The Port of Newport is experiencing some difficulty in staffing shifts as a result of the increase of COVID cases in Lincoln County. We anticipate this difficulty to be temporary. Through the pandemic we have been able to maintain operations as normal, but we have not escaped the impacts of work absences during this most recent surge.
To reduce your chances of experiencing an unexpected delay, please notify the service location where you need assistance as early in advance as possible so that we can staff appropriately and manage expectations of Port users. Delays may still occur, but we will continue to do our best to prevent those impacts as we respond to the latest challenge posed by COVID. We are very optimistic that in a couple short weeks COVID will have peaked and we will be operating at full strength again. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
For more information, please contact Aaron Bretz, Director of Operations, at 541.265.7758.
