As we progress through the COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital to keep trade moving. To do that, we must ensure that crew can embark and disembark safely and efficiently.
ICS, IMHA and INTERTANKO have created two tools to help ship operators manage cases on board:
- A flowchart to help identify the process to follow when managing a larger number of suspect cases of COVID-19 on board; and
- A PCR testing procedures matrix to help identify what to do and when prior to boarding and if a suspect case is identified on the ship.
