COVID-19: Travel has been regulated since noon yesterday in Saint-Martin and St-Barth


On Monday evening, the President of the Republic announced reinforced measures to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus and save lives. Until March 31, 2020, travel is also prohibited in Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélemy except in the following cases and only if you have a personal derogatory certificate:

- Go to your place of work if teleworking is not possible;

- Make essential purchases in local shops authorized to remain open;

- go to your doctor;

- Travel for childcare or to help vulnerable people with the strict condition of respecting barrier gestures;

- Take the air, especially with your children, only on an individual basis and around the home without any gathering.

The personal derogatory certificate must be completed directly by the individual who wishes to go out. It can be downloaded from the website and Facebook page of the Prefecture of Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin.

People who do not have a printer can copy this certificate by hand. This derogatory document must be re-filled each time you leave. Failure to comply with these rules is currently punishable by a fine of € 38.


Reminder of barrier gestures:

• wash your hands regularly

• cough and sneeze into your elbow

• use disposable tissues

• greet without shaking hands and avoid kissing

• call 15 if symptoms and stay at home

• wear a mask if you are sick
