Operations on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer are being conducted following strict COVID-19 mitigation protocols, prioritizing the health and safety of onboard personnel, while still meeting expedition goals and NOAA’s mission needs. Prior to boarding the ship, all mission personnel sheltered in place for seven days and received negative COVID-19 tests. While on the ship, all personnel are required to practice social distancing and wear masks in public places. Exceptions to COVID-19 protocols on the ship may be made if necessary to ensure personnel are fully able to conduct safe navigation of the ship and other operations, such as equipment launch and recovery.
