Ponta Delgada ,  March 14, 2020

All passengers landing in the Azores subject to mandatory quarantine

All passengers landing in the Region are, as of the beginning of today's afternoon, required to comply with a mandatory quarantine period of 14 days, as determined by the Regional Health Authority. 

They are also required to sign a consent form acknowledging that the failure comply with this mandatory quarantine period constitutes a crime of disobedience and, as such, a complaint will be lodged with the judicial authorities. 

Besides this measure, all passengers must fill in a questionnaire for the early detection of suspected cases of infection with the novel coronavirus COVID-19, a preventive measure that is being coordinated in each regional airport by the health delegates of the respective islands. 

These questionnaires make it possible to determinate the existence of epidemiological and clinical criteria associated with COVID-19 in each of the passengers arriving in the Region.

Following the information provided in the questionnaires, completed before disembarkation, and whenever there is a validation of a suspected case, the passenger in question is immediately isolated for screening, through laboratory testing. 

In case of refusal to fill in the questionnaire, the passenger is automatically prevented from disembarking by the health delegate.
The compliance with all these measures is also applicable to the disembarkation of the crew members from these flights.


Official government press-releases presented in all foreign languages interfaces of the Azorean Government Portal (Portal do Governo dos Açores) are a sub-set of the government's official press-releases daily output and are chosen for translation and publication on the foreign language interfaces based on audience segmentation criteria. The entire collection of the Azorean government press-releases is available in portuguese, here, from the GACS Press Office site.
