Do we have any official resources from the Chilean government, or some sort of official guidelines website?

I still recommend our good doctor:

even though he seems to be struggling to keep up with all the latest news, get's most of it in his daily updates. better than the WHO or CDC anyway.

The Chile LATAM site has removed the US from the list of countries where self quarantine applies. Someone screwed up or they indeed jumped the gun as they may know what is coming soon.

Today's modified entry:
Si viajas a Chile:

¿Para quiénes aplica?

- Clientes que vengan desde Italia o España, deberán completar un formulario y cumplir con una cuarentena de 14 días una vez que lleguen al país.

- Aquellos clientes que tengan conexiones domésticas dentro del país, la podrán realizar.

¿Para quiénes no aplica?
- Clientes que conecten en España o Italia, desde un tercer país, podrán tomar el vuelo hacia Chile.
There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

it is all so silly, and futile. Banning some countries will not stop the virus, and acting as if the US is not another Spain or Italy in the making is unrealistic.

I'm working on the assumption that they are Chilean-style, "do only as much as needed" style incompetent. Not "gross negligence leading to thousands of deaths" incompetent. But Chile is always capable of surprising me.
