UK-based crew member in isolation after testing positive for Coronavirus


The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company can confirm a UK-based crew member has tested positive for coronavirus.

The individual, who does not hold a passenger-facing role, had the test whilst off duty and has been placed in immediate isolation.

Contact tracing is underway and a handful of colleagues who the individual was in contact with are also self-isolating.

The Ben-my-Chree has already undergone an extensive deep clean and is being cleaned and disinfected on a daily basis.

The Steam Packet has clear policies in place for its crew to prevent Covid spread on both its vessels and at its ports.
