Sierra Leone – Port Closures/Ebola virus

10 September 2014

Members will already be aware of the risks and precautions to be taken in relation to the Ebola virus affecting some West African countries, see the Club’s News Alert (click here).

Members should note that we have been advised by the Budd Group, who have offices in a number of African countries, that all Sierra Leone ports will be closed from 19 to 21 September 2014. The closure is due to a government curfew preventing people from leaving their homes on those dates in order to try to reduce the risk of contagion by the Ebola virus. The measure is to be enforced by the military.
