Cayman has opened up significantly BUT here's what you still CAN'T do

Today is the first business day since phase two of suppression level two was implemented to control the spread of COVID-19 in the Cayman Islands. This is the most open that Cayman has been since March and most people are breathing a huge sigh of relief. But it is important to acknowledge that it is not business as usual; there continue to be people dying from this disease all over the world and the virus has not fully left our shores. There are still systems in place to control the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

These are as follows: 

There should be 6-feet of distance between people not in the same household where ever possible, and especially in places like the supermarket.

Masks should be worn in indoor places (when around people outside of one's household) or in public spaces where social distancing is difficult to maintain.

Hands should be cleaned often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.

Those who wish to dine at restaurants must sit at least three feet apart from others in their party (unless from the same household) and should have at least six-feet of distance between their table and other tables.

A person who wishes to travel from Grand Cayman to Cayman Brac or Little Cayman CANNOT do so unless they have notified the Medical Officer of Health of the proposed travel and been tested negative for the virus. 

Public gatherings of more than 25-people are NOT allowed in Grand Cayman.

Until July 19...

You may NOT engage in dancing or karaoke at a restaurant or bar.  

You may NOT party at a nightclub.

You may NOT engage in contact sports. 

In Grand Cayman, you may NOT gather with more than 10 persons total on boats. 

In Grand Cayman, you may NOT congregate at Starfish Point, Rum Point, the Sandbar and Stingray City.
