Navy sailors back at home after spending seven weeks in isolation off coast

While they weren’t greeted with the usual fanfare of ship homecomings, nearly 500 sailors on three Royal Canadian Navy ships returned to their home port at CFB Esquimalt Friday after seven weeks in isolation off the coast of Vancouver Island.

HMCS Calgary, HMCS Regina, each with a crew of 225, and the smaller maritime coastal defence vessel HMCS Brandon, with 45 sailors, have been cruising through domestic waters in a self-quarantine exercise to ensure they’re ready to deploy while staying free of COVID-19.

As inconvenient as it was for the sailors and their families, seems like smart thinking on behalf of Navy leadership
