Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. As this continues to evolve, please be aware that Casco Bay Lines continues to put the safety, health and well being of our passengers and crew as our top priority.
Casco Bay Lines is taking guidance from the Cumberland County Public Health District and Maine Centers for Disease Control on any operational changes that may be required due to the spread of the COVID-19. While no specific changes for public transit agencies have been recommended at this time, we have instructed our terminal and vessel personnel to routinely wipe down high touch surfaces as part of our ongoing regular cleaning schedules. Extra hand sanitizer dispensers and informational materials have been deployed in the terminal and on our vessels for our customers to use while traveling with us. We are well-stocked with cleaning supplies and have provided our staff with education and support related to COVID-19 including proper hand hygiene and cough etiquette.
More information, including links to resources provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are available here on our website.
