Navy League 2021: Newport News Shipbuilding reports progress on carrier Kennedy as yard returns to mask requirements

by Michael Fabey

Huntington Ingalls Industries' Newport News Shipbuilding highlighted recent progress on aircraft carrier John F Kennedy (CVN 79) on 2 August, as shipyard President Jennifer Boykin confirmed the facility was again implementing mask requirements.

“We're back to masks right now,” Boykin said during a 2 August briefing at the Navy League 2021 Sea-Air-Space exposition.

The company is taking those measures to track recent recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), due to spikes in the Delta variant of Covid-19, she said.
