Project Announcement: Evaluation of the Navy's Plans and Response to the Coronavirus-Disease-2019 Outbreak Onboard Ships (Project No. D2020-DEV0SI-0127.000)


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in May 2020. The objective of this evaluation is to determine whether the Navy has implemented policies and procedures to prevent and mitigate the spread of infectious diseases, such as coronavirus-disease-2019 (COVID-19), on ships and submarines. In addition, we will determine whether mitigation measures that are effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19 were implemented across the fleet. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
