Checks and controls have been introduced at ports and the airport in Uruguay to check arriving passengers and crew, particularly those arriving from the countries most affected by COVID-19. Any travellers suspected to have the virus will proceed with quarantine. For cases on board vessels, they may not disembark at port, or enter to port to operate.

From Friday (20 March), flights from Europe will not be allowed to land in Uruguay.

The Government has closed schools and universities, and prohibited all public events for 2 weeks. The public is urged not to attend meetings, and private companies were asked to request their employees to work from home.
