A worker on board the Taqa Tern Alpha platform has been quarantined after displaying “minor symptoms”, since returning from a recent holiday in Thailand. A crew change was due yesterday but we believe it was diverted by the helicopter company until the full situation is known.
Taqa said: “A member of crew on board our Tern Alpha platform has presented with minor symptoms after returning recently from holiday in Thailand. The individual is being attended to by the medic on board the platform and as a precaution he is remaining separated from the rest of the crew until the results of tests are known. Both the individual and Taqa continue to take the appropriate actions and precautions in line with the UK government guidelines.”
