Think you might have COVID-19? Department of the Navy civilians, who are not otherwise beneficiaries, may be evaluated and tested at military treatment facilities. You must have symptoms, known exposure to COVID-19 within the preceding 14 days, a request from your command on letterhead and a copy of the March 13 SECNAV memo. Evaluation and testing will follow the same process as for the existing beneficiary.
