First COVID-19 case confirmed at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor

On Thursday, Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor confirmed its first positive test for COVID-19 from a second-class petty officer assigned to Naval Special Warfare.

According to a Navy press release, the individual is currently isolated on base and restricted in movement in accordance with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Guidelines. The other members of the group who were in close contact with the sailor are also quarantined on base out of an abundance of caution and remain in close contact with medical professionals.

“U.S. Special Operations Command and the Navy are committed to taking every measure possible to protect the health of our force,” the release states. “We remain in close coordination with local agencies, base tenant commands, and public health authorities to ensure the well-being of our personnel and the local community.”

When asked if the affected individual was a Navy SEAL, NSWC Public Information Officer Matthew Stroup said he could not comment on the sailor’s Naval rate.
