JAXPORT continues to work closely with our federal, state, and local partners to monitor the coronavirus and take appropriate action to limit any potential impact on our port community.

To maintain the health and safety of JAXPORT’s operations, we have implemented a number of best practices designed to prevent the spread of illnesses, including coronavirus.

Please take a moment to review these actions, developed in accordance with guidelines issued by health agencies and the City of Jacksonville, and consider implementing them, as appropriate, for your business.

JAXPORT has:

  • Performed no-touch temperature scans on all JAXPORT employees, contractors and visitors at all primary facilities and office buildings to screen for a fever higher than 100.4 degrees (in accordance with CDC guidelines). Anyone with an elevated temperature requires a doctor’s note to return to work.
  • Segregated interactions between day and night shifts for terminal employees.
  • Implemented social distancing on the terminal (a minimum of six feet of distance between employees).
  • Conducted daily disinfection of shared equipment and vehicles at the beginning and end of each shift.
  • All administrative employees whose job functions can be performed remotely have been asked to telework.
  • Closed the Administrative office to all visitors (with exception of package pick-ups and drop-offs).
  • Advised our contracted security guards to perform no-touch ID and TWIC checks at all facilities.
  • Restricted travel.

If you have best practices that you have implemented already and would like to share them with us, or if we can be of any assistance to you during this time, please don’t hesitate to contact JAXPORT Director of Public Safety Ron Lendvay (Ronald.Lendvay@jaxport.com or (904) 524-1806) or Assistant Director of Terminal Operations Dan Deptula (Daniel.Deptula@jaxport.com or (904) 477-6706).

Thank you for your partnership as we work together to protect our maritime community and keep cargo moving safely through Jacksonville.
