Changes to the Control and Management of COVID-19 regulations, which came into effect today Friday, April 29 2022, relate specifically to public gatherings, processions, parades, boating, sporting activities and ticket offences. The Cayman Islands’ indoor mask mandate will remain in effect.
Interim Chief Medical Officer Dr Autilia Newton urged the public to remain compliant with the mask-wearing requirements as other restrictions continue to be eased.
While we acknowledge that some countries have lifted mask-wearing requirements, we have to consider and assess the implications for protecting our population and healthcare system.
Mask-wearing is still required for indoor events where a distance of six feet cannot be constantly maintained, especially since we have noticed a recent increase in new cases over the last four weeks.
In addition, all travellers are also expected to comply with mask-wearing requirements, whether they enter the Cayman Islands by air or sea. In order for a cruise ship to call on the Cayman Islands, visitors must be vaccinated and tested prior to embarkation, in the same way as air visitors must be vaccinated and tested prior to arrival. Once in the Cayman Islands, they are expected to comply with local regulations by wearing a mask before entering establishments or taking public transport.
Owners and operators of restaurants and bars are reminded that servers and front of house staff are required to wear masks or cloth face coverings while serving customers.
While a number of US based airlines have removed the requirement for passengers to wear masks on board domestic flights, inbound flights to the Cayman Islands will still require passengers to wear masks during the flight.
The regulations have also increased public gathering limits for indoor events to 750 persons. The public gathering limit for outdoor areas has been removed, as well as the requirement for a person to obtain permission from the Cabinet to hold a procession or a parade. The removal of the public gathering limit for outdoor areas extends to boats and sporting events, however boats and sporting venues must still continue to abide by their legal occupancy requirements.
These Control and Management of COVID-19 (No. 3) Regulations, 2022 are currently scheduled to expire on June 30, 2022.
