Update on COVID-19 Situation

Marine Atlantic has been advised that a second employee has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual, who is currently isolating at home, was part of the same shift as the previously infected employee. The public health agencies in both Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador continue to take the lead on contact tracing and the public health investigation. Marine Atlantic is providing support and assistance wherever possible.

The MV Atlantic Vision will enter the schedule departing North Sydney early this evening, as the MV Blue Puttees remains unavailable for service. We will continue to monitor this situation and make any additional operational adjustments as required.

This is a challenging time for our employees and their families, and we will continue to work with them and provide support during this difficult period.
