Yesterday, Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra announced that emergency measures in Peru, including the closure of borders, will continue through April 26.  Tomorrow, April 10, all routine business will be closed and no one will be allowed to leave their residence except to obtain emergency medical services (Supreme Decree Nº 061-2020-PCM).

We encourage everyone to comply with the Peruvian Government’s quarantine measures and to follow the instructions of Peruvian authorities.  Limit your time outside and carry your identification and phone.  Wear a facemask while out in public.

We are working hard to bring #AmericansHome.
