The following information was shared March 15 by the Quicksilver Water Shuttle team.
As many know, Quicksilver serves as a vital link between Islesboro and the mainland; passenger safety remains our number one priority.
For the time being, we will be continuing our regular service but are closely monitoring the developing COVID-19 situation.
We have consulted with health professionals and are taking serious precautions in order to guarantee that Quicksilver remains a safe way to get to and from the Island.
We are exceeding the measures recommended by the CDC by periodically disinfecting the entire boat.
We've even got some much-coveted hand sanitizer, which we are asking all passengers to use upon boarding.
Most importantly, if you feel sick, know someone who feels sick, or have been exposed to someone who has recently returned from one of the level III countries, please do not ride on Quicksilver.
Thank you for your continued patronage.
