SHOULD CONSULT 
THEIR MEDICAL PROVIDER BEFORE RETURNING TO WORK.

3.D.  COVID-19 CASES MAY CONTINUE TO TEST POSITIVE FOR UP TO THREE MONTHS DUE 
TO THE PRESENCE OF PERSISTENT NON-INFECTIOUS VIRAL FRAGMENTS AND THEREFORE 
EXEMPT FROM TESTING PROTOCOL FOR THREE MONTHS FROM THE EARLIER OF SYMPTOM 
ONSET OR FIRST POSITIVE TEST.  INDIVIDUALS WHO EXHIBIT NEW OR PERSISTENT 
SYMPTOMS DURING THAT THREE MONTH PERIOD SHOULD BE EVALUATED BY A MEDICAL 
PROVIDER.

3.E.  OUTBREAK INVESTIGATION AND CONTACT TRACING WORKFORCE TRAINING.  EACH 
COMMAND WILL MAINTAIN THE ABILITY TO EXECUTE CONTACT TRACING FOR ASSIGNED 
PERSONNEL BY HAVING AN APPROPRIATE NUMBER OF PERSONNEL TRAINED (NO LESS THAN
TWO) BASED ON UNIT IMMUNIZATION LEVEL.  NAVY E-LEARNING: CONTACT TRACING 
TRAINING FOR SAILORS AND MARINES CFHP-NMFSC-CTSM-01 OR TEST-OUT ASSESSMENT 
FOR CONTACT TRACING TRAINING FOR SAILORS AND MARINES CFHP-NMFSC-CTSMTA-01.

4.  DEPLOYED OPERATIONS

4.A.  PRE-DEPLOYMENT SCREENING.  SCREENING FOR ALL PERSONNEL WILL CONSIST OF 
AN ASSESSMENT OF EXPOSURE HISTORY, A REVIEW OF ANY PAST TESTING AND A 
THOROUGH EVALUATION OF THE MEMBERS RISK FACTORS FOR SEVERE ILLNESS FROM 
COVID-19.  THE DECISION TO DEPLOY A HIGH RISK INDIVIDUAL MUST BE MADE, AT A 
MINIMUM, BY THE COMMANDING OFFICER IN CONSULTATION WITH MEDICAL PROVIDERS.
MILITARY SEALIFT COMMAND (MSC) WILL MEDICALLY SCREEN CIVIL SERVICE AND 
CONTRACT PERSONNEL FOR DEPLOYMENT ON MSC VESSELS IAW EXISTING MSC 
INSTRUCTIONS AND CONTRACTS.  IMMUNIZATION STATUS SHOULD BE PART OF THE 
DECISION TO DEPLOY HIGH RISK PERSONNEL ALONG WITH THE PERCENT OF THE UNIT 
IMMUNIZED, THE PROXIMITY TO AN MILITARY TREATMENT FACILITY (MTF) OR AFLOAT 
MEDICAL FACILITY WITH COVID THERAPEUTICS AND ICU CAPABILITIES, AND MEDICAL 
PROVIDER CONSULTATION.

4.B.  PRE-DEPLOYMENT ROM-SEQUESTER.  ROM-SEQUESTER IS NOT REQUIRED FOR 
IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS ATTACHED TO SHIPS OR SUBMARINES, NOR FOR IMMUNIZED 
INDIVIDUALS TRAVELING BY AIRCRAFT UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY GCC AS MEANS 
OF RESPECTING HN LAW OR BY A MORE RESTRICTIVE DOD POLICY.  FOR NON-IMMUNIZED 
INDIVIDUALS ONLY, 14-DAY ROM-SEQUESTER WITH TEST-IN AND TEST-OUT IS REQUIRED 
PRIOR TO DEPLOYMENT.DURING ROM-SEQUESTER, CONDUCT ENHANCED DAILY PERSONNEL 
MEDICAL SCREENING.

