COVID-19 Best Practices for the Houston Ship Channel Area

March 17, 2020

The Lone Star Harbor Safety Committee and the Greater Houston Port Bureau have collaborated on a best practices guideline for addressing COVID-19 in the Houston Ship Channel area. This document was developed based on multiple industry and government resources. The goal is to establish a baseline for our many industry partners working together to continue maritime commerce. This document does not and cannot address every situation, and many industry partners may choose to go above and beyond these best practices.

This is a living document and will be updated as the situation changes. Please direct any change requests to The current version can be found on the Lone Star Harbor Safety Committee website:

Thank you for continuing to work together for safe and efficient maritime commerce.
