San Francisco Chronicle: Coronavirus again hits Roosevelt carrier as sailors test positive two days after new deployment

San Francisco Chronicle: Coronavirus again hits Roosevelt carrier as sailors test positive two days after new deployment. “The warship returned to San Diego on July 9 after an ill-fated six-month deployment that led to a massive coronavirus outbreak infecting more than 1,250 of its crew. One sailor died from COVID-19 complications. The crew had spent about three months in the homeport. During its challenging earlier deployment, the Roosevelt spent about a month in Guam trying to stem the outbreak, isolate sailors and sanitize the ship.”
