Health Alert: Vanuatu Moves to Alert Level 3 (March 10, 2022)
Location: Vanuatu

The Vanuatu Ministry of Health announced March 9 community transmission of the COVID-19 virus was detected on additional islands within the country. All of Vanuatu is now at Alert Level 3, and the 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. curfew is now in effect for all areas of Vanuatu. As curfews can be announced and/or extended with little or no advance warning, U.S. citizens should make immediate preparations for the possibility of extended lockdowns, which may cause disruption to supply chains of essential items such as medication, food, and fuel. Domestic travel between islands and inbound international flights remain prohibited.

Actions to take:

  • Monitor local media and government websites for updates.
  • Review your personal emergency preparedness plans.
  • Ensure you have sufficient supply of medication, food, water, fuel, and other necessities in case of extended lockdown.
