CentrePort Operational Control Plan - Alert Level 1

CentrePort is operating according the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Maritime Border) Order (No. 2) Amendment Order 2020 and as per the CentrePort Control Plan (see links below).

  • Please observe hygiene practices - washing of hands, sneezing/coughing into elbow.
  • Maintaining physical distancing
  • Using PPE (clothing, masks, gloves) as an optional measure appropriate to the circumstances
  • CentrePort is implementing an appropriate cleaning and disinfecting programme
  • All persons on site to sign a register to facilitate contact tracing. This register is held at reception.
