Thus, the Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR), in Liberia, Guanacaste, will not receive such flights of Costa Ricans and legal residents, the only that are permitted entry.

To date, a total of 652 people have been repatriated, of those 15 have tested positive for the covid-19.

The objective that the passengers arriving stay isolated for a period of 15 days, with the aim of mitigating any risk of contagion of the viral respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus.

During the development of the pandemic, the Government promoted a reform of the legislation to toughen fines and penalties for those who violate sanitary orders. The monetary sanctions for violating a Health order range from ¢450,000 to ¢2.2 million colones and possible criminal charges, depending on the case.
