There are no cases of COVID-19 on Bonaire to date.

In a press conference on Friday, March 13th, 2020, Bonaire’s Lt. Governor Edison Rijna advised that to date, there are no confirmed or suspected cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Bonaire.  Due to the increasing number of cases in Europe, with which Bonaire has close ties, it is necessary to take precautionary measures to avoid the spread of the virus to Bonaire.

Flights from Europe are suspended through March 31, 2020.

Accordingly, effective March 14, 2020 and through March 31, 2020, no flights originating in The European Netherlands will be allowed to land in Bonaire.

Cruise ship arrivals are suspended for 30 days.

Additionally, effective today, March 14, 2020 and for a period of 30 days, no cruise ships will be allowed in port.

Freight and cargo will continue as usual.  The situation is, of course, fluid, and the Lt. Governor together with the Island Council will continue to closely monitor the situation in the region and will report as there are new developments.
