The container ship ZIM Vancouver arrived off Halifax February 5 and as of today (February 15) it is still there. The Port of Halifax website shows an original ETA of February 11 and a new arrival date of February 23. That 14 day interval looks very much like a quarantine period, but there has been no official mention of that, nor would I expect one. The launch Halmar visited the ship on February 10.
ZIM Vancouver was built by Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co in Dalian, China in 2007. The 39,906 gt, 50,532 dwt ship has a capacity of 4250 TEU. It carried the name Pearl River I from 2007 to 2012, and has been a regular on ZIM's ZCA service since 2019, but also called here, for ZIM, as Pearl River I in 2010 and 2011.
I have posted about the ship on this blog many times before:
