1086 - 03/16 – Zika Virus – Update - Worldwide
Further to Bulletin 1080, the Association has produced a dedicated resource page, providing the latest information and guidance for shipowners and crew travelling to and from areas with known outbreak.
Although the World Health Organisation is not currently recommending any travel or trade restrictions related to Zika virus some port authorities are requiring additional information for vessels and crew arriving from locations where a known outbreak of Zika is occurring. The Club will continue to monitor the situation and collate all the latest information on the topic and any implications this may have for shipowners on the resource page, which can be found here.
