Note, the transition between phases is determined by the CMO’s assessment of prevalence rates in key travel markets, vaccination rate, prevalence of Variants of Concern, the level of hospitalisations and death rates.
The Plan for Safely Reopening the Cayman Islands is built on safely reintroducing tourism to the economy and travel for residents and is a phased approach which allows for assessment at each phase. Assessments will be conducted using the best available medical science and data to determine transition to the next phase.
Transition between phases will be determined by the Chief Medical Officer’s assessment of prevalence rates in main Cayman Islands travel markets, local vaccination rate, prevalence of variants of concern, levels of hospitalisation and death rates.
As restrictions are relaxed, Public Health will continue to monitor the local prevalence rate and the spread of COVID-19. The trigger for introduction of Public Health intervention in all phases will be two non-related community clusters requiring hospital admission.
At all times, the safety, health and wellbeing of the people of the Cayman Islands remains the Government’s priority
