Cuba reduces arrivals of travelers due to increase in Covid-19 cases
Havana, Dec 28 (Prensa Latina) Due to the increase in imported Covid-19 cases involving Cuban citizens arriving from the United States, Mexico and Panama, health and airport authorities informed on Monday about a reduction in arrivals from those destinations.
The measure aims to reduce the number of travelers, also from Haiti, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas, National Epidemiology Director Francisco Duran said at a press conference.
This way, Cuban Civil Aeronautics authorities are readjusting the necessary details with foreign airlines to make the new measure effective on January 1, 2021.
Dr. Duran pointed out that as soon as the epidemiological situation allows so, the frequency of flights from those countries will be reestablished gradually.
This new measure will be complemented by the mandatory requirement that all international travelers will have to produce a negative PCR test made 72 hours before the flight by a certified laboratory in their country of origin, starting on January 10, 2021.
Parallel to those measures, Cuba will guarantee accommodation to Cuban travelers who reside in the country and do not have the appropriate conditions at home to comply with isolation.
Likewise, hotel rooms will be available to Cuban travelers who reside abroad or any other persons who decide to stay in isolation in those establishments and pay for that service.
