In an effort to help the maritime industry prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Future Care is extending the services offered through its Medical Clearance and First Response Programs to include COVID-19 screening for both crewmembers and non-crewmembers prior to boarding. Pre-board screening is essential in keeping COVID-19 off the ships and to prevent the spread of the virus to the crew already onboard. Through our review of pre-board screening questionnaires by trained medical professionals, we can offer recommendations on whether an individual or crewmember is safe to board the ship. We are also prepared to investigate any areas of concern on the pre-boarding questionnaires before an individual or crewmember is cleared to board the vessel and will offer medical advice on next steps regarding treatment and testing if an individual has any COVID-19 symptoms or risk factors. COVID-19 screen is offered as part of Future Care’s Medical Clearance Program which also includes review of pre-boarding crew medical documents and coordination of physicals and vaccines as needed. For those not enrolled in our Medical Clearance program, we are also offering COVID-19 screening as a stand-alone service through our First Response Program.