4.B.1.  IAW REF (D), NON-IMMUNIZED PERSONNEL DEPLOYING OUTSIDE THE UNITED 
STATES NOT USING MILITARY/CHARTERED TRANSPORTATION WILL CONDUCT A 14-DAY ROM 
PRIOR TO DEPLOYMENT UNLESS COMBATANT COMMAND MANDATES IN-COUNTRY ROM.  IAW 
REF (B), NCC MAY DELEGATE TO FIRST FLAG OFFICER/SES IN CHAIN OF COMMAND THE 
AUTHORIZATION TO REDUCE THIS ROM TIMELINE TO AS FEW AS SEVEN DAYS IF 
OPERATIONALLY NECESSARY WITH A NEGATIVE PCR TEST ADMINISTERED ONE TO THREE 
DAYS PRIOR TO EMBARKATION.  INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE HAD COVID-19 IN THE PAST 
THREE MONTHS ARE EXEMPT FROM ROM.  IF TRAVELING OCONUS AND THE HOST NATION 
REQUIRES IN-COUNTRY ROM, CONUS PRE-DEPLOYMENT ROM-SEQUESTER IS NOT REQUIRED 
UNLESS THE HOST NATION OR COMBATANT COMMAND EXPLICITLY MANDATES BOTH.
IMMUNIZED AND NON-IMMUNIZED PERSONNEL MUST CONSULT FOREIGN CLEARANCE GUIDANCE 
FOR MOST CURRENT REQUIREMENTS APPLICABLE TO ALL TRAVELERS, AVAILABLE AT 
HTTPS://WWW.FCG.PENTAGON.MIL.

4.B.2.  ROM-SEQUESTER CONDUCTED ASHORE REQUIRES ISOLATION PER CDC GUIDANCE 
(IDEALLY SEPARATE ROOM, NO SHARED BATHROOM).
A SECOND TEST SHALL BE CONDUCTED ON OR AFTER DAY 14 FOR NON-IMMUNIZED 
PERSONNEL.  A NEGATIVE COVID TEST RESULT IS REQUIRED TO EMBARK AN OPERATIONAL 
UNIT IF NON-IMMUNIZED, OR IAW WITH NCC APPROVED COMMUNITY CONOPS (E.G., 
SSN/SSBN).

4.C.  UNDERWAY HEALTH PROTECTION MEASURES (HPM).  BASED ON A YEAR OF 
EXPERIENCE AND EXTENSIVE MODELING BY NAVY AND MARINE CORPS PUBLIC HEALTH 
CENTER INCORPORATING BASELINE NATURAL IMMUNITY, COVID PREVALENCE AND VACCINE 
EFFECTIVENESS WHICH IS CONTAINED IN REFS (E) AND (F), RECOMMEND UNDERWAY HPM 
IMPLEMENTATION AS FOLLOWS:
-- LARGE DECKS WITH MEDICAL CAPABILITY (LPD/LHD/LHA/CVNS) AFTER NON-IMMUNIZED 
INDIVIDUALS COMPLETE QUALITY 14 DAY PRE-DEPLOYMENT ROM AND HAVE A NEGATIVE 
PCR TEST PRIOR TO EMBARKING:
NCCS MAY RELAX HPM FOR ALL CREWMEMBERS ONCE UNDERWAY PROVIDED IMMUNIZATION 
RATE OF COMBINED CREW IS GREATER THAN 70%.  IF IMMUNIZATION RATE IS LESS THAN 
70%, NON-IMMUNIZED CREWMEMBERS MUST PRACTICE HPM FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS 
UNDERWAY.  IF NO CASES FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS, THEN NCCS MAY RELAX HPM.
-- SMALLER SHIPS OR THOSE WITH LESS ON-BOARD MEDICAL CAPABILITY (LHD/LHA/LPDS 
WITHOUT FLEET SURGICAL TEAM OR BOARD CERTIFIED MEDICAL OFFICER EMBARKED), 
AFTER NON-IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS COMPLETE QUALITY 14 DAY PRE-DEPLOYMENT ROM 
AND HAVE A NEGATIVE PCR TEST PRIOR TO EMBARK:  NCCS MAY RELAX UNDERWAY HPM 
FOR ALL CREWMEMBERS ONCE UNDERWAY IF CREW IMMUNIZATION RATE IS GREATER THAN 
80% (DUE TO LESS ONBOARD MEDICAL CAPABILITY).  IF IMMUNIZATION RATE IS LESS 
THAN 80%, NON-IMMUNIZED CREWMEMBERS MUST PRACTICE HPM FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS 
UNDERWAY.  IF NO CASES FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS, THEN NCCS MAY RELAX HPM.
-- FOR ALL UNITS REGARDLESS OF TYPE WHEN NON-IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS HAVE NOT 
COMPLETED PRE-DEPLOYMENT ROM (E.G., LOCAL OPS, GROUP SAIL OR C2X):  NCCS MAY 
RELAX UNDERWAY HPM FOR ALL CREWMEMBERS PROVIDED COMBINED IMMUNIZATION RATE IS 
AT LEAST 90%.  IF IMMUNIZATION RATE IS LESS THAN 90%, NON-IMMUNIZED 
CREWMEMBERS MUST PRACTICE HPM FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS UNDERWAY.  IF NO CASES FOR 
AT LEAST 14 DAYS, THEN NCCS MAY RELAX HPM.
-- HPM MEASURES MAY BE TEMPORARILY RELAXED WHERE OPERATIONALLY NECESSARY.
-- IT IS ALWAYS GOOD PRACTICE FOR ALL CREWMEMBERS TO PRACTICE HPM WHENEVER 
PRACTICAL REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS TO HELP PREVENT A WIDE VARIETY OF 
SHIPBORNE DISEASES.

