COVID-19 protocols will be in place as the crew of a Japanese cargo ship anchored off the Eyre Peninsula coast come to Port Lincoln for shore leave this weekend.

Crew members from the Japanese registered vessel Kenta Maru will be taking shore leave in line with COVID-19 management protocols with the knowledge of federal, state and local authorities.

All crew members have been tested for COVID-19 and all returned negative results.

The cargo ship has been anchored outside Boston Bay for the past 60 days, with crew members last coming ashore in Port Lincoln on July 10.
