HCMC – The HCMC Department of Health has asked the Maritime Administration of HCMC to continue coordinating with the Center for International Health Quarantine and relevant agencies to tighten Covid-19 infection prevention and control at the city’s seaports.

The captains of all vessels have been told to commit to complying with regulations on Covid-19 infection prevention and control.

The relevant agencies must ensure that the captains and sailors of foreign ships are fully informed about Vietnam’s regulations on Covid-19 infection prevention and control and the related guidance of the Ministry of Health.

They must ensure the crew’s compliance with regulations and the captains must take responsibility if their sailors violate the rules.

The HCMC Department of Health asked the HCMC Border Guards to work with relevant agencies to tighten control over people going through the city’s seaports. They will also increase the inspection of ships whose sailors have contact with foreign ships docked at the city’s seaports.

The captains would face strict sanctions if they let their sailors go ashore illegally.
