Health Protection Agency (HPA) has released a newly updated guideline to be followed when traveling between islands to provide essential services and for project works. The purpose of the guideline is to set out preventive measures to control the spread of COVID-19 in the islands.

The guideline further provides the scope of services covered under the guideline, travel application procedure and the responsibilities of organizations in sending their staff to islands for work related purposes.

This guideline applies only to islands with the exclusion of resorts. Resorts should follow the guideline on ‘Public Health Interventions to Prevent COVID-19 Transmission in the Tourism Sector’ for traveling related to essential services.
