Metro Cruise Services has been notified by public health authorities that three of its part-time employees have tested positive for COVID-19. These employees worked at various cruise terminals in Port Everglades, providing embarkation services.
“We were unaware that any of our part-time employees were sick until we were notified by the authorities,” said Metro Cruise Services President Anthony Newman. “We then immediately notified all of our Port Everglades employees that one of their associates had tested positive and advised them that, if they have any symptoms, they should seek medical assistance and not report to work. We are assisting all relevant governmental agencies with their inquiries and instructions. The health and safety of our workforce and those they encounter remain our top priority. We will be making no further statements at this time.”
