BREAKING: Hampton Roads Navy installations shift to HPCON Charlie

NORFOLK, Va. – Navy installations in Hampton Roads are being ordered to move to Health Protection Condition Level (HPCON) Charlie tomorrow.

The order issued today by Rear Adm. Charles W. Rock, Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, follows an increase in both the number of COVID-19 cases and the positivity rate among the local military and civilian populations.

Installations in the region had been in HPCON Bravo, a less restrictive level, since Sept. 23.

The return to HPCON Charlie means 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 not allowed, but take-out is authorized.

Military personnel are prohibited from using off-base services such as gyms and barber shops, but may continue 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.

“The health and safety of our Navy family is our number one priority,” Rock said. “We’ve been fighting this virus for a long time, but we’ve still got some more work to do and can’t give in to fatigue. As we enter the holiday season, it’s more important than ever that we look out for each other and ensure our Sailors’ mental health and resiliency remains strong. Check in with one another often and take time to recharge.”

Travel restrictions associated with HPCON Charlie do not apply to personal leave and liberty travel outside of the local area for Navy service members, who must first receive approval from their commanding officers in accordance with Navy regulations. Sailors with specific questions about leave should contact their chain of command.

Amphibious Construction Battalion TWO

This past week our Gatorbees and members of Naval Beach Group teamed up with the U.S. Army’s 7th Transportation Brigade for a Command Post Exercise, or CPX.

During the CPX, participants practiced moving equipment to and from the beach, exercising the joint logistics over-the-shore mission in preparation for JLOTS '21. Despite a turbulent year, the Navy's mission never stops, and we look forward to continuing to exercise our unique capabilities!

Great photos from Detachment Delta’s BITE last week.

On July 14th and 15th ACU 4 participated in a BITE (Beach Integrated Training Exercise) with ACU 2, NBG 2, and BMU2 at Fort Story. This is an advanced exercise that provides coordinated training with the main focus being on primary mission capabilities. Detachment Delta underwent this complex training to build proficiency and prepare them for deployment. They continue to do an amazing job and show what it really means to be “Above and Beyond”!
