SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The Navy announced today it closed its Training Support Command center in San Diego after a third sailor with ties to the school tested presumptive positive for the novel coronavirus.
Two students and an instructor at the school, along with another sailor in the San Diego region stationed on the USS Boxer, have tested presumptive positive for the illness, according to the Navy.
The latest sailor with ties to the school tested positive Saturday, and the center was closed that day, but the Navy did not announce the case until today. That sailor is stationed aboard the USS Essex and had been attending a course at Naval Base San Diego since Feb. 6.
"The individual is currently isolated at home and restricted in movement,'' according to a Navy statement.
