No travel ban, but checks in place
Barbados has not banned travel to or from West Africa but the Ministry of Health has recommended that residents defer travel to the region unless absolutely essential until the current Ebola outbreak is brought under control.
In a release from the Government Information Service yesterday, it was noted that surveillance measures were in place at the airport and the seaport.
According to the ministry, all passports were being reviewed to determine the passengers’ travel history within the six weeks prior to travelling to Barbados.
In times of high alert, Barbados has established procedures for determining illnesses on board air and sea vessels in advance of arrival. (JS/BGIS)
