Burgas, Bulgaria (PortSEurope) April 16, 2020 – Strict measures for the non-proliferation of the COVID-19 virus have been introduced in the port of Burgas since the beginning of the emergency. Employees are given personal and disposable protective equipment, depending on their nature of work. The business day begins with a strict entry filter – thermometry and disinfection, preventing people with signs of viral illness. The
access of outsiders to the employees of the port is very limited. Secured with partition windows are the premises of the Office Clerk and Bureau of Passes. At the entry points were affixed information plates for non-masked citizens on the territory of the port. A ramp-up for the disinfection of vehicles entering the port has been built and put into operation. The public access area is disinfected several times during the day. Operations and meetings of the COVID-19 Combat Headquarters at the port are conducted remotely through a visual and voice communication platform. Loading and unloading activities are carried out according to the measures prescribed by the staff, subject to strict control, after permission from the ship handling authorities. Workers are provided with the necessary personal protective equipment, no contact with crews is allowed. Burgas EAD has always been part of Burgas and the community.
