Turks and Caicos a popular tourist destination is gearing up to welcome visitors from July 22nd onwards. This British Overseas Territory southeast of the Bahamas will be opening up with strict health guidelines for all tourist who plan to visit. The Tourist Board said it would outline all details in the coming weeks.
“Overall my Government will ensure that the health and welfare of our industry workers, residents and guests is paramount. We will continue to work with our stakeholders from the various sectors, such as tour operators, accommodation, transportation, etc. to ensure compliance with any and all measures designed by the Ministry of Health to minimize the risk of transmission as much as possible. We are eager to welcome visitors back to our shores. This careful planning will put Turks and Caicos at the top of the competitive ladder, as visitors will recognize that we put their safety first. I am looking forward to the re-opening of our borders in a way that will safeguard the health and safety or all and ensure that TCI remains ‘Beautiful by Nature’ and as safe as possible from COVID-19,” stated Hon. Ralph Higgs. Minister of Tourism
The tourism board has confirmed that airlines from the U.S., Canada, and Europe will resume its operations when the islands start welcoming tourist. Turks and Caicos just had recorded only 12 confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to Johns Hopkins University, which tracks the spread of the virus.
