With the state lift­ing most pan­dem­ic-relat­ed restric­tions on June 30, our fer­ry sys­tem has changed the following: 

  • No longer enforc­ing COVID-19 capac­i­ty limits
  • No longer advis­ing peo­ple com­ing aboard in a per­son­al vehi­cle to remain
    in their vehicles.
  • No longer requir­ing toll­booth employ­ees to use self­ie sticks with self-swipe cred­it card read­ers (they may con­tin­ue to if they choose).
  • No longer clos­ing off some seat­ing or turnstiles.
  • Slow­ly reopen­ing drink­ing foun­tains, but many onboard won’t be reopened
    until the ves­sel’s potable water is turned back on.
  • Face masks are required only in indoor areas in com­pli­ance with the Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Prevention’s pub­lic trans­porta­tion order.
