With over 65% of its local adult population vaccinated, the Turks and Caicos Islands Tourist Board has received an Alert Level 1 from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
The new CDC designation represents a major milestone in the Turks and Caicos Islands’ vaccine campaign, which began in January 2021 and has resulted in more than 65% of the adult population receiving at least one dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
The country’s strong vaccination rate combined with the success of its safety protocols has curbed the spread of COVID-19 and allowed for continuous safe travel to the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The destination has enjoyed strong occupancy rates over the past few months, including an average of over 70% capacity for April 2021.
In addition to its Level 1 Alert, the Turks and Caicos Islands received the Safe Travels Stamp from the World Travel Council, which denotes that its existing safety protocols align with the core requirements established by the WTTC, along with governments and health experts, which are designed to standardize safe travel. These include, but are not limited to, urging proper physical distancing, enforcing capacity limits, requiring masks in public places, and ensuring proper hand washing techniques and sanitation, among other core ‘Safe Travels’ requirements.
