The Government continues to work closely with devolved administrations to implement border measures and has discussed the seamen, masters, inspectors and surveyors of ships exemption. We have introduced an exemption from managed quarantine for seamen, masters, inspectors and surveyors of ships to ensure that vital services through freight routes and supply chains can continue, as well as providing for crew welfare.
