Port of Coos Bay Stays Open

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Coos Bay will continue to move cargo until otherwise ordered by federal, state and local agencies, the port announced March 19.

“Currently, we are unaware of any prohibitions that have been placed on vessels coming into or out of our port. The US Coast Guard monitors each vessel that is coming into port, particularly those which have recently been to select countries.”

Meanwhile, the Charleston Marina office will be closed to public access for now. During that time, staff will work in the office to fulfill administrative duties, including payment processing. Security and maintenance will continue as well, the port said.
