MWR COVID updates as of 11-3-20

MWR OVERALL
As NAVSTA Newport enters into an updated HPCON status, MWR activities will slowly begin to 
resume operations.  Initially these will be heavily restricted in nature, with gradual 
expansion to follow. Patrons can expect limitations and requirements that may include things 
such as wearing of masks, health and temperature screenings, usage restrictions, etc.  Your 
Newport MWR team is excited to get back to providing services for our patrons, and we ask 
for your patience and understanding as we slowly work through the reset process.  Specific 
program updates will be posted on both our social media accounts and website, so we 
encourage everyone to stay tuned.

AUTO SKILLS CENTER
Auto Skills Center Bays will open by reservations only.  Reservations must be made 24 hours 
in advance and can not be made the day of.  To make a reservation, call the Coasters Harbor

Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m., two bays and one lift.  This does

CHILD & YOUTH PROGRAM
CYP programs are preparing to expand capacities as the base transitions to HPCON Bravo.  
The focus continues to be on COVID Mission Essential Personnel.

For families not currently enrolled who are seeking care:
- We are not currently accepting new enrollees.  You can still register for a future spot 
on militarychildcare.com

.  Once we can accept new enrollees they will be taken off of this 
list via the standard CNIC priority system.

- Exceptions to the policy for new enrollees may be requested on a temporary basis based 
on mission critical needs.  Please contact our front desk at (401) 841-4562 if you need 
more information.

The CYP team is continuing to work diligently to ensure a safe, positive environment for 
your children – and we look forward to seeing more of them back soon!