4.C.1.  DISEASE SEVERITY AND VACCINES.  GIVEN FDA AUTHORIZED VACCINES PROTECT 
AGAINST DISEASE SEVERITY, EVEN IN THE VERY SMALL PERCENT OF PEOPLE WHO MAY 
POTENTIALLY STILL GET COVID-19 INFECTION, THE RISK OF HAVING TO MEDEVAC AN 
IMMUNIZED COVID-19 INFECTED INDIVIDUAL IS EXTREMELY LOW.  REDUCING THE 
LIKELIHOOD OF SEVERE ILLNESS IS A KEY OUTCOME MEASURE THAT SPEAKS TO THE 
ABILITY TO MAINTAIN OPERATIONS AT SEA WITHIN EXISTING MEDICAL CAPABILITIES.

4.D.  PENETRATING A BUBBLE.  SHIP RIDERS (E.G., CONTRACTORS, TECH REPS, 
INSPECTION TEAMS, ETC.), DIRECT SUPPORT PERSONNEL, AND ALL OTHERS ASSISTING 
COMMANDS PRIOR TO BUBBLE ESTABLISHMENT WILL ADHERE TO LOCAL FORCE HEALTH 
PROTECTION MEASURES.  WHEN INVOLVED IN MOVEMENT TO SEQUENTIAL COMMANDS, IT 
MAY BE ADVISABLE TO ROM-SEQUESTER NON-IMMUNIZED COHORTS, USE BUBBLE TO BUBBLE 
TRANSPORTATION, AND/OR TEST NON-IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS PERIODICALLY.
IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO ROM-SEQUESTER.  NCCS MAY REQUIRE 
NON-IMMUNIZED SHIP RIDERS PENETRATING AN ESTABLISHED BUBBLE TO COMPLETE A 14-
DAY ROM-SEQUESTER WITH TEST-IN AND TEST-OUT PRIOR TO EMBARKING DEPENDENT ON 
CREW IMMUNIZATION LEVEL.
A TEST IS NOT REQUIRED FOR PERSONNEL WHO HAVE RECOVERED FROM
COVID-19 WITHIN THE PAST 90 DAYS (DUE TO THE POSSIBILITY OF PERSISTENT 
POSITIVE RESULTS IN NON-INFECTIOUS PERSONS).
IMMUNIZED PCS AND SHIP RIDERS WHO ARE ASYMPTOMATIC DO NOT NEED TO CONDUCT ROM 
PRIOR TO EMBARKING A SHIP.  MITIGATION PLANS FOR NON-IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS TO 
PENETRATE AN ESTABLISHED BUBBLE WITHOUT A 14 DAY ROM-SEQUESTER AND/OR TEST 
DUE TO EMERGENT OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS MUST BE APPROVED BY THE COMMANDING 
OFFICER.

4.E.  PORT VISITS.  COMMANDING OFFICERS MAY ALLOW IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS ON 
UNITS MAKING PORT CALLS IN OVERSEAS SAFE HAVEN PORTS WHERE THERE IS U.S. 
PRESENCE AND BASE FACILITIES (E.G., GUAM, BAHRAIN, YOKOSUKA, ROTA, SASEBO) TO 
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF BASE SERVICES.  GEOGRAPHIC NCCS (DELEGABLE TO NUMBERED 
FLEET COMMANDERS) WILL CONTROL FOREIGN PORT VISIT OFF-BASE LIBERTY FOR ALL 
INDIVIDUALS IN COORDINATION WITH COUNTRY TEAMS AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES TAKING 
INTO ACCOUNT INDIVIDUAL AND CREW IMMUNIZATION STATUS, COUNTRY COVID 
PREVALENCE AND MISSION REQUIREMENTS.

