Haiti - NOTICE : Measures against Ebola still in force
In a note, the Ministry of Public Health and Population, reiterates the absolute necessity to protect Haiti from the introduction of Ebola disease in its territory. After receiving international guidelines both from the WHO IOPS that the US Disease Prevention Control Centers of America, declaring Mali free of Ebola, Haiti has decided to exclude these destinations from the list of countries at risk.

However, given the particular vulnerability of Haiti, the previous recommendations http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-12777-haiti-health-new-measures-to-prevent-the-introduction-of-ebola-in-haiti.html are maintained despite the considerable progress made to contain the disease in the remaining affected countries such as: Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea-Conakry, except in cases of absolute necessity.

All persons who have traveled to these countries can not and should not try to get in Haiti before a minimum period of 21 days after the departure of or of affected country (ies). The Ministry of Interior will ensure that the 21-day incubation period is scrupulously respected. The authorities present at ports of entry must ensure that the instructions regarding screening of passengers are recalled to the relevant services.
