As we celebrate this Independence Day we thank those past and present who defended and continue to fight for our freedom.

Freedom we love and enjoy each day but realize it is not free. The sacrifice is great and you give willingly.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all our service members who are deployed around the world and the families who remain behind in support.

Thank you!

RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN updates policy in references (a) through (d) and is
intended to provide tools and guidance for the safe execution of a Physical
Fitness Assessment (PFA) as we emerge from the restricted Coronavirus
Disease
2019 (COVID-19) environment. This NAVADMIN specifically:
a. Provides a plan to conduct the Calendar Year 2021 (CY2021) PFA (1
July to 31 December 2021) to include the transition to a new and improved
Physical Readiness Information Management System 2 (PRIMS-2).
b. Provides additional guidance on conducting the PFA in the COVID-19
environment, including the use of masks.
c. Provides answers to frequently asked questions.
d. Expands postpartum PFA exemption from 9 months to 12 months.
2. PFA Implementation Plan
a. To assist commands in executing this PFA cycle, we created Physical
Readiness Program (PRP) Guide 10, which explains how to conduct the CY2021
PFA. Updated guides are available on the MyNavy HR PRP website, at
https://www.mynavyhr.navy.mil/Support-Services/21st-Century-Sailor/Physical-
Readiness/.
b. PRIMS-2 will be online in September 2021. PRIMS-2 has been designed
to provide greater ease of use for Command Fitness Leaders (CFL) and better
connectivity with associated human resources systems. CFLs/Assistant
Command
Fitness Leaders (ACFLs) will enter all PFA documentation/results, with the
exception of PARFQ data, into PRIMS-2 when available for use.
c. As a reminder, Sailors are required to complete a Periodic Health
Assessment (PHA) and if required, a Deployment Health Assessment (DHA) prior
to commencing a Physical Readiness Test (PRT) or physical conditioning. As
COVID-19 has impacted PHA and DHA completion, commands are strongly
encouraged to consider their annual PHA and DHA completion rates when
scheduling the command PFA. Commands may schedule multiple PFA periods
during the cycle to accommodate PHA and DHA completion by Sailors.
3. Additional Guidance to Conduct the CY2021 PFA
a. Preparation. Since the official announcement on the new PRT
modalities (forearm plank and 2000-meter row) in references (a) and (b),
Sailors have been strongly encouraged to practice and prepare for the CY2021
PFA, but commands should use this entire PFA window to ensure adequate
notification and allow for preparatory training and readiness assessment
prior to execution of the PRT.
b. Scoring of Plank Modality. Since the plank is a new mandatory
modality, the score for the plank will not be included in their final score.
Medically cleared Sailors will participate in the plank modality and should
give it their best efforts as we will use scores to validate our scoring
tables.
c. Mask Use During PFA. CFLs/ACFLs shall conduct official BCAs and
PRTs
as outlined in PRP Guides 4, 5, 10 and 15. In line with Guide 15, fully
vaccinated Department of Defense (DoD) personnel (who are at least two weeks
beyond their final dose) are no longer required to wear a mask indoors or
outdoors at DoD facilities. All DoD personnel should continue to comply
with
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance regarding areas
where masks should be worn. Personnel who are not fully vaccinated should
continue to follow applicable DoD mask guidance when conducting BCA and use
social distancing when performing PRT events. PRP Guide 15 will be updated
as COVID-19 guidance changes and contains mask guidance. Sailors may unmask
when actually performing PRT modalities. Note: If local requirements for
masks are more or less restrictive, local requirements take precedence.
d. Records and Data Management
(1) CFLs are required to retain original written documentation
(notes, worksheets, Body Composition Assessment (BCA) and PRT Score sheets,
etc.) of official command PFAs and Fitness Enhancement Program for a period
of five years and in line with current personal identifiable information
(PII) policy.
(2) All official PFA forms can be downloaded on the PRP Website
forms section: https://www.mynavyhr.navy.mil/Support-Services/21st-Century-
Sailor/Physical-Readiness/Forms/ to include the revised PARFQ (NAVPERS
6110/3) and PRT Score Sheet (NAVPERS 6110/11).
(3) CFLs should refer to PRP Guide 10 for roster maintenance upon
PRIMS-2 release.
4. Reponses to Fleet Feedback. The following items are provided for
clarification to frequently asked questions:
a. Excellent or Above Performance Validation. All Sailors must
participate in the CY2021 PFA cycle. Sailors who pass the BCA within the
Navy age-adjusted standards and score an overall excellent low or better
(with no single event lower than good low) on the PRT modalities consisting
