The Estonian Government announced the implementation of restricted measures in efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including the postponing of cruise ship calls in its ports until May 1, 2020.
In light of this precautionary decision, Port of Tallinn stated that the Management of Tallinna Sadam estimates that this decision will not significantly affect the Group’s financial results, as the cruise season begins in April and the restriction concerns cancellation of only four cruise ship calls.
In addition, the port states that they have not received any more cancellations from cruise ships, but they will continue closely monitoring the situation.
Recently, the port informed that it placed thermal cameras at passenger terminals A and D to scan incoming passengers for fever, amid COVID-19 precautions.
Overall, the majority of the ports globally have issued restrictions and precautionary measures, in efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus and protect the health of the people.
