Coronavirus (COVID-19): focus on maritime passenger carriers

➡️ Disinfecting ships.
The maritime or inland waterway carrier is now required to carry out at least once a day disinfectant cleaning of the spaces on the ship that have received passengers.

➡️ Inform passengers.
It must also inform passengers, in particular by means of on-board signage, of the hygiene and social distancing measures, known as "barriers", including the obligation for passengers to keep at least one metre away from other passengers.

➡️ Good to know.
Unless it is technically impossible to do so, it is up to the carrier to organise separation and social distancing on board between passengers. It must also take all appropriate measures to limit contact between crew and passengers.

➡️ Washing hands.
When a ship does not have a soap and water supply, it must be provided with hydroalcoholic gel.

➡️ Long journeys.
For ships operating international routes or routes lasting more than 2 hours, passengers must present, when boarding, one or more documents to justify the reason for their journey, accompanied by a declaration on their honour of this reason. Failure to do so shall result in denied boarding.

➡️ Freight transport.
The sound accompaniment of a freight vehicle may not be refused by the sea carrier.
