Holland America Line statement
The Cambodian Ministry of Health has issued a press release confirming that 781 Westerdam guests have tested negative for COVID-19. This completes the guests’ testing.
These results provide the required clearance for remaining guests in Cambodia to begin their onward journey home. The company is working to finalize arrangements for everyone. Those who travelled home previously will be contacted by their local health department and provided further information.
Westerdam will remain alongside in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, for at least a few more days until testing is complete on the 747 crewmembers on board.
All tests are being processed at the Institut Pasteur in Phnom Penh.
A full team is on the ground in both Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh, including Holland America Line’s President Orlando Ashford.
Holland America Line sincerely thanks Cambodia’s Honorable Prime Minister Hun, the Cambodian Ministry of Health and all those in Cambodia who have worked so hard to assist our guests in getting home.
Our sincere gratitude also goes to the U.S. Embassy in Cambodia for all of its hard work and support. We also appreciate the several other embassies from other nations that provided their vital assistance and our flag state of the Netherlands for its many efforts.
We would also like to thank the regional authorities from the World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for their guidance.
