To be allowed to board the Ferry at Moleson Creek, Corentyne to South Drain, Suriname, it said that all passengers are required to show a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test result taken within 72 hours of their scheduled time of departure to Suriname.   

As of April 10, 2021,  all persons travelling to Suriname will be required to quarantine for seven  days at a government approved quarantine hotel or guesthouse.

    Good decision by the Health Ministry. The problem main here, will be how to control movement of the small boats which go back and forth across the river.
