(Coronavirus) On December 18, 2020, the Stena cruiseferry Edda remained overnight in Birkenhead (a town in Wirral Borough, Merseyside England) after 6 crew tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19). The ship was carrying a total of 322 passengers and 53 crew-staff.
The Belfast-bound ship docked at Stena Line Liverpool Terminal (on Mersey River) after being advised by port health authorities not to allow passenger debarkation or leave Port Birkenhead after the crew were found to have Coronavirus. To all the stranded passengers, Stena Line arranged alternative travel. The 6 infected crew were suffering "only mild symptoms" and quarantined onboard. Stena also confirmed that "none (of them) were in passenger-facing or onboard services roles".
Stena Edda completed the passenger debarkation at 11:45 am. The positive crew were transferred to the fleetmate Stena Mersey, which departed for Belfast in the afternoon.
