The US Navy reports that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt has returned to the sea for the first time since arriving in Guam on March 27. The ship left the Naval Base in Guam on May 21 and entered the Philippine Sea to conduct carrier qualification flights as its next step towards a return to active duty. The aircraft carrier received worldwide attention in March when it became the first US Navy vessel reporting an outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. After arriving in Guam, more than 4,000 crewmembers were moved into quarantine and isolation on shore while in a highly controversial action the carrier’s captain was relieved of his command.
