USS MONTANA Commissioning – Potential COVID-Related Requirements (posted 4/6/22)

The USS Montana Committee wants to let those planning to attend the official U.S. Navy commissioning ceremony for the USS MONTANA on June 25 that some COVID-related requirements could be in effect.

We understand that the principal requirement for those attending last weekend’s commissioning commemoration for the USS DELAWARE was evidence of vaccination accompanied by a photo ID. (A photo ID is expected to be required in any event.)

At our request, the Navy commissioning team has asked the appropriate Navy health officials that we be informed as soon as possible about any requirements for the MONTANA commissioning. If evidence of vaccination is required, we hope to be able to let attendees know soon whether it must be a vaccination card, or whether it might be a digital or photocopy on a cell phone or other device.

We also expect that more information will be included in mailed invitation packets.
