Special measures announced, ports still operational

17 Mar 2020 / Costa Rica

The Costa Rican government has announced special measures to limit the spread of Covid-19. Administrators of the Ports of Costa Rica are facing up to their responsibility and are making it a priority to keep the ports fully operational.

We are working actively to prevent further spread of the coronavirus with various measures:

  • We constantly follow the advice of the Local Government, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Transportation, WHO, EU and other important entities.

  • All incoming ships must submit a Maritime Declaration of Health (MDH) before calling at port, in which the ship's master must declare whether there is any illness or suspected illness on board, together with a list of the last ten ports called at.
