The Port of Felixstowe remains open and fully operational.
Many of the changes we had already made to the way we operate, including reorganising quayside staff into segregated teams, facilitating home working where practical, introducing enhanced cleaning/hygiene routines, wearing face masks and implementing a suite of measures to enable 2 metre social distancing, are covered in the latest UK Government guidance on working safely during COVID-19. Safeguarding our employees and port users remains our priority and we will keep these measures under review as we move into the different stages of the crisis outlined by the Government.
Our dedicated workforce is continuing to ensure that we deliver for our customers on both quayside and landside operations. The number self-isolating has been on a downward trend since the end of March. This is now helped by the fact we are able to quickly arrange tests for any workers who display symptoms of Covid-19.
The Port of Felixstowe plays a critical role in supporting UK supply chains and we will ensure that it remains able to do so throughout this crisis.
We would like to thank you for your continuing support.