of the push-ups and cardio options only are eligible to be exempt from
participation in PRT Cycle 1-2022. Forearm plank scores will not to be used
in the calculation. In order to validate, Sailors must also be within BCA
age-adjusted standards in PFA Cycle 1-2022.
b. Consecutive PFA Failures. Due to CY2020 PFA Cycle being excused,
PFA
failures prior to 2021 will not be used in determining future consecutive
failures. For clarification:
(1) If a Sailor failed PRT Cycle 2-2019 and the official CY2021 PFA
Cycle, it will not count as two consecutive PFA failures.
(2) However, going forward, if a Sailor fails the official CY2021
PFA
Cycle and PFA Cycle 1-2022, this will be two consecutive failures and member
will be subject to adverse administrative action.
c. Fitness Report/Evaluation Guidance. In line with reference (f),
enter the one-letter code for the result of each official PFA conducted in
the reporting period in block 20. Due to CY2020 PFA Cycle being excused,
the
one-letter code *N* is to be used if the reporting period includes a PFA
Cycle in 2020. Format for block 20 must be from oldest to most recent PFA
performed during the reporting period. For example, *NNP* in block 20 and
*PFA: 20-1/20-2/CY2020* in block 29 indicates that the member was excused
for
CY2020 PFA Cycle and passed the CY2021 PFA Cycle.
d. Preparing for the upcoming PFA. CFLs/ACFLs should be conducting
command group physical training and BCA spot checks while following social
distancing guidelines and preparing Sailors for the upcoming PFA
proactively.
Another useful tool is the Official Navy PFA App, which is available for
download from the App Store.
5. Postpartum Policy Change. Effective 1 July 2021, pregnant and
postpartum
Sailors are exempt from participating in the PFA, to include BCA and PRT,
from the time a pregnancy is confirmed by a Health Care Provider (HCP) until
the end of 12 months (vice previous 9 months guidance) following a qualified
birth event (QBE) in line with PRP Guide 8. This change allows postpartum
Sailors time to fully recover in a healthy manner prior to being required to
meet fitness and body composition standards.
a. Postpartum Sailors will be required to participate in a wellness
(unofficial) PFA between six to nine months postpartum, following a QBE as
defined in line with reference (e). The intent of this new policy is to
assist postpartum Sailors return to PFA standards and provide commanding
officers (CO) visibility on their health and fitness level.
(1) Postpartum Sailors will obtain a medical clearance form (NAVMED
Form 6110/4) by HCP or Authorized Medical Department Assessment prior to
participating in the wellness PFA. If not cleared to participate, a
postpartum Sailor will be rescreened as appropriate prior to participating
in
the wellness PFA.
(2) Upon receiving medical clearance, postpartum Sailors will
participate in a wellness PFA. If a postpartum Sailor passes the wellness
PFA, they can return to command/unit physical training. If a postpartum
Sailor fails to screen, they will be provided postpartum nutrition and
fitness resources to assist with their postpartum recovery.
b. Pregnancy and Postpartum Physical Training resources will be
available in July 2021 to assist Sailors. These resources will include
information on pregnancy/postpartum nutrition and a safe physical training
program complete with recommended exercises and contraindicated exercises.
These resources will be available on the MyNavy HR Website
https://www.mynavyhr.navy.mil/Support-Services/21st-Century-Sailor/Physical-
Readiness/
6. Contact the Physical Readiness Program Office for additional information
a. For policy-related questions via e-mail at PRP(at)navy.mil.
b. For PRIMS-related questions via e-mail at PRIMS(at)navy.mil.
c. For policy or PRIMS-related questions via phone at (901)
874-2210/DSN

7. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or canceled,
whichever occurs first.

Today marks the 79th anniversary of the Battle of Midway, the U.S. Navy & Nation’s most significant naval victory. It remains one of the most important American naval victories of World War II. Midway was an incredibly strategic location; the Imperial Japanese Navy planned to use it to secure influence in the Pacific. The Japanese had not lost a naval battle in 50 years, & nearly destroyed the American fleet just 6 months earlier in an attack on Pearl Harbor.

American military and intelligence forces worked together to defeat the Japanese at Midway. Code-breakers were able to decipher Japanese naval code, allowing American leaders to anticipate Japanese maneuvers. The U.S. Navy was then able to launch a surprise attack on the larger Japanese fleet in the area. The Battle of Midway turned the tide of the war. Japanese and American naval powers were roughly equalized.

Today, we honor the 307 U.S. Navy Sailors who died during the Battle of Midway and helped to set a course for victory in the Pacific. Our Sailors’ strength and resilience at Midway were a perfect illustration of the fighting spirit of our #USNavy Sailors today.
