The Truman is staying away from land to avoid the coronavirus.


WASHINGTON— The USS Harry S. Truman will remain at sea in the Atlantic Ocean in an attempt to protect its sailors from the coronavirus, the Navy announced Monday.
The aircraft carrier, and the ships accompanying it as part of its carrier strike group, will remain at sea to be ready to deploy if called upon, according to the 2nd Fleet in Norfolk, Va.
“The ship is entering a period in which it needs to be ready to respond and deploy at any time,” Vice Adm. Andrew Lewis, commander of the 2nd Fleet, said in a prepared statement. “Normally we can do that pierside, but in the face of [the coronavirus pandemic], we need to protect our most valuable asset, our people, by keeping the ship out to sea.”
