Commercial Vessel Passengers and Crew Must Wear Masks Onboard

DLNR is sending a reminder that commercial vessels, regardless of size, are required to ensure that all their passengers and crew wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This follows the recent Presidential Executive Order and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s requirement for wearing masks on all domestic modes of public transportation on both land and sea. The only exemptions to this are private conveyances, that aren’t used for commercial purposes, as well as certain military operations. To view more:
