WSF advises riders limit usage to ‘essential purposes’

Washington State Ferries recently advised all riders to limit travel on ferries to essential purposes only, and to observe physical distancing by remaining in their vehicles whenever possible.

The announcement was made June 16 and was directed at riders on all routes.

“Customers who must travel on ferries are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings to help promote the health and safety of themselves and our frontline employees,” officials said.

“On some sailings, the number of walk-on passengers may be restricted so that riders can maintain physical distance.”

WSF is holding a virtual community meeting to address issues arising from the ongoing health crisis at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 30.
