Following the confirmation of 24 community transmission cases of COVID-19 on Grand Cayman, anyone travelling to the Sister Islands from Grand Cayman who has not been fully vaccinated within the previous 14 days must provide a negative PCR test certificate from an approved laboratory, no more than 48 hours prior to departure.
Inter-island travel from Grand Cayman to the Sister Islands will remain the same for verifiably vaccinated individuals.
Premier Hon. Wayne Panton announced at a press conference on Friday, 17 September at the Government Administration Building the inter-island travel restrictions, which will go into effect once the revised travel and boating regulations are published early next week.
The increased COVID-19 suppression measures follow the Government’s decision to pause the transition from Phase Three to Phase Four of the Cayman Islands’ border reopening plan earlier this week in the face of renewed community transmission of the virus and increased public concern.
