Puerto Rico - Entry restrictions into Puerto Rico

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved certain requirements for passenger flights to Puerto Rico to help with the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The restrictions are effective at 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, March 24, 2020.

  • All scheduled and unscheduled commercial air carrier flights, whether foreign or domestic, will be required to land at Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) where public health officials will screen arriving passengers. This includes air carriers that operate under Part 121 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.
  • All domestic and foreign general aviation and charter flights arriving from a location outside Puerto Rico will be required to land first at SJU, Isla Grande Airport (SIG) or Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) in Aguadilla for passenger screening before continuing to their final destinations.
  • The restrictions do not apply to air cargo or maintenance flights into Puerto Rico.

In making the determination, the FAA considered the island’s vulnerability to contagious disease outbreaks, the state of emergency that Puerto Rico is under due to the virus, and the ongoing recovery from major natural disasters during the past two years. The agency determined that because of the unique circumstances involving COVID-19, granting the request is a reasonable accommodation. The action would not significantly affect the National Airspace System or obligations under international agreements or federal grant assurances.

All travelers will be notified of the self-isolation requirement through a health fact sheet.

Travelers may be required to complete a form confirming that they understand they are required to complete the self-isolation period of 14 days.

These arrangements are under constant review as the COVID-19 situation evolves, and will be revised based on updated health advice.

Arrangements for flights to Australia

From 2100 AEDST 20 March 2020, airline staff should ensure that only exempt travelers board a flight to Australia.

  • Travelers with existing domestic transfer booking or arrangements may complete their domestic transfer and commence their precautionary self-isolation period (of 14 days) at the final destination.
  • While in transit, they must remain in the airport or if they have an overnight layover, they must self-isolate in their accommodation for the duration of their transit period.

Additional messages for travelers

COVID-19 l SERBIA IMPOSES NEW CURFEW BETWEEN 5 PM - 5 AM AS NUMBER OF CASES RISE TO 171

Serbia banned playing and walking in the parks Saturday in efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus. "There are no more parks, public areas for children, for anyone," said President Aleksandar Vucic in an address to the nation where he detailed the prohibition on staying in parks and public areas intended for recreation and sports. Indoor gathering has been restricted no more than five people. Vucic said the current curfew is now replaced by a new one from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. (1600 to 0400 GMT).
"Don't make me introduce curfew 24 hours a day. Look at Italy - 793 people died in one day. Do you people understand what's going on? I'm not saying this because of politics. Please don't leave the house. If people do not stay in homes, the curfew may be as early as 1 p.m. on Monday, and maybe 24 hours after that," said Vucic. As many as 318,000 people have entered Serbia since March 5 and some knew they were infected, Vucic said. "Come for free treatment. We will cure you, but just keep in mind. If you sit in the house you cannot infect anyone, and no one can infect you," he said. Serbia confirmed the first virus-related death Friday. The number of cases in Serbia stands at 171 with 11 patients in critical condition.
The country declared a state of emergency Sunday, restricting movement for anyone older than 65 in urban areas and 70 in rural parts of the country. A night curfew was also imposed Wednesday to curb the pandemic. The virus emerged in Wuhan, China last December and has spread to at least 167 countries and territories. The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak a pandemic. The number of confirmed cases worldwide has surpassed 303,000 while the death toll nears 13,000 but more than 91,600,000 have recovered, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University in the U.S. Despite the rising number of cases, most who become infected suffer mild symptoms and recover.

JOINT STATEMENT FROM H.E. THE GOVERNOR AND THE HON. PREMIER REGARDING COVID-19

The Government remains unwavering in its commitment to protect the safety and well being
of all residents. Recognizing recent developments, the following additional and new
measures to those announced on Sunday 15th March were approved at a special meeting of
the Executive Council held today at 1pm:

1. The closure of all Anguilla’s ports - sea and air - for 14 days for all passenger movements.
This will come in to force from 11:59 pm on Friday 20th March (Anguilla time). This does
not include the movement of goods.
2. All persons arriving in Anguilla who have traveled outside of the Caribbean Region within
the last 14 days, will be quarantined for 14 days on their arrival. A judgement will be made
on arrival by health professionals if this can be self-quarantine or in a government run
health facility.
3. Schools, which are already closed this week, will remain closed until and including Friday
3rd April 2020.
4. Persons are encouraged not to congregate, this includes in church, at sports leagues,
political meetings, youth gatherings, and at any sporting activities.
5. Persons are encouraged to practice safe social distancing. The advice is to remain 3 - 6
feet apart from one another.
6. We take this opportunity to reinforce the public that hygienic measures remain our best
defense in protecting ourselves from contracting and spreading this virus. These include:
—-Ensuring that shared spaces and work surfaces are cleaned and disinfected
frequently;
—-Frequent hand washing;
—-Covering coughs and sneezes with a disposable tissue or in the crook of a flexed
elbow;
—-Avoiding contact with persons suffering from or exhibiting symptoms of acute
respiratory;
—-infections such as the flu, coughs, and colds;
—-Limiting physical contact with others, including no handshakes or physical greeting and
to avoid crowds.
7. Elder care facilities are encouraged to take measures now to protect residents. This should
include: limiting/restricting visitors, stepping up infection prevention and control through
more frequent cleaning of shared surfaces.

