The dock workers infected by coronavirus at Port Everglades might have come into contact with more than 50,000 Princess Cruises travelers over three weeks.

Three of the first four people to test positive for the virus in Broward County work for Metro Cruise Services, which provides guest services for arriving and departing cruise passengers.

And chances are good that passengers of five Princess Cruises ships encountered at least one of Metro Cruise Services’ 150 local employees before or after any of 11 voyages that departed the port’s Terminals 2, 4 or 19 over 24 days beginning Feb. 12.

In a statement released Tuesday evening, Metro Cruise Services president Anthony Newman said the infected employees were all part-time workers who provided services to cruise travelers through the boarding process. The company frequently hires retirees in those roles.
