Inter-Island Travel Limited to Essential Services or Emergencies
The National Emergency Operations Centre reminds the public that travel remains restricted between the three Cayman Islands until further notice.
Persons should only travel between Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac to provide essential services, as approved by the Ministry of International Trade, or for emergency medical purposes, with the permission of the Medical Officer of Health or the Director of the Sister Islands Health Services.
“The process of expedited mass testing is at different stages on the three Islands, and hence so are the measures needed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As such, current public health regulations limit travel between the Islands to only those persons providing essential services or in need of urgent medical care. We urge members of the public to remain patient and continue to respect the regulations until we can resume inter-island travel in a way that keeps all three communities safe”, says Hon. Moses Kirkconnell, Minister for Tourism.
While government realises that there may be other compelling reasons for travel, all persons wishing to move between the islands must first notify the Medical Officer of Health or Director of the Sister Islands Health Services. They must also undergo a 14-day mandatory isolation period at a Government facility, as well as mandatory testing and direct transportation to the airport following a negative result.
