Two Royal Caribbean crew members from the cruise ship Liberty of the Seas have tested positive for COVID-19. This was confirmed by Rodger Rees executive director at Port of Galveston, who said the port authorities were notified that two Liberty of the Seas crew members were screened and tested positive for COVID-19.

One crew member who exhibited coronavirus symptoms disembarked the ship and was sent to hospital in Galveston, and the other crew member who showed no visible symptoms remains in quarantine aboard the ship.

The ship authorities have also placed some crew on Deck 2 under observation saying that these crew members were in close contact with the two crew members who tested positive for the virus. “For now everything is calm onboard with no new positive cases for coronavirus.  We get twice a day our temperature test.” One crew member says

All the crew are in isolation in separate guest staterooms and the food is delivered to the cabins. The crew must remain in their cabins and follow strict protocols established by the health authorities. Only crew that are assigned to work can leave their cabins.
