HOUSTON, TX – Port Houston’s Barbours Cut and Bayport Container terminals reopened last night (March 19), less than 24 hours after they were closed, the port confirms.

The closure was announced after a Port Houston employee tested positive for COVID-19, according to Port of Houston Authority Chairman Ric Campo.

“He worked at Barbours Cut over the weekend and nine days ago at Bayport,” Campo said. “The good news is we think he had limited contact. He wasn’t a full-time port employee so we had short periods of time that he was at those two facilities.“

Port Houston says the worker is in good condition at the hospital. An investigation is underway to determine if anyone else was exposed.

Port Houston says the supply chain has not been affected by this closure.
