Port of Poulsbo staff self-quarantine after coming into contact with COVID-19

The Port of Poulsbo offices closed Tuesday after two employees were reported to have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Those two employees are currently self-quarantining and the port offices are currently being professionally disinfected.

“During this time, we ask for your patience and understanding,” a statement from the port reads. “We are working with a limited staff and have put guidelines in place to protect the public, our boaters and our employees from spreading this deadly virus.”

Once the port offices open again for employees, the port will still be closed off to the public. If you need to speak with staff, please call the port offices at 360-779-9905. Additionally, the restroom and laundry buildings are closed to the public. The only individuals who are allowed in the building are the liveaboard licensees, staff and any licensee who needs to use the restroom while checking on their vessel.

The fuel dock is available on a very limited basis and by appointment only. Email PoulsboHarbormaster@portofpoulsbo.com to make arrangements for a fuel fill-up between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. – seven days a week. This time window could change based on staffing levels.

The port is also discouraging the use of the transient docks during the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order given by Governor Jay Inslee. The port will not be taking any reservations until after April 30 and the port’s Multipurpose Room is not available until after April 30. Cash will not be accepted during this time due to sanitary reasons.

“Our staff has worked extra hard at keeping the restroom building clean and wiping down surfaces many times throughout the day,” the statement from the port reads. “The measures that have been taken, have been put in place to protect you and our staff.”
