Isle of Man-based crew member tests positive for COVID-19


The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company can confirm an Island-based crew member has tested positive for COVID-19.

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 has been in contact with are also self-isolating.

The Steam Packet Company has clear policies in place for its crew to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on both its vessels and at its ports. The Ben-my-Chree is being deep cleaned and disinfected on a daily basis.
