Marine terminals at the Port of Los Angeles will continue to be open for business amid COVID-19 while exercising precautionary measures to minimize risk exposure to workers.
“Our highest priority is maintaining a safe and healthy working environment throughout the Port complex while continuing our role of keeping consumer goods and critical supplies flowing into all of the nation’s 435 congressional districts served by the port,” said port Executive Director Gene Seroka.
As the nation’s busiest seaport, the Port of Los Angeles is an essential entity that is exempt from the recent “Stay at Home’ order issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom. Currently, cargo volumes are at 85 percent of normal traffic, according to the port.
Meanwhile, cruise lines that operate out of the port have been suspended for now.
