Mask Wearing and Further Information

Face masks are currently mandatory in all public areas including transport. To protect yourself and others, we strongly advise you to wash your hands with soap and water. You can also use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.. Avoid touching your face and keep 6ft distance from others when possible. If you are using a reusable face mask, ensure to wash your face mask with soap between uses. We strongly recommend K95 and N95 masks if possible when indoors. Bring plenty of soap, hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes with you as these supplies may be limited in Cuba.
