Received from BAR Pilot President Michael Miller:
Good morning all! Please find attached our Coronavirus Risk Management Plan. This is a fluid document and may be revised and updated as warranted.
We are taking measures to reduce risk, keep our pilots, crew and families safe as well as keep commerce moving with little to no interruption.
As you know, our communal living situation on the pilot stations and daily exposure to ships coming from all parts of the world, makes this very challenging.
We will continue to work with our governmental agencies, health and medical experts and maritime parters to minimize impacts.
We realize this is a very stressful time for everyone and we all need to be vigilant, smart and aware!
Please reach out with any questions, thoughts or comments. Feel free to distribute the attached as you see appropriate.
All the best,
