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.

That is to say, until June 15, tourists are prohibited from entering Costa Rica.

The CCSS confirms that there are 27 other health officials distributed at the land border points applying tests to the truckers, who move mainly between Central America hauling cargo, at Tablillas (Los Chiles) and Peñas Blancas (La Cruz) on the border with Nicaragua, and Paso Canoas (Corredores) and Sixaola (Talamanca) on the border with Panama.
