Transport Canada has issued a new Ship Safety Bulletin 11/2021. This contains updated guidelines in respect of the movement of asymptomatic presumed non-COVID-19 carrying seafarers in the marine sector. It replaces Ship Safety Bulletin 28/2020.

The new Ship Safety Bulletin contains updated guidance on the meaning of quarantine in the context of domestic crew changes. The guidance in respect of shore leave for seafarers onboard foreign vessels at Canadian ports, terminals and marine facilities appears to have been relaxed. The period of leave has been increased from four to six hours and is no longer restricted to certain locations. There is also updated guidance on exemptions from quarantine for asymptomatic seafarers.

The bulletin is available on the Government of Canada website. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your usual club contact.
