#COVID19: Chad Bans Travellers Violating Preventive Measures From Entering Airport

The authorities are insisting that people not following COVID-19 guidelines will not be allowed to access the Airport.

The Director General of Chad’s National Civil Aviation Authority, popularly known by the French acronym ADAC, has banned all individuals not respecting the COVID-19 barrier measures put in place in the country from access into the Hassan Djamous international airport in the Chadian capital N’Djamena.

In a service note signed on Monday, Nov. 15, Kokoi Abderaman Dadi,  the director recalled Communique number 0001 of Nov. 8, 2021 issued by the inter-ministerial committee for the management of the COVID-19 pandemic which called attention to an upsurge in COVID-19 cases in Chad and called for the scrupulous respect of measures put in place to counter the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

According to the Director General of ADAC, the barrier measures include wearing of masks at all times, washing of hands and frequent cleaning of hands with hydro-alcoholic gel, and respect of physical distancing measures at all times.

“All persons not respecting these measures will be forbidden access into the N’Djamena Hassan Djamous international airport,” Dadi insisted in the note.
