Political unrest affecting airport Island?

Does the current political turmoil in Male affect the airport Island and the hotels on the island? Is transportation to/from the airport and between the airport Island and resort Islands affected?

The unrest is confined to Male and isn't affecting the airport or the resorts. Whilst I'd always advocate caution and keeping an eye on the situation, it's worth noting that 'political unrest' is a near permanent fixture in the Maldives. There are peaks and troughs, but as long as you avoid Male you probably should be more concerned crossing the road in your home city!
