That is pretty good distance from the flight deck (if they jumped from there) to the water.  A man who would jump from a flight deck, if not done properly would wind up with there balls in there mouth

Ship's lockdown horrors?  This is a photo of an Aussie submarine.  Only one day out to sea, they already have a hard on.  That's the last time I pick up my soap again.

It was probably easier for submariners as they had their partners with them.  It may be worse now that they let women serve.

Unfortunately, similar situations are being reported onboard USN ships.  A couple weeks ago, USS ROOSEVELT CVN-71 departed San Diego for another deployment.  The carrier had to come to a full stop due to a "jumper", man overboard.  I don't believe he or she was found.  Remember, this was the same carrier pulling into Guam due to COVID outbreak several months ago. 

Personally, I don't think I could manage my sanity.  I would go psycho and be kicked off the ship wearing a straight jacket.

You served on a sub, correct?  Or maybe that was some others.  I would think sub crews would have similar issues and need to be screened appropriately.  And have a large supply of straight jackets!

I was on subs, don't think Master Chief was, but we are screened.  One of the Corpsman (Doc) we had, would show all the new guys how to cut there wrist without leaving a mess, the new guys thought he was crazy, need to say, no one attempted.

I was a Submariner as well. I don't recall suicide being a major concern in the Sub Force when I was in. I don't know how they would even try to handle a Covid breakout on a sub.

I was surface navy, frigate and missile cruisers.  They were easy targets for the bubbleheads.

The names were an Urban Myth, of course Terry.  It was Tom the Cabin Boy and Seaman Stains simply didn't exist although Master Mates was claimed to be Master Bates.  The writer successfully sued a couple of UK newspapers for printing these names as fact.
