Health Alert; U.S. Embassy Managua, Nicaragua (May 14, 2020)

Additional suspensions, closures, or other restrictions on movement could occur with no advance warning, warns the US Embassy in Managua

As of May 14, the Government of Nicaragua has reported 25 cases of COVID-19, including cases transmitted through community spread. Independent health monitors report the actual number of cases is likely much higher.

Independent reporting also suggests the spread of COVID may be impacting the ability of the medical system in areas outside of Managua to effectively respond.

While the Nicaraguan government has not officially announced border restrictions, the land borders with Costa Rica and Honduras are closed. All commercial air service between Nicaragua and the United States remains suspended until at least early June.
