    Two sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt have tested positive for COVID-19 while the ship was conducting training off the coast of California and have been taken off the ship to self isolate, a U.S. Navy spokesman said Friday.

    The Navy quickly put in place new procedures for ships preparing to go to sea on lengthy deployments that have prevented similar episodes. The new rules include restricting crews to their ships, while in port, for at least two weeks and undergo regular screening.

    And when at sea Navy ships are only allowed to make ports of call in a select number at five locations with Navy facilities that are categorized as "safe havens".
