With recent COVID-19 closures in Chinese ports, vessels are encountering challenges with obtaining the required phytosanitary certificates from the recognized Asian Gypsy Moth inspection authorities.  The US Department of Agriculture has issued new guidance to address these challenges.  The guidance is similar to what the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has advised, however no official update is expected to be issued before the end of Canada’s high-risk period on September 15th.
