Good Afternoon,

This MSIB provides guidance concerning mariner credentials and medical certificates and the action being taken by the Coast Guard due to the novel coronavirus and the disease it causes (COVID-19). We are doing this in keeping with national guidance to meet the challenge of this disease and in response to a number of questions and concerns raised by the maritime industry and mariners.

Separately, we have been experiencing some technical issues due to the increased demand on the network in recent events. If you think you may have not received all the MSIB updates via email, please continue to monitor our Homeport page at the link below. All updates will be posted on this page in the Safety Notifications > MSIB section.

Very Respectfully,
Waterways Management
Coast Guard Sector Southeastern New England
20 Risho Avenue, Suite D
East Providence, RI 02914
