NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — In response to the coronavirus closures, Newport News Shipbuilding announced that they will implement a liberal leave policy.

The leave is designed to allow employees time to prepare and arrange any family care plans necessary.

The liberal leave begins with the third shift on Sunday, March 15 and extends through the end of second shift Tuesday, March 17.

The shipyard is working to prepare work schedule adjustments and additional leave options in the event that this becomes long-term.
