By order of the New Babbage Volunteer Militia,
Wiggy Undertone, Captain:
Due to the discovery of a highly infectious contagion currently affecting New Babbage, a cessation of all shipping, both inbound and outbound, is hereby ordered. This step must be taken to ensure the contagion does not spread outside the city. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, and will inform you of the resumption of such commerce as soon as possible.
(This message is posted at all air-towers and throughout the port areas.)
