Port of Halifax and COVID-19

So far the Port does not seem to be directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Ships are arriving and departing and the Port and its terminals are operating. Government regulations are summarized here:

I doubt that any public pronouncements would be made if the disease is detected in ships, ships' crews or port workers, but some unusual shipping activity might appear.

As for Shipfax I will continue to watch the harbour as much as I can, without coming into contact with other humans, and report on interesting movements. These might be fewer than normal, and there may be a few more posts dredged up from the archives.

Since I am in the high risk category for acquiring the disease due to age and health history, I am self-isolating, and will certainly not be taking any chances. Therefore Shipfax posts may have more words than pictures for the foreseeable future.
