Pandemic Information & Resources for the Towing Industry

AWO is committed to providing resources for you as your companies, our industry and our country navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. This means ensuring you have access to critical health and safety information and official government and public health guidance to enable informed decision making as the COVID-19 challenge progresses and evolves. The resources linked on this website can help you take steps to protect vessel crewmembers and other employees from COVID-19 and respond to suspected cases of COVID-19 as you work to move maritime commerce safely and steadily in support of our national economy.
AWO hosts a member forum on the third Thursday of every month at 2 p.m. ET to provide members an opportunity to speak with fellow AWO members about COVID-19 prevention and response strategies. Regular reminder emails will be sent with the connection information. If you’ve missed those reminders, please email for the meeting information.
