Class of 2024 Admissions COVID-19 Update

Parents and Volunteer Leaders:

The following message is from Dean Bruce Latta ’78, USNA Admissions. Please share with your 2024 appointees/candidates and the 2024 families you are in touch with. Thank you for your support and help to disseminate this information.

“The United States Naval Academy Office of Admissions continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely. Based on what is currently known, the vast majority of young people recover without medical issues. In this context, there are no plans to deny admission to individuals who are diagnosed with COVID-19 and recover. If your healthcare provider recommends being tested, we strongly encourage you to follow their advice, without worry that your testing will impact your ability to accede as a midshipman.”
