How Coronavirus Is Changing Coast Guard Boot Camp

2 472
The COVID-19 crisis is changing the way future Coastguardsmen are trained at the Coast Guard Training Center in Cape May, NJ. According to the Training Center's Commanding Officer Capt. Kathy Felger, there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the Training Center. Due to the crisis, the Coast Guard has implemented a 14-day "Restriction of Movement" period for incoming recruits. After that, they resume their remaining six weeks of training, but with physical distancing implemented into various aspects of training and life at the training center. All visitors are prohibited from attending graduation ceremonies, but the events are streamed live online.

Well, unfortunately boot camp looks like a joke now. I went thru in 2016 and it was much different than this. Papa 192.

I think the social distancinng made it easier to avoid tripping over in crowded training sessions but it makes the concept of this so morbid. Graduation is streamed and makes it look like covid 19 is tearing humanity apart, literally and figuratively.
