Health notice

In light of reported outbreaks of cholera in Haiti and Cuba, the Ministry of Health is advising persons travelling to those countries to take the following precautions.

Only drink water that has been boiled for at least three to four minutes, or treated with two drops of household bleach per litre of water (six drops per gallon of water). The water should stand for half-an-hour before use.

Other safe beverages include tea and coffee made with boiled or treated water, as well as drinks that have been bottled and sealed, such as bottled water, carbonated drinks and sports drinks.

Persons should not place ice in drinks, and should only eat foods that have been thoroughly cooked and are still hot, or fruit that they have peeled themselves.
