WHAT'S NEW IN OPNAV N173A?
Changes to Webinars
Beginning in September 2021, the webinars will no longer be broadcast via DCS and will be conducted via Microsoft Teams.

Cancellation of Urinalysis Policy Update

The decision to resume testing aligns with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's announcement supporting a safe return to many activities halted during the pandemic. The briefing card with frequently asked questions about the NAVADMIN is available here. You can also read the full NAVADMIN 100/21 online.
