'Unlocking of economic activity' begins today

Cayman has reached another COVID-19 milestone today as more businesses reopen.

On June 22, Cayman is expected to move to level 2 suppression of COVID-19. This phase will see the allowance of external guardians and helpers in the home. More high touch businesses will open. Staycations will be allowed.

But before we move to this phase, there will be a two-phased opening up of economic activity.

As of today, June 1, all construction and related businesses will be allowed to operate. All retail and real estate businesses will be allowed to operate. Masks and social distancing will be required.

As of June 7, groups of up to 6 people at a table will be allowed to dine at restaurants and bars that have outdoor/ patio seating as a part of the premises. Social distancing will be required for those who are not a part of the same household. Tables must be at least 8 feet apart. Indoor seating or serving will not be allowed. This will be allowed until 9 pm.

Restaurant deliveries will be allowed until 11 pm.

Persons employed by businesses other than restaurants will be able to deliver until 11 pm.

Businesses not specified above will continue to stay closed with employees working remotely.
