COVID Outbreak Leaves Navy Combat Ship Stranded In Guantanamo Bay

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A COVID outbreak aboard a Navy combat ship has forced it to remain in port in Cuba.

An unspecified number of the USS Milwaukee's crew is in isolation aboard the ship at naval station Guantanamo Bay.

Navy officials have not determined whether the highly-transmissible omicron variant is to blame.

A Navy spokesperson said all 105 crew members were fully immunized, but did not mention how many are currently infected.
