a. Wear examination gloves, safety goggles and standard surgical mask.
b. Supplied with an Infrared Thermometer to check & diagnose the body temperature of any guest coming
on-board for any reason
i. Cut-off point for rejection of a Visitor: >= 37.5 °C or >= 99.50 °F
ii. Don’t forget! You have the moral and legal rights to reject any visitor above this body temperature for your
own crew safety!

c. Give a standard disposable examination gloves to be worn by the guest who shows normal heat
signs (37.00°C – 37.49°C)
d. give a standard surgical mask (no matter about its specifications) to be worn by the guest
e. Do not let any visitor to be on-board without above precautions and gears on even they have the safe
body temperature levels!
2. Do use disposable cups, plates etc. if you serve any drink or dish for your guest. Please call your steward
to exterminate the used disposals at a separate Medical Waste Bag. Do not forget to land-off this waste via
your “secure & reliable” agent at your convenient port.
B) How to keep safe interior of the life areas of your vessel;
1. Consider to prohibit or limit your crew to be on-shore
2. Use Sodium Hypochlorite Solution (3 to 6% - in common “bleach”) for surface cleansing within all common areas
including desks, and any probable touching locations.
3. If your believe your vessel is completely protected against the outside sources of the mighty virus spread, except
the gangway watch keeper, none of your crew has to wear breathing protection masks on-board.
4. Tell your crew to wash their hands with soap at least 20 seconds regularly. If washing is not available let them
use hand cleansing solutions with a concentrate of “at least 60% ethanol” after any suspicious contact.
C) What to do if you are suspicious about an infected crew?
1. Isolate the suspected crew(s) immediately
2. Give “ Pandemic Protection Kit*” to your attended crew who will solely contact with the suspicious patient(s)
3. Try to choose the attended crew among the youngest ones because of the higher immuno-protection levels
4. Also isolate your attended crew before you reach to shore
5. Call tele-medics for the medical advice and assistance after taking all above precautions

Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) advice for the public from WHO|
Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus
Wash your hands frequently
Wash your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Why? Washing your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water kills the virus if it is on your hands.
Practice respiratory hygiene
When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Why? Covering your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing prevent the spread of germs and viruses. If you sneeze or cough into your hands, you may contaminate objects or people that you touch.
Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever.
Why? When someone who is infected with a respiratory disease, like 2019-nCoV, coughs or sneezes they project small droplets containing the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Tell your health care provider if you have traveled in an area in China where 2019-nCoV has been reported, or if you have been in close contact with someone with who has traveled from China and has respiratory symptoms.
Why? Whenever you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing it’s important to seek medical attention promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Respiratory symptoms with fever can have a range of causes, and depending on your personal travel history and circumstances, 2019-nCoV could be one of them.
If you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within China
If you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within China, carefully practice basic respiratory and hand hygiene and stay home until you are recovered, if possible.
As a general precaution, practice general hygiene measures when visiting live animal markets, wet markets or animal product markets
Ensure regular hand washing with soap and potable water after touching animals and animal products; avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with hands; and avoid contact with sick animals or spoiled animal products. Strictly avoid any contact with other animals in the market (e.g., stray cats and dogs, rodents, birds, bats). Avoid contact with potentially contaminated animal waste or fluids on the soil or structures of shops and market facilities.
Avoid consumption of raw or undercooked animal products
Handle raw meat, milk or animal organs with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.
