We are pleased to share with you that the COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for Commercial Maritime Settings in Washington State is now completed and posted to the DOH site. This document provides public health guidance for maritime settings on minimizing the frequency and severity of COVID-19 outbreaks to protect the health of workers and passengers while continuing operations. Because vessels are congregate settings, public health guidance for the general public is not always applicable; this document is intended to be used as a resource and reference document for commercial maritime settings.
