The cays reopen but for beach activities only | New

The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) reports that the cays have been reopened, but only for beach activities.

Earlier this year, the cays were closed amid reports of boats and other parties, increasing the risk of the spread of COVID.

In a statement this afternoon, the ODPEM stressed that there should be no party or entertainment activities on the cays.

He warned that those found in breach will be prosecuted under the Disaster Risk Management Act.

Parties and other entertainment activities remain prohibited under the law and violators could be fined up to $ 1 million.

“As we seek to reduce the spread of the coronavirus in the country, the public is reminded to continue to adhere to all COVID-19 health protocols outlined by the government,” a spokesperson said.


1. Obey all protocols under the implementing ordinances relating to disaster risk management.
2. Wear a mask in all public areas
3. Disinfect and / or wash your hands as often as possible
4. Maintain a physical distance of at least six feet