4.F.  AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS.  COMMANDERS MAY NEED TO EXEMPT AIRCREW AND 
AIRCRAFT MAINTAINERS FROM THIS GUIDANCE TO MEET EMERGENT OPERATIONAL OR 
NATOPS CURRENCY REQUIREMENTS.  MITIGATION PLANS MUST BE APPROVED BY THE 
COMMANDING OFFICER.  FOR AVIATION UNITS EMBARKED ON SURFACE UNITS, MITIGATION 
PLANS WILL BE INCLUDED AND APPROVED AS PART OF THE OVERALL SHIP HEALTH 
PROTECTION PLAN.

4.G.  TESTING.  TESTING IS THE ONLY METHOD TO DETECT ASYMPTOMATIC 
TRANSMISSION WITHIN THE NON-IMMUNIZED FORCE.  CONSIDER SCREENING TESTS FOR 
NON-IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS DURING OFRP CYCLE TO IDENTIFY
COVID-19 EARLY AND TO BREAK THE TRANSMISSION CYCLE.  CONTINUOUSLY ASSESS THE 
INTEGRITY OF A BUBBLE THROUGH CLI/ILI SCREENING OF NON-IMMUNIZED PERSONNEL.  
PLATFORMS WITH TESTING CAPABILITY SHOULD EMPLOY SYMPTOMATIC TESTING 
(DIAGNOSTIC) FOR EVERYONE AND TARGETED CREW TESTING (SCREENING) FOR NON-
IMMUNIZED SAILORS.  ALL COVID-19 DIAGNOSTIC TESTS MUST BE ENTERED IN THE 
MEDICAL RECORD.
SCREENING AND SURVEILLANCE TESTS THAT ARE INDIVIDUALLY IDENTIFIABLE MUST BE 
ENTERED INTO THE MEDICAL RECORD.  DIAGNOSTIC POOLED TESTING UNDERWAY IS 
ALLOWED FOR MODERATE COMPLEXITY LABS USING BIOFIRE AND CEPHEID AND WILL ONLY 
BE CONDUCTED IN DIRECT COORDINATION WITH NAVAL HEALTH RESEARCH CENTER AND 
REQUIRES NOTIFICATION OF BUMED SURGEON GENERAL OR DEPUTY SURGEON GENERALS 
OFFICE BY THE FLEET SURGEON.

4.H.  POST-DEPLOYMENT.  IAW CDC GUIDANCE, NON-IMMUNIZED PERSONNEL RETURNING 
TO CONUS FROM DEPLOYMENT ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A NEGATIVE VIRAL TEST RESULT NO 
MORE THAN THREE DAYS BEFORE TRAVEL INTO THE U.S.; BE TESTED 3-5 DAYS AFTER 
ARRIVAL AND STAY HOME AND SELF-QUARANTINE FOR SEVEN FULL DAYS, EVEN IF THE 
TEST IS NEGATIVE.  POST DEPLOYMENT ROM AND TESTING IS NOT REQUIRED FOR 
PERSONNEL WHO HAVE RECOVERED FROM COVID-19 WITHIN THE PAST 90 DAYS (DUE TO 
THE POSSIBILITY OF PERSISTENT POSITIVE RESULTS IN NON-INFECTIOUS PERSONS), 
AND DOES NOT APPLY TO SHIPS, THEIR EMBARKED AIRCRAFT OR SUBMARINES RETURNING 
TO PORT PROVIDED THERE HAVE BEEN NO ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES OR POTENTIAL 
CONTACT WITH INFECTED PERSONNEL DURING THE LAST 14 DAYS OF DEPLOYMENT.NON-
IMMUNIZED INDIVIDUALS WHO DO NOT GET TESTED MUST STAY HOME AND SELF-
QUARANTINE FOR 10 DAYS AFTER TRAVEL.
NON-IMMUNIZED SERVICE MEMBERS REDEPLOYING FROM, ORTHROUGH, A FOREIGN COUNTRY, 
UPON ARRIVAL AT THE DESTINATION DOMICILE WILL ROM AT THEIR PERSONAL RESIDENCE 
(OR APPROPRIATE DOMICILE) FOR AT LEAST 10 DAYS WITHOUT TESTING OR AFTER AN 
APPROPRIATE RISK ASSESSMENT BY THE FIRST FLAG OFFICER IN THE CHAIN OF COMMAND 
FOR SEVEN DAYS WITH A NEGATIVE COVID-19 TEST WITHIN 48 HOURS PRIOR TO THE END 
OF THE SEVEN DAY ROM.  SERVICE MEMBERS REQUIRED TO ROM ARE RESTRICTED TO 
THEIR RESIDENCE AND MUST LIMIT CLOSE \CONTACTS FOR THE DURATION OF ROM.

