Public safety is our top priority.
The Port of Astoria is currently working with federal, county and city partners to address COVID-19 concerns and to prepare for any eventualities that may arise as a result of identified cases. We are coordinating with the US Coast Guard (USCG), US Customs & Border Protection, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), cruise lines, and local partners to address COVID-19.
Cruise ships visiting the Port of Astoria in the spring of 2020 arrive exclusively from domestic locations and no vessels come directly from impacted areas. The Port’s 2020 Cruise Ship Schedule reflects all cruise ships calling on the Port of Astoria for the year.
The Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) has implemented preventative measures for all cruise lines to limit potential exposure. Visit the CLIA website for more information about how cruise lines are addressing passenger and crew safety.
The USCG has also issued a Marine Safety Information Bulletin with guidance on reporting symptomatic passengers or crew. The USCG reviews passenger manifests to document the travel history of vessel passengers and crew. If the USCG determines that a person has traveled to China within the last 14 days, they are subject to protocols including mandatory quarantine by the federal government.
The Clatsop County Public Health website has updated public safety information related to COVID-19.
The Port of Astoria will provide periodic updates as needed, which will be available on the Port’s website.
