Special Containment Procedures: Naval Task Force Stheno-9 ("Carta Marina") has been assigned to monitor SCP-4931's movements at all times. Three long-range tracking devices have been embedded in the object's hull, and an additional two secured inside the object for redundancy. Should it approach a major exclusion area,1 a Foundation vessel will be dispatched to escort it to a pre-approved alternative destination.

Under the 'Shore Leave' protocol, SCP-4931-1 is allowed to have limited contact with the civilian population, provided that at least two plainclothes agents are present to monitor its actions and initiate on-location lockdown procedures as necessary.
