Description: Ship personnel, whether working on ships engaged in cargo transport or fishing, typically work in close contact environments and are therefore susceptible to the transmission of SARS-CoV-2. A COVID-19 outbreak presents special risks for crew and officers making extended voyages without calling at any port and lacking access to shoreside medical facilities. Such an outbreak puts their safety and well-being at risk and may affect their ability to safely navigate and operate the ship (1).
In this document, the term “ship personnel” refers to individuals who work on one of two types of vessels:
• a cargo ship that is not a passenger ship
• a fishing vessel that is any ship or boat, of any nature whatsoever, irrespective of the form of ownership, used or intendedto be used for the purpose of commercial fishing (2) of fish, whales, seals, walrus or other living resources of the sea,defined in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (3).
