Tanjung Bakau Port head in Pasangkayu, Agung, said the quarantine procedure commenced on Tuesday.

The vessel had since been ordered to maintain its position at least 1 kilometer from the port as it awaited the arrival of a medical team that would examine its crew members for any symptoms of Wuhan coronavirus, he said.

The foreign vessel is not allowed to moor at Tanjung Bakau Port until after the quarantine has ended and once the crew members are declared free of the deadly virus.

“All foreign vessels are not allowed to immediately moor at the port until after they’ve been declared free of the coronavirus. Even if a ship is indeed considered free of the virus, none of its crew members are allowed to disembark,” Agung said on yesterday as quoted by kompas.com.
