Latest Updates

April 25, 2020 – Status quo maintained – positive 100, active 29.  The number of COVID-19 coronavirus cases in Aruba remains at 100 of which 29 are active positive cases, total recovered remains at 69. There have been 2 deaths confirmed to date. An additional 31 persons have been tested since yesterday bringing the total to 1608 persons tested so far. Persons who are in quarantine remains at 58. There are no inconclusive test results at this time.

On April 28th, the Aruba Government is expected to inform the general public if the current restrictions in effect (shelter in place measure, daily curfew and limitation on gatherings of more than 3 persons) will be modified in any way.

Also recently an article was published by the Aruba Airport Authority (AAA) where they stated that they are preparing to be able to receive passengers as of June 1st. While these preparations may indeed be taking place, this does not mean that the restriction on incoming passengers will be lifted on that date – that is a decision that will be taken by the Aruba Government, and to date there has been no indication of any specific dates when that could happen. When questioned about this during a press conference, Aruba’s Prime Minister’s reaction indicated that she was surprised by the AAA announcement and also said that it seemed unlikely that anything would happen by June 1st. Ultimately it is the Aruba government’s decision to take and none has been taken yet.

Transit passengers shall go through the same screening process as the passengers with Aruba as their final destination. Screening protocols will not be waived under any circumstances, even for passengers who may have been screened at destinations prior to arriving in Aruba. A medical letter will not be accepted as an exemption for screening.

Upon arrival, identified visitors will complete a traveler health questionnaire. Any potential cases will be subject to immediate screening by the Department of Public Health for symptoms (fever, coughing, and shortness of breath). The Department of Public Health will decide if these passengers or crew member(s) will be quarantined or isolated.

Passengers displaying symptoms will be isolated and receive clinical treatment as per W.H.O. guidelines for COVID-19. In case passengers were in contact with a recent confirmed case, these will be quarantined for an amount of 14 days after the last contact.

In reference to the cruise industry, the current International Health Regulation will continue to be applied. Each cruise ship is required to submit the maritime health declaration to the Department of Public Health in a timely manner. The Department of Public Health can make use of its authority to inspect the cruise ship whenever deemed necessary. As per regulation, cases of isolation will not be allowed to disembark from the cruise ship.

A local awareness campaign is currently underway to educate and inform the public about the importance of basic hygiene practices, such as proper hand washing, use of hand sanitizers, frequent disinfection of surfaces, cough and sneeze protocol. Avoid going to public places at all times when having respiratory illnesses.

All other protocols defined by the World Health Organization are also in place and shall continue to be activated accordingly.”