We appreciate that these measures will impact everyone. They have not been taken lightly.
The decision making behind them reflects the strong and clear advice of the Chief Medical
Officer and colleagues in the Ministry of Health and Social Development and the Health
Authority of Anguilla. We are acutely aware that keeping schools closed places a great deal
of pressure on families, particularly those working. We encourage you to discuss alternative
working patterns with your employers and managers, and ask that they act flexibly and with
understanding.
The Ministry of Health will continue to provide timely updates through their media partners
and their official Facebook page (Ministry of Health and Social Development) as it becomes
available.
The Ministry of Health has established a hotline for the general public seeking information on
COVID-19 and for persons who feel they have been exposed to COVID-19. The number is
1-264- 476-7627 or 476 SOAP.

Puerto Rico - updated March 25, 2020

Puerto Rico - Afternoon Update - March 25, 2020

Entry restrictions into Puerto Rico

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved certain requirements for passenger flights to Puerto Rico to help with the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The restrictions are effective at 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, March 24, 2020.

  • All scheduled and unscheduled commercial air carrier flights, whether foreign or domestic, will be required to land at Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) where public health officials will screen arriving passengers. This includes air carriers that operate under Part 121 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.
  • All domestic and foreign general aviation and charter flights arriving from a location outside Puerto Rico will be required to land first at SJU, Isla Grande Airport (SIG) or Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) in Aguadilla for passenger screening before continuing to their final destinations.
  • The restrictions do not apply to air cargo or maintenance flights into Puerto Rico.

In making the determination, the FAA considered the island’s vulnerability to contagious disease outbreaks, the state of emergency that Puerto Rico is under due to the virus, and the ongoing recovery from major natural disasters during the past two years. The agency determined that because of the unique circumstances involving COVID-19, granting the request is a reasonable accommodation. The action would not significantly affect the National Airspace System or obligations under international agreements or federal grant assurances.

US-Canada Land Border Restrictions

US-Canada Joint Initiative: Temporary Restriction of Travelers Crossing the US-Canada Land Border for Non-Essential Purposes

Release Date:  March 20, 2020

The US-Canada land border serves as an economic engine that supports over $1.7 billion (USD) dollars in daily cross-border trade. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States and Canada are temporarily restricting all non-essential travel across its borders. In each of our countries, we are encouraging people to exercise caution by avoiding unnecessary contact with others. This collaborative and reciprocal measure is an extension of that prudent approach.

“Non-essential” travel includes travel that is considered tourism or recreational in nature.

The United States and Canada recognize it is critical we preserve supply chains between both countries. These supply chains ensure that food, fuel, and life-saving medicines reach people on both sides of the border. Supply chains, including trucking, will not be impacted by this new measure. Americans and Canadians also cross the land border every day to do essential work or for other urgent or essential reasons, and that travel will not be impacted.

This decision will be implemented on March 21, 2020, at which time the US and Canada will temporarily restrict all non-essential travel across the US-Canada land border. The measure will be in place for 30 days, at which point it will be reviewed by both parties.

 

 

United States

Level 4: Do Not Travel Advisory
The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.  U.S. citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel.  Many countries are experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and implementing travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines, closing borders, and prohibiting non-citizens from entry with little advance notice. Airlines have cancelled many international flights and several cruise operators have suspended operations or cancelled trips.  If you choose to travel internationally, your travel plans may be severely disrupted, and you may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite timeframe.

What can travelers do to protect themselves and others?

CDC recommends avoiding nonessential travel. If you must travel:

  • Avoid contact with sick people.
  • Discuss international travel with your healthcare provider. Older adults and travelers with underlying health issues may be at risk for more severe disease.
  • Avoid animals (alive or dead), animal markets, and products that come from animals (such as uncooked meat).
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
     

Symptoms

Report to CDC travelers with specific symptoms:

  • Fever (person feels warm to the touch, gives a history of feeling feverish, or has an actual measured temperature of 100.4°F [38° C] or higher)
  • Persistent cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Appears obviously unwell

Report, as soon as possible before arrival, by one of the methods described in the Guidance for Air Travel Industry Reporting of Onboard Death or Illnesses to CDC.

