The safety of our customers and employees is the Ferry District's top priority. We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and are taking action based on guidance from public health experts. In order to maintain a safe environment and address customer concerns, we are taking measures including:

• Enhanced cleaning protocols. We have increased the frequency of cleaning service on our ferries and in our terminals.
• Additional antibacterial products. We have increased the quantity of sanitizers available for customers and employees throughout our terminals and ferries.

New Freight Operations: freight on Fishers Island will be processed as soon as possible, but it might take to the following day before all items are availble to customers.
