Cayman Islands Borders Opening Has Been Rescheduled to October 1, 2020
We received word Mid-August, the hopeful opening of the Cayman Islands borders that was scheduled for September 1, was rescheudled to October 1. Because of the rise in Covid-19 outbreaks in the US, the Government felt it best to push it out and reassess as we get closer.
Some UK visitors that own homes or rental property on island to arrive mid-September with an extended stay in Cayman. The Government is still fine tuning protocols. An preliminary outline for the process would include guests submitting an application to Travel Time , a negative Covid-19 test must be obtained 72 hours prior to departure, self isolation at their home/condo, another Covid-19 test eight (8) days after arrival on island and monitoring with a BioButton.
The BioButton (or similar device) tracks health data points, including temperature and heart rate. It alters public health officials to any early signs of infection. The button also allows for geofencing to ensure arriving passengers are keeping to the terms of the protocols of their isolation.
October 1 is still the date for a phased re-opening of the border. The safety and risk will be assessed as we get closer to this date. The Government is aiming to reduce the risk of re-introduction of Covid-19 to the community.
