Police issue statement on Ruby Princess berthing

The Ruby Princess will be berthing at the port of Port Kembla from today (Monday 6 April 2020) to allow for safer access for medical assessments, treatment, or emergency extractions of her crew.

It is believed the vessel may remain in place for up to 10 days, but the crew will not disembark unless in an emergency and approved by the NSW Police Commissioner.

She will also be refuelling and restocking provisions, as required for her home journey.

The berthing will be conducted under strict health and biosecurity guidelines and will not pose a risk to employees at the port or the broader community.

While no further information is available at this time, if and when it does, it will be issued either as a media release or official statement.
