WHO Guidance for Managing Covid-19 Cases or Outbreak Onboard Ships


The Club would like to draw to Members’ attention that the World Health Organization (WHO) has just released 'An implementation guide for the management of Covid-19 on board cargo ships and fishing vessels'. The target audience of this guide includes port operators and ship operators.

The guide is recommended for use with WHO’s Handbook for management of public health events on board ships. The purpose of this handbook is to assist competent authorities at the local level to manage potentially internationally significant public health events at ports.

For further information, please get in touch with your usual Club contact.