4.H.1. IMMUNIZED PERSONNEL HAVE NO ROM OR TESTING REQUIREMENTS POST- 
DEPLOYMENT.

4.H.2.  AT THE COMPLETION OF DEPLOYMENT, MILITARY PERSONNEL WILL COMPLETE A 
POST-DEPLOYMENT HEALTH ASSESSMENT (DD FORM 2796) AND POST-DEPLOYMENT HEALTH 
REASSESSMENT (DD FORM 2900) IAW REF (D).

5.  ALL UNITS, STAFFS AND SHORE COMMANDS.

5.A. HPM.  FOLLOW LATEST DOD FORCE HEALTH PROTECTION, CDC AND STATE/LOCAL 
AREA GUIDANCE TO ENSURE THE HEALTH OF THE FORCE.

5.B.  SEE REF (J) NAVADMIN FOR LATEST GUIDANCE ON ADJUSTING HEALTH PROTECTION 
CONDITIONS AND BASE SERVICES.

5.C.  SEE REF (K) NAVADMIN UPDATES FOR LATEST GUIDANCE ON CONDITIONS BASED 
APPROACHES TO PERSONNEL MOVEMENT AND TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS.

6.  CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES.  COMMANDERS MUST ENSURE ROM AND MEDICAL SCREENING 
GUIDANCE GIVEN TO DOD CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES CAN BE APPLIED CONSISTENT WITH 
APPLICABLE CIVILIAN PERSONNEL LAW, REGULATION, AND POLICY.

6.A.  CONTRACTOR PERSONNEL.  THIS GUIDANCE DOES NOT ALTER, MODIFY, OR CHANGE 
THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ANY DOD CONTRACT.
COMMANDERS MUST ENSURE ROM AND MEDICAL SCREENING GUIDANCE GIVEN TO DOD 
CONTRACTOR PERSONNEL CAN BE APPLIED CONSISTENT WITH THE PERTINENT CONTRACT 
AND APPLICABLE PROCUREMENT LAW, REGULATION, AND POLICY.

7.  PROVISION OF CREW HEALTH INFORMATION, TESTING AND QUARANTINE.
NCCS WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO COMPLY WITH THE POLICY GUIDANCE IN REF (L) 
REGARDING HOST NATION COVID-19 QUARANTINE AND TESTING REQUIREMENTS FOR 
ARRIVING U.S. FORCES AND CIVILIAN PERSONNEL.

7.A.  SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY.  SOME COUNTRIES MAY REQUEST DETAILED INFORMATION 
ABOUT THE HEALTH OF THE CREW ONBOARD, INCLUDING TEST RESULTS, PROOF OF 
VACCINATION, ETC., AS A CONDITION OF ENTRY.  IT IS DOD AND DEPARTMENT OF THE 
NAVY POLICY TO PRESERVE THE SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY OF WARSHIPS, NAVAL 
AUXILIARIES, AND SOVEREIGN IMMUNE AIRCRAFT, INCLUDING PROTECTING CREW 
INFORMATION, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT POSSIBLE.  THE NAVY DECLARATION OF HEALTH 
(NAVMED 6210/3) IS THE ONLY AUTHORIZED MEANS FOR PROVIDING HEALTH INFORMATION 
OF THE CREW TO FOREIGN OFFICIALS.  PROVIDING ANY INFORMATION BEYOND THE 
NAVMED 6210/3 AS A CONDITION OF ENTRY EXCEEDS THE U.S. REQUIREMENTS UNDER 
INTERNATIONAL LAW AND CONTRARY TO THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH POSITION.  SHOULD A 
HOST NATION REQUIRE INFORMATION BEYOND THE NAVMED 6210/3 AS A CONDITION OF 
ENTRY, CONSULT WITH THE APPLICABLE GEOGRAPHIC NAVAL COMPONENT COMMAND (GNCC).  
SEE REF (M) FOR ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE.

