Title: No more physical fitness assessments for 2020, Navy says
Post by: OceanBonfire on July 09, 2020, 19:57:29
The Navy is cutting physical fitness tests for the remainder of the year amid concerns about the spread of COVID-19, after already canceling the spring cycle of the physical fitness assessment in March.

Organized or group physical training will also remain suspended, although some exemptions apply for recruit training or unit mission training requirements.

However, the Navy will start permitting sailors to conduct mock PFAs if they need to regain advancement and retention eligibility — provided local, installation and other COVID-19 guidelines are in place. Limitations include keeping mock PFAs to no more than 10 people and conducting temperature checks.
