Navy installations in Hampton Roads are being ordered to move to Health Protection Condition Level (HPCON) Charlie starting Wednesday due to the increase in both the number of COVID-19 cases and the positivity rate among the local military and civilian populations.
Military personnel in Hampton Roads must limit travel to and from their homes to their place of work, with stops only for essential services such as food, medicine and child care. Dining in at restaurants is prohibited, but take-out is allowed.
Military personnel are prohibited from using off-base services such as gyms and barbershops, but they are allowed to use those facilities on base.
Participation in team sports, going to amusement parks and attendance at parades or other public celebrations is also prohibited. Social gatherings in Sailors’ homes may not include more than 10 guests who don’t live there.
