Subject: Coronavirus Awareness

Good Afternoon All,

With the recent outbreak of coronavirus and possible threats associated we wanted bring awareness to the issue. There will be additional information distributed as we receive it.

As a reminder, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) requires the master of ships destined for a U.S. port to report immediately any death or certain illnesses among the ship's passengers or crew. See this link for additional guidance. https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/cargo/reporting-deaths-illness/index.html. Below is the list of illnesses as well as signs and symptoms that require reporting to the CDC:

                •Quarantine-able Diseases (both suspected or confirmed) listed in the President’s Executive Order: cholera, diphtheria, infectious, tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, viral hemorrhagic fevers, severe acute respiratory syndromes, and novel influenza viruses.

                •Signs and symptoms of serious disease or of public health interest included in the Federal Regulations: ◦(A) Fever (has a measured temperature of 100.4 °F [38 °C] or greater; or feels warm to the touch; or gives a history of feeling feverish) accompanied by one or more of the following:

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾skin rash,

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾difficulty breathing or suspected or confirmed pneumonia,

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾persistent cough or cough with bloody sputum,

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾decreased consciousness or confusion of recent onset,

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾new unexplained bruising or bleeding (without previous injury),

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾persistent vomiting (other than sea sickness),

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾headache with stiff neck;

OR

                ◦(B) Fever that has persisted for more than 48 hours; OR

                ◦(C) Acute gastroenteritis, which means either:

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾diarrhea, defined as three or more episodes of loose stools in a 24-hour period or what is above normal for the individual,             or

                                <span-family:"Segoe UI Emoji",sans-serif"> ◾vomiting accompanied by one or more of the following: one or more episodes of loose stools in a 24-hour period, abdominal cramps, headache, muscle aches, or fever (temperature of 100.4 °F [38 °C] or greater); OR

                ◦(D) Symptoms or other indications of communicable disease, as the Director may announce through posting of a notice in the Federal Register. (Check CDC webpage for additional reportable diseases and reportable information requirements). 

Some questions that should be asked of the foreign crews prior to arrival include:

1. Is the crew healthy?

2. Does anyone need to seek medical attention?

3. Has any of the crew traveled to or from the Wuhan, Hubei Province or the Shanghai Metropolitan areas since mid-December?

We appreciate your assistance with this. As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our office at the numbers below or command center at (508)457-3211.

Respectfully,
