2021 Covid-19 Procedures


During the COVID-19 pandemic, GPIR Transportation Lines' focus is on the health and safety of our passengers and our staff. In accordance with Federal, State, and local regulations and guidance, and informed by industry best practices, following are some of the steps we will be taking to minimize risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus during the 2021 season. 

*Increasing cleaning and sanitizing, especially of high-traffic areas and frequently touched objects such as keyboards, doorknobs, and handrails 
*Utilizing electrostatic spray systems for surface disinfection on vessels. 
*Implementing health screening for passengers and employees, including non-contact temperature checks. 

*Requiring that all passengers wear face coverings at all times onboard vessels and inside facilities. There will be no exception to this rule, medical or otherwise. 
*Eliminating trash collection and recycling onboard vessels, to reduce possible viral transmission and exposure through solid waste.
*Continuing to follow our established method for contactless ticket purchasing and check-in. 

Our COVID-19 safety protocols include, but are not limited to, these procedures, and GPIR Transportation Lines may choose to modify or add to them at any time without notice.
