Under UK and International Health Regulations, ships entering port are normally required to submit a Maritime Declaration of Health (MDH) only when there has been an occurrence onboard that may affect public health.

The PLA [Port of London Authority] has been advised by the London Port Health Authority that due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus), additional requirements to submit a Maritime Declaration of Health will now apply, and therefore issue the following message on behalf of London Port Health Authority:

Please ensure that a Maritime Declaration of Health is completed and conveyed to the London Port Health Authority via porthealth@cityoflondon.gov.uk and porthealth.denton@cityoflondon.gov.uk for ALL vessels arriving into the Port of London district until further notice…