7.A.1.  COMMANDING OFFICERS, MASTERS, AND AIRCRAFT COMMANDERS SHALL COMPLY 
WITH ALL DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN QUARANTINE REGULATIONS FOR PORT ENTRY, AND MAY 
DOCUMENT SUCH COMPLIANCE ON THE NAVMED 6210/3.  COMMANDING OFFICERS, MASTERS, 
AND AIRCRAFT COMMANDERS SHALL NOT PROVIDE ANY INDIVIDUAL OR COLLECTIVE 
MEDICAL DATA OR COPIES OF HEALTH RECORDS, NOR ANY SUPPLEMENTARY OR LOCALLY 
DEMANDED HEALTH FORMS, AND SHALL NOT GRANT ACCESS TO SHIP OR CREW HEALTH 
RECORDS OR ALLOW THE SAME TO BE SEARCHED OR INSPECTED BY HOST NATIONS.

7.A.2.  SERVICE MEMBERS AND THE CREWS OF NAVAL AUXILIARIES WILL NOT SUBMIT TO 
HOST NATION COVID-19 TESTING AS A REQUIREMENT OF PORT ENTRY.  NOR SHALL HOST 
NATION OFFICIALS BE PERMITTED TO REQUIRE PRODUCTION OF, OR TAKE A PHOTOCOPY 
OF, SERVICE MEMBERS PROOF OF VACCINATION AS A CONDITION OF PORT ENTRY.

7.A.3.  ANY ACTION THAT MAY CONSTITUTE A WAIVER OR POTENTIAL WAIVER OF 
SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY MUST BE COORDINATED WITH OPNAV N3N5 PRIOR TO ACTION BEING 
TAKEN.  IAW REFS (L) AND (M), AND NAVY POLICY, GNCCS SHALL PROVIDE AS LITTLE 
INFORMATION AS POSSIBLE IN ORDER TO MEET MISSION ESSENTIAL OPERATIONAL 
REQUIREMENTS AND SHOULD NOT SUBMIT TO ANY REQUIREMENT THAT THE U.S. WOULD NOT 
REQUIRE OF SIMILAR VISITORS (E.G., THE U.S. DOES NOT REQUIRE HN TESTING OR 
PROOF OF VACCINATION FOR THE CREWS OF VISITING WARSHIPS OR NAVAL 
AUXILIARIES).  GNCCS WILL DETERMINE IN ADVANCE WHICH HOST NATIONS WILL 
REQUIRE SUCH INFORMATION AND SHIPS MAY BE DIVERTED AS NECESSARY, TO AVOID 
PROVIDING INFORMATION CONTRARY TO THESE REQUIREMENTS.

7.B.  OPNAV STRONGLY DISFAVORS PERMITTING HOST NATION TESTING OF PERSONNEL.  
HOST NATION TESTING MAY NOT MEET U.S. HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS, MAY 
UNNECESSARILY EXPOSE OUR PERSONNEL TO FOREIGN DATA COLLECTION, MAY PROVIDE 
UNVERIFIABLE AND/OR INACCURATE RESULTS, AND ESTABLISHES POOR PRECEDENT FOR 
FUTURE HEALTH EMERGENCIES.WHEN GNCCS DETERMINE THAT ACQUIESCING TO HN TESTING 
IS NECESSARY FOR MISSION ACCOMPLISHMENT, GNCCS WILL CONSULT WITH BUMED OR 
FORCE SURGEON TO ENSURE THAT SUCH HN TESTING MEETS ESTABLISHED INTERNATIONAL 
STANDARDS OF CARE.  ADDITIONALLY, ACQUIESCING TO HOST NATION TESTING IS 
CONTRARY TO U.S. PRACTICE FOR SIMILAR VISITORS.

