The manager of Coal Harbour Marina said the facility has reviewed its potential for coronavirus exposure after a tenant tested positive for coronavirus.

On Tuesday, the marina’s manager Steven Varley told Daily Hive “one residential tenant advised of a positive test on July 29th and is now isolating for 14 days on the vessel.”

The tenant, he added “has been forthright and cooperative,” and there have been no additional cases reported.

“As is now usual, we continue to develop our response to COVID-19 with the marina remaining operational including social distancing, regular hand-washing, enhances cleaning and other hygiene protocols in effect,” said Varley.

Varley said that while not related to the case, the marina has amended its guest moorage procedure to restrict single overnight reservations and or short stay visits.

This, he said “is to ward off ‘party vessels’ wanting to berth in the marina.”
