Sailors assigned to USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) continue to exercise COVID mitigations throughout the ship’s Safe Haven Liberty port visit at U.S. Naval Base Guam.

Since the majority of the USS Ronald Reagan team has remained sequestered ashore, aboard ship and at sea for more than 100 days, the wear of masks and social distancing will not be required by the crew while in open air off-ship. Members will continue to be screened daily for symptoms of COVID-19 throughout and following the port visit.

During the ship’s time in port, Sailors continue to safely take part in recreation and morale activities within the designated beach and pier liberty areas, with no physical interaction with base personnel or anyone not part of the ship’s crew.

To maintain the Safe Haven and preserve the ship’s COVID-free bubble, local support personnel made required supply deliveries to the pier prior to the ship’s arrival and the pier was properly sanitized before being opened to the crew.

The Navy has safely executed Safe Haven liberty on Guam for 7th Fleet ships and will continue to take measures to protect the health of our force and maintain readiness of our units to answer national tasking.
