Statement: Rio de la Plata
9 August 2021
As part of our normal border checks for all vessels coming into Napier, we became aware that the Rio de la Plata had been boarded two weeks ago by an Australian port worker who later tested positive for COVID-19.
We implemented our border protocol, which is that any vessel, seafarers or people that are close contacts of a confirmed case of COVID-19 are required to self-isolate onboard the vessel, at anchor, and test negative for COVID-19 before we will approve it to berth.
Our priority is to keep everyone at the port and in the community safe and obviously we’re also concerned for the wellbeing of the crew on the ship anchored off Tauranga.
We’ll keep working closely with government agencies as to any next steps.

Sustainability aligned with global goals:
At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
