A crew member with flu-like symptoms arriving in Perth on a bulk carrier currently at the Kwinana Bulk Terminal tested negative for COVID-19.
The crew will be assessed and re-boarded, and BW Matsuyama from Singapore will depart on Wednesday.
The ship has a crew of 19 people. All crew members joined the ship in Manila on August 20th. Their last port was Singapore on November 25th.
In October, Western Australia’s Health Minister Roger Cook said the Australian mining company had agreed not to use Manila-based sailors.
