(RCN) The Progressive Opposition held a press conference, on Tuesday 15th of June 2021. Opposition Leader Roy McTaggart has accused the PACT government of being silent, in particular with regards to re-opening Caymans borders.

“I know that the PACT government is inexperienced and trying to come to grips with the demands of their roles within ministries and the responsibility of governing and leading our country,” McTaggart said. “However, they have had ample time to seek advice from seasoned experts within the government, Public Health England and the private sector to make reasonable judgements on reopening and restarting tourism, and to then let the country know what those decisions are. But time is running out.”

The Opposition re-opening plan consists of a September 1st date. Those who have been vaccinated and can has a form of verification can enter the Cayman Islands, with no quarantine. Those who have not had a Covid-19 vaccine will have to follow the current 14-day quarantine.

The panel agreed that the PACT Government will have to coordinate with Airlines and other members of the tourism sector.

The Press Briefing held by the Opposition has subsequently led the PACT Government to hold their own Briefing today at 2pm.
