What additional measures is CalMac taking to help keep customers safe?
At CalMac are following all the latest guidance of the Scottish Government, Transport Scotland and Health Protection Scotland regarding COVID-19 - here are some of the measures we are taking to help protect one another, our crew and the communities we serve safe:
Recommending passengers continue to wear your face covering in our ports, offices and indoor areas of our ferries.
Hand sanitiser is available in our ports and on our vessels with information posters on all vessels and in all ports to remind our customers about the importance of regular and thorough hand hygiene.
High touch surfaces are being cleaned frequently with specialist equipment.
Please keep your distance from others, wherever possible. And, support fellow passengers who are wearing a Distance Aware shield or lanyard by being respectful of their space. Distance Aware is a voluntary scheme, set up by the Bevan Commission and supported by Scottish Government. Find out more.
The latest Covid-19 safety advice is included within our safety briefings, prior to every sailing and reminders are communicated at regular intervals during the passage, as well as on our website and social media channels.
We all need to play a role in the ongoing response to Covid-19. We are asking our customers to ensure they play their part by ensuring they are aware of all the latest Government advice - including hand hygiene and the continued recommended use of face coverings.
