Yesterday the Ministry of Transportation and Communications put out the following press release:
A welcome piece of news. The Peruvian government published last June 24 Ministerial Resolution N° 780-2021-MINSA, which approves the “Technical Guide for the prevention and control of COVID-19 in travelers entering and leaving the country during the health emergency.”
The aforementioned guide establishes that, in the case of passengers entering and leaving the country by air, the use of double masks will be necessary, in addition to hand hygiene, as well as respecting the physical distance. Thus, the use of face shields is not required.
Similarly, for domestic flights, the aforementioned technical guide indicates the use of double masks, hand hygiene, as well as respecting the physical distance. In this case, the use of the face shield will not be necessary either.
It is important to mention that this measure will mainly facilitate the arrival of foreign visitors. As it is known, many countries have been positively implementing their vaccination processes against COVID-19. This will soon allow the recovery of tourism activity in Peru.
The “Technical Guide for the prevention and control of COVID-19 in travelers entering and leaving the country during the sanitary emergency” also provides detailed information on the procedure for entry by air, the procedure for the departure of travelers by air, care of suspected or confirmed cases, actions to be implemented upon identification of a suspected or confirmed case, among others.
