Newport News Shipbuilding on Friday confirmed another positive case of the coronavirus (COVID 19).
Jennifer Boykin, president of NNS, confirmed the new case in Facebook post Friday.
This is the company’s fourth positive case in less than a week.
The individual who tested positive is considered Navy personnel and works at Building 4931-2, Model Outfitting Facility Bay 1, in the Mid-Yard area, according to the shipyard’s website.
“Because they numbers are expected to increase, we’re only providing the most relevant information about the confirmed cases,” Duane Bourne, spokesman for NNS wrote in a text message.
WYDaily asked if the company was only going to provide the employee’s job and job site, as opposed to when the person was last on company property, if they self-reported and if the individual was currently quarantined or isolation.
