Navy: USS Carl Vinson sailor death unrelated to COVID-19

BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — The U.S. Navy has reported a sailor has died onboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, due to causes unrelated to the coronavirus. The Kitsap Sun reported that spokeswoman Miranda Williams said the first-class petty officer was found unresponsive in his work center on Saturday. Williams says the officer did not exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 and appeared in good health. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is investigating the death. Navy officials say the death comes after the USS Carl Vinson emerged from dry dock earlier this month after a $367 million overhaul at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. As of Monday, the ship had no confirmed coronavirus cases.
