Waterfront sees increase in COVID cases

Late last week the bulk carrier, Vega Rose, had several crew members onboard that tested positive for COVID-19 while the vessel was alongside at Westshore Terminals.  The infected crew remain in a quarantine facility arranged by the Public Health Agency. The vessel was eventually put to an anchorage in English Bay and has since departed Vancouver. Individuals that were potentially exposed to the virus by the infected crew have been either quarantined or required to self-isolate.  Other unrelated COVID-19 infections have been reported within the ILWU and in all the cases the Waterfront Industry Response Protocols have been followed by the terminals, and this includes keeping the affected workers off duty until they are cleared by medical officials.
