These are Costa Ricans who for various reasons were abroad and decided to return to Costa Rica during the current emergency, according to Román Macaya, executive president of the Costa Rican Social Security Fund.

A total of 652 people traveled on these 13 flights, of which – to date – 15 have been positive to the COVID-19 test.

Macaya explained that in accordance with Health protocols, not only the 15 infected people but all 652 people received a quarantine order, to stay at home for 15 days after their arrival.

According to the president of the CCSS, there is a permanent medical team at the Juan Santamaria International airport (SJO) to attend to all people arriving from abroad.

Until June 15 (extended from May 15), only Costa Ricans and legal residents are permitted entry into the country by land, sea air. There are some exemptions, ie diplomats, airline crews and by special permit.
