Darwin port workers fear the lack of a cohesive and nationally-consistent policy on addressing COVID risks involving international shipping poses a significant threat of a community outbreak of the deadly virus in the Northern Territory.

The Maritime Union of Australia said the concerns of waterfront workers had been heightened after a 25-year-old seafarer from the Diamantina livestock carrier, which arrived from Indonesia on Sunday night, tested positive for the virus.

MUA Press Release 
 
The National Cabinet must use today’s meeting to establish “green lanes” to allow interstate travel by maritime workers, with hundreds currently unable to travel to work or get home after being at sea. 
 
The Maritime Union of Australia said travel restrictions and border closures between Australian states and territories had led to a situation where many Australian seafarers were isolated at sea, unable to get home to their families, with replacement crew members also unable to join the vessels.
