We are all understandably concerned by the recent escalation of Covid-19 and I just wanted to reassure those of you who are travelling to the BVI imminently and those of you who are planning a holiday to the BVI.
This is an excerpt from a statement issued by the BVI’s Minister for Health and Social Development the Hon Carvin Malone….
“While there are still no confirmed cases of COVID-19 within our Territory, we are keeping a high level of vigilance and monitoring the global spread of the virus.“
And another excerpt from a statement issued by British Airways……
ENHANCED AIRCRAFT CLEANING
The cleanliness of our aircraft is of utmost importance. We have reviewed and made changes to our cleaning programme for aircraft including increasing our cleaning teams and audit inspections. Our disinfectant cleaning fluids are used on every aircraft after each flight to thoroughly clean all hard surfaces in the cabins and lavatories.
All our aircraft are fitted with HEPA filters which remove particulate and bacterial contamination and provide passengers with clean air. They provide the same level of air filtration as hospital operating theatres.
While we can of course make no guarantees; at the time of writing, it would appear that the BVI is one of the safest places on the planet to visit right now.
Be safe and stay well.
Managing Director, BVI Holidays
