There are other directives that came down about navigation / bridge watchstanding as well, in his message, mostly revolving around the bridge. He also is enforcing the circadian watch rotation to ensure bridge teams have adequate rest, and ordering that mo-boards be run and extra monitoring be added for any contacts within a certain CPA.

This is already is most of them(all that I’ve seen), but the yards reported at varies.