Protecting Cabin Crew

CDC recommends the following measures for cabin crew to protect themselves, manage a sick traveler, clean contaminated areas, and take actions after a flight.

Measures

  • Practice routine handwashing.
    • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after assisting sick travelers or touching potentially contaminated body fluids or surfaces.
  • Identify sick travelers
    • Minimize contact between passengers and cabin crew and the sick person. If possible, separate the sick person from others (2 meters or 6 feet is ideal) and designate one crew member to serve the sick person.
    • Offer a facemask, if available and if the sick person can tolerate it. If a facemask is not available or cannot be tolerated, ask the sick person to cover their mouth and nose with tissues when coughing or sneezing.
  • Treat all body fluids (such as respiratory secretions, diarrhea, vomit, or blood) as if they are infectious
    • Wear disposable gloves when tending to a sick traveler or touching body fluids or potentially contaminated surfaces. Remove gloves carefully to avoid contaminating yourself, then wash hands.
    • When tending to a sick traveler from China who has fever, persistent cough, or difficulty breathing, use additional protective equipment in the Universal Precaution Kit: face mask, eye protection, and a gown to cover clothing.
    • Properly dispose of gloves and other disposable items that came in contact with the sick person or body fluids in biohazard bag or a secured plastic bag labeled as “biohazard.”
  • Clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces according to airline protocol.

Risk Assessment

This is a serious public health threat. The fact that this virus has caused severe illness and sustained person-to-person spread in China is concerning, but it’s unclear how the situation in the United States will unfold at this time.

New Visitors in Hubei

New visitors with travel history in Hubei OR with PRC passports issued in Hubei

1. From 29 January 2020, 12pm, all new visitors with recent Hubei travel history within the last 14 days, or those with PRC passports issued in Hubei, will not be allowed entry into Singapore, or transit through Singapore.

2. The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) will suspend the issuance of all forms of new visas to those with PRC passports issued in Hubei with immediate effect.

3. Previously issued short-term and multiple-visit visas, as well as visa-free transit facilities, for those with PRC passports issued in Hubei, will also be suspended with immediate effect. During this period of suspension, they will not be allowed entry into Singapore.
 

CDC Recommends

While the immediate risk of this new virus to the American public is believed to be low at this time, everyone can do their part to help us respond to this emerging public health threat:

  • For everyone: It’s currently flu and respiratory disease season and CDC recommends getting vaccinated, taking everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs, and taking flu antivirals if prescribed.
  • For healthcare professionals:
    • Be on the look-out for people with travel history to China and fever and respiratory symptoms.
    • If you are a healthcare professional caring a 2109-nCoV patient, please take care of yourself and follow recommended infection control procedures.
  • For people who may have 2019-nCoV infection: Please follow CDC guidance on how to reduce the risk of spreading your illness to others.
  • For travelers: Stay up to date with CDC’s travel health notices related to this outbreak.

CDC Response

CDC is closely monitoring this situation and is working with WHO and state and local public health partners to respond to this emerging public health threat.

Response

  • The goal of the ongoing U.S. public health response is to contain this outbreak and prevent sustained spread of 2019-nCov in this country.
  • CDC established a 2019-nCoV Incident Management Structure on January 7, 2020. On January 21, 2020, CDC activated its Emergency Response System to better provide ongoing support to the 2019-nCoV response.
  • On January 27, 2020 CDC issued updated travel guidance for China, recommending that travelers avoid all nonessential travel to all of the country (Level 3 Travel Health Notice).
  • CDC is monitoring for illness among travelers and providing educational materials for any travelers arriving in the United States from China at 20 U.S. airports with quarantine stations in the United States.
  • CDC issued an updated interim Health Alert Notice (HAN) Advisory to inform state and local health departments and health care providers about this outbreak on January 17, 2020.
  • CDC has deployed multidisciplinary teams to Washington, Illinois, California, and Arizona to assist health departments with clinical management, contact tracing, and communications.
  • CDC has developed a real time Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (rRT-PCR) test that can diagnose 2019-nCoV in respiratory and serum samples from clinical specimens. On January 24, 2020, CDC publicly posted the assay protocol for this test. Currently, testing for this virus must take place at CDC, but in the coming days and weeks, CDC will share these tests with domestic and international partners through the agency’s International Reagent Resourceexternal icon.
  • CDC uploaded the entire genome of the virus from the first and second reported cases in the United States to GenBank.
  • CDC also is growing the virus in cell culture, which is necessary for further studies, including for additional genetic characterization.