7.C.  PERSONNEL EXITING THE PIER/AIRPORT FACILITY.  IF REQUIRED TO EXIT THE 
PIER/AIRPORT FACILITY AND ENTER THE HOST NATION, THE GNCCS, IN CONJUNCTION 
WITH THE COUNTRY TEAM, MAY ASSERT THAT ONLY VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS WILL BE 
ALLOWED WITHIN THEHOST NATION, BUT MAY NOT PROVIDE THE PERCENTAGE OR TOTAL 
NUMBER OF THE CREW THAT HAS BEEN VACCINATED.  OTHER ALLOWABLE MEASURES 
INCLUDE SUBMITTING TO A TEMPERATURE SCAN UPON ENTERING/EXITING THE PIER OR 
THE AIRPORT.  THESE ASSERTIONS AND MEASURES SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED FOR 
PERSONNEL SOLELY USING PIER/AIRPORT FACILITIES IN SUPPORT OF PORT VISITS 
(E.G., INSIDE AN ECP OR SAFE-HAVEN ARRANGEMENT) AND NOT ENTERING THE HOST 
NATION.

7.C.1.  AIRCRAFT COMMANDERS SHALL COMPLY WITH FOREIGN CLEARANCE GUIDE 
REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTRY INTO THE HOST NATION (E.G., MOVING OUTSIDE OF AN ECP 
OR SAFE-HAVEN ARRANGEMENT).

7.C.2.  U.S. WARSHIPS AND NAVAL AUXILIARIES.  HOST NATION TESTING OF 
INDIVIDUALS FORENTRY INTO THE HOST NATION FOR MISSION ESSENTIAL OPERATIONAL 
REQUIREMENTS, BUT NOT LIBERTY, CAN BE APPROVED BY THE GNCC.  SHIPS ENTERING A 
HOST NATION UNDER SUCH CONDITIONS SHOULD LIMIT THEIR SHORE PARTY TO MISSION 
ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL.  GNCCS SHOULD MAKE EVERY ATTEMPT TO GAIN HOST NATION 
PERMISSION TO HAVE THE NAVY CONDUCT ONBOARD TESTING USING NAVY EQUIPMENT 
PRIOR TO ENTRY TO AVOID SUBJECTING U.S. PERSONNEL TO LOCAL HEALTH TESTING.  
GNCCS ACQUIESCING TO HN TESTING FOR MISSION ESSENTIAL OPERATIONAL 
REQUIREMENTS SHOULD NOTIFY OPNAV N3N5.  NOTIFICATION SHOULD INCLUDE 
DESCRIPTION OF HN REQUIREMENTS.
OPNAV N3N5 APPROVAL IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO HOST NATION TESTING FOR QUALITY OF 
LIFE (LIBERTY) PORT VISITS.  UNITS REQUESTING LIBERTY IN PORTS REQUIRING HOST 
NATION TESTING MUST ROUTE A REQUEST VIA THE CHAIN OFCOMMAND TO OPNAV N3N5.  
REQUESTS SHALL CONTAIN JUSTIFICATION FOR SELECTING A PORT REQUIRING HOST 
NATION TESTING, TESTING REQUIREMENTS OF THE HOST NATION, WHY AN ALTERNATE 
PORT IS NOT FEASIBLE, AND IMPACT TO MISSION IF THE REQUEST IS DENIED.
REQUESTS SHOULD ALSO INCLUDE AN ASSESSMENT OF THE MEDICAL RISK, LEGAL RISK, 
COLLECTION AND PRIVACY RISK, ANTITERRORISM/FORCE PROTECTION RISK, MISSION 
RISK, AND COUNTRY TEAM COORDINATION.
NOTIFICATIONS AND REQUESTS SHOULD BE SENT VIA RECORD MESSAGE TRAFFIC.

7.D.  GNCCS WILL ENSURE APPROPRIATE TRAINING ON THE PROTECTION OF HEALTH 
INFORMATION AS PART OF OPSEC/PERSONAL SECURITY AND ON THE IMPORTANCE OF 
VIGOROUSLY DEFENDING THE ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY OF WARSHIPS AND THE 
SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY OF OTHER STATE VESSELS AND AIRCRAFT.

8.  TESTING.  REF (G) IS CANCELLED AND REPLACED WITH THE FOLLOWING GUIDANCE.

8.A.  ASYMPTOMATIC TESTING REQUESTS AND COORDINATION.
