IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR ALL CRUISE SHIP CREW MEMBERS
We hope that this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well during these times of unpredictability and uncertainty. In light of the current global climate we want to inform you on the current situation around the Coronavirus pandemic, which was recently declared by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The companies in the cruise industry have made the difficult decision to suspend their operations for at least 30 days due to the travel restrictions, the critical situation in Europe and the national emergency that has been declared in the United States since continuing operations in the cruise sector has increased the risk of quarantines and medical detentions.
Bangkok Maritime Inc Response to COVID-19
In response to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, Bangkok Maritime is taking the necessary steps around the globe to protect our employees and continue to serve our clients and associates.
Managing Uncertainty – Planning for the Future
"Now is the time for strong leadership and early, resolute action if we are to flatten the curve and reduce the speed of contagion from the virus. That needs to be our primary priority right now, above all else. This is a healthcare crisis first, causing economic hardship in many industries and businesses, especially those that rely on social interactions as part of their day-to-day operations. If we mitigate the healthcare impact, we will alleviate the economic consequences.
We do not know how long this situation will last, or the significance of its impact, but we do know that with the right people and swift actions, we can manage this challenge and come out stronger in the end."
For, Bangkok Maritime Inc.
