WILLEMSTAD – The government on Curacao has decided to close the border between the island and Aruba. The reason is an increase in the number of infections in Aruba. A negative travel advice was already issued in Curaçao on Tuesday.
Due to the increase in the number of infections, Aruba has tightened up the corona measures. Since this week, there has been a ban on gathering and no more than four people may be together in public areas. In addition, stricter rules apply to visiting restaurants and bars and the practice of sports. Inside shops, supermarkets, and other places where there is customer contact, people are obliged to wear face masks. These are also mandatory in public transport and taxis.
Bonaire keeps the border with Aruba open. Bonaire has introduced a quarantine obligation of fourteen days. The travel advice from the Netherlands is yellow.
