There are a lot of questions about the promotion boards that were paused. Here is the update from the recently released consolidated COVID-19 NAVADMIN:
3.R. Selection Boards. Reference (ag) provided initial guidance on postponement of selection boards. The MyNavy HR Team is actively working the plan to resume selection boards in light of positive trends related to COVID-19. A tentative plan is expected to be released by mid-May 2020 and will include the execution of all promotion, advancement and administrative selection boards by the end of calendar year 2020. Navy remains committed to a fair and impartial selection board process for all eligible Sailors and is also committed to the health and wellness of Sailors who serve as members on these selection boards. Once the board schedule is finalized, details will be promulgated to the Fleet.
