Under several of the non-mutual insurances, including the Charterers' Terms and Conditions, there are provisions that in the event that the World Health Organisation (WHO) has determined an outbreak of a Communicable Disease to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (a 'Declared Communicable Disease'), no coverage will be provided under this insurance for any loss, damage, liability, cost or expense directly arising from any transmission or alleged transmission of the Declared Communicable Disease. The exclusions do not apply to infections prior to 23rd July. 

The Club will continue to provide crew health information to Members, and to closely monitor developments.
