Sailors From Carrier Again Test Positive Upon Return

Talking Points Memo reports:

At least five sailors who had returned to the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier after a coronavirus quarantine have tested positive for the virus again, the Navy confirmed Friday.

“This week, five USS Theodore Roosevelt sailors who previously tested COVID positive and met rigorous recovery criteria, exceeding CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidelines, have retested positive,” the Navy said in a statement.

The sailors, who said the statement said were self-monitoring and adhering to “strict” social distancing protocols, developed flu-like symptoms and “did the right thing reporting to medical for evaluation.”
