COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has spread rapidly throughout the world, a consequence of the millions of movements that take place daily on the planet. Because all the countries that make up the Central American Integration System (SICA) region have registered positive cases of the disease, the corresponding national authorities have taken a series of measures to counter the spread of the virus and the economic impact in each one of the countries.

In summary, the main provisions are:

  • Monitoring and applying of the health protocols recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • Closure of air, land, and sea borders in the eight countries of the region. The only exceptions are to guarantee the flow of goods and humanitarian flights.
  • Establishment of quarantines and mobility restrictions within each of the territories.
  • Financial measures to ease tax burdens, bank, mortgage, and service payments, as well as the provision of financial aid to the informal sector directly affected by restrictive mobility measures.
  • Measures to lessen the impact on the dynamic sectors of the economies.
