NAS Patuxent River COVID-19 Information

Naval Air Station Patuxent River is tracking the COVID-19 pandemic and working with tenants and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) to keep our population safe. The following resources may be helpful to anyone looking for information on our operations here, and on COVID-19 in general.


MWR Program Update

NAS Patuxent River is currently reassessing MWR programs and services under HPCON Bravo Plus. While the command determines the safest way to expand services to DoD retirees, eligible civilians, and other patrons, we ask for the public's patience. NAS Patuxent River seeks to provide the most services to as many guests in a safe manner.
