Update: From Monday, 1 June 2020, the curfew and Regulations under the Public Health Law were updated to partially lift restrictions. You can find detailed information on all policies that are currently in effect here. This blog was published on Friday, 10 April 2020 and the information below was accurate at that time.
We understand how important Easter weekend is to the Cayman Islands, especially given the significance of the holiday to families.
In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic and local situation, the Cayman Islands is currently under a "soft curfew" during the day from Monday to Saturday from 5am - 7pm followed by a "hard curfew" from 7pm - 5am daily and all day on Sunday.
This means that during Easter Sunday the Cayman Islands are under a hard curfew for 24 hours of the day.
All Easter camping, and social gatherings on beaches, and elsewhere are not permitted.
We know that the curfew in the Cayman Islands can be particularly challenging during celebrations such as Easter. Here are 24 ideas for entertaining families, friends and loved ones during curfew while observing Shelter in Place Regulations currently in place:
1. Cultural Activities
Let’s talk Cul-Cha! There's an abundance of things do in Cayman and beyond, across the world.
Here are a few cultural activities you can get involved with over Easter weekend.
2. Backyard Adventures
In order to comply with the shelter-in-place regulations and help save lives, you should make sure all outdoor activities are limited to your own property. This doesn't mean you can't have fun, though.
Backyard adventures are a fun way to do something new and yet familiar with your household. See how adventurous your garden can become when you make new memories and share stories under the stars. Here are some ideas:
▪ Camp out in the backyard: Pitch a tent, roll out some sleeping bags and tell stories. You may even catch a glimpse of an owl, or other cool night creatures.
3. Connect with family and friends
Sad that you won’t see those you love the most this Easter? Don’t worry here are some things you can do to connect virtually!
*Make sure to take a photo and share with your loved ones letting them know you are thinking of them during this time of social distancing and self-quarantining.
4. Fun and Games
We know families, friends, and households can really connect over a fun game, so why not have a game night that will last for hours?
5. Explore the World from your couch
There are so many animal and places to explore and no better time than now to take it all in. Here's a link to multiple webcam experiences but we’ve shared our favourites below:
6. Music(als) to our ears
Various musicals and concerts are being streamed online for people having to stay at home. That’s musical magic!
Stay Home to Save Lives
