Cuba: Hemingway Marina reopened for foreign boats

Havana, Nov 23 (Prensa Latina) The Hemingway Marina on Monday announced its reopening for foreign recreational boats and the implementation of strict health measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

According to the protocol, after the arrival of a boat, coming from another country, to a Cuban international marina, the Dock Master will ask the captain about the health of the crew, all of whom will have their temperatures taken and will be tested for Covid-19 (PCR).

If any crew member has respiratory or subjective symptoms of Covid-19, he will be hospitalized, and the boat and the rest of the crew will be in quarantine until the results of the test are available, the Hemingway International Yacht Club of Cuba explained on its Facebook profile.

It added that the healthy crew members, who were admitted to the marina, have to remain on board the vessel until the results of the Covid-19 test are available. In addition, each one has to inform where they will stay, for epidemiological surveillance, in the next 10 days.

With the implementation of those new measures, the Hemingway Marina, which is 18 kilometers from Havana’s downtown, will join other nautical facilities in Cuba that will receive recreational boats, including the Gaviota Varadero Marina.
