Northlink Ferries has confirmed it will continue to offer reduced services to the islands from Aberdeen.
The boat operator has introduced restrictions on its crossings to allow only necessary travel between the mainland and the Northern Isles.
It has also made a significant number of changes to its onboard offering, including suspension of the cinema and car valet and the closure of onboard shops and the bar area.
The MV Hamnavoe bed and breakfast has also been suspended.
Stuart Garrett, Serco’s managing director of NorthLink Ferries, said: “The wellbeing of our passengers and staff is always our top priority and since the outset of Covid-19 we have taken all the necessary precautions to ensure their health and safety.
“We have followed relevant guidelines and advice from the government and health officials and continue to do so.
“It is for this reason that restrictions have been implemented to allow only necessary travel between the Scottish mainland and Northern Isles and a reduced on board offering.
“While we do continue to provide a lifeline service, we would like to remind all passengers to adhere to government guidelines when travelling with us for the safety of themselves, their families and our staff.”
Food and drink will be available on board crossings between Aberdeen, Kirkwall and Lerwick due to the lengthy duration of those routes, although with an amended menu.
