Frequently Asked Questions: https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/covid-19-basics/faq

CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html

USCG: https://www.uscg.mil/Coronavirus/

CBP: https://www.dhs.gov/coronavirus

Not related to the Pandemic, any off signing crew with contracts of 1 year or less and/or first time arriving in the U.S. are required to be escorted and attended to by guards from ship to airport/hotel. This requirement is at Customs and Border protection discretion. Crew must be on airplane departing while ship is in port.  In case crew cannot depart, then guards will be required at all times while in the U.S.  This is subject to Customs approval on a case by case basis.

 

While there have been few (if any) confirmed positive crew members arriving in the U.S. via ship, there have been vessels delayed entry into U.S. ports for not providing timely submissions of attestation letters where required.  Just a friendly reminder to ensure that this information is being transmitted to USCG well in advance of expected POB, in order to prevent any significant delays with entry into port, thank you.

 

Terminals and maritime facilities carrying out due diligence at their berths to limit the spread of the virus to crew and shore side personnel by limiting any direct contact with personnel.  In some cases, temperature checks, no paperwork exchanges, only via e-mail, crew not being allowed to depart while at their terminals. Gangways to be raised/removed when shore personnel leave ship during operations. Limiting inspectors, gaugers etc. from entering terminal buildings.
