Crew members on Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth ship test positive for COVID

Cunard Line’s Queen Elizabeth has crew members on board who have tested positive for the coronavirus, the cruise line confirmed Wednesday. The cruise line did not say how many crew members tested positive.

“We have detected a small number of Covid-19 cases amongst crew members joining Queen Elizabeth,” Cunard president Simon Palethorpe told USA TODAY in a statement.

No passengers are on board, and the ship is not due to sail with passengers until July 19.

The Carnival Corp. subsidiary is working with Southampton Port Health and has taken steps to “successfully contain the situation,” including limiting the number of additional crew members coming aboard, putting in place approved isolation measures and contact tracing.

“We have comprehensive health and wellbeing procedures in place to protect all on board, which have been developed with guidance from our global medical, public health and industry experts and in close coordination with Government departments,” Palethorpe said.
