The Port of Los Angeles continues to move cargo at all of its terminals and help protect the Port workforce amid the COVID-19 public health crisis. Meanwhile, Port officials are working with the U.S. Navy to prepare for the arrival of the USNS MERCY.
“I want to thank Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and California Governor Gavin Newsom for their leadership and decisive action last week to enact statewide stay-at-home measures to help control the pandemic outbreak,” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka. “Working together and with our partners in the private sector, we can fully leverage the strength of the Port during this crisis.”
