Shipping companies in and near New York are taking a varied approach to returning to office work as the Covid-19 pandemic eases, with one back since May 2020 and others not returning until this coming September.

Charles R Weber tanker brokerage, Greenwich, Connecticut: Workers have been back to the office since May 2020 under protocols that have resulted in no cases in the office, co-managing directors Christos Alexandrou and Christos Papanicolaou said.

Weber appointed a Covid “marshal” to oversee safety practices, which included the distancing of desks and quarantine for any employee who tested positive outside of work.
