Subject: Temporary Restrictions on Crew Shore Leave Rescinded

 

 

This notice rescinds the temporary restrictions specified in Public Information Notice 20-005 dated March 23, 2020 that were implemented to address the public health emergency and community spread of COVID-19.

 

Crew shore leave processing and inspection will now return to previously established procedures.

 

At this time, crew sign-offs (D-2) will still be reviewed and granted if the crewmember has direct and continuous travel out of the United States, the crewmember is not exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, the crewmember has valid travel documents, and there is no other restriction on the crewmember’s travel.

 

Please note, due to evolving travel restrictions worldwide, this activity is subject to change on short notice. A trade notice will be sent if CBP Houston/Galveston Area Port implements any major changes.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black">Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo has issued an order mandating that businesses in the county must require customers wear masks to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. The order goes into effect Monday, June 22.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black">Employees and customers over the age of 10 must wear a mask or face covering, stay 6 feet apart from other customers and staff, and cannot enter a business if they are feeling ill.
