I’ve Received A Full Course Of Vaccination Against COVID-19, Do I Still Need To Quarantine When I Return From Travel?

All returning passengers, regardless of having a full vaccination course, are required to undergo a 14 day quarantine for the purpose of surveillance by the Medical Officer of Health as required under the Control of COVID-19 (No.3) (Amendment) Regulations, 2021. The Premier has announced the Governments plans that once 90% of those over 60 years of age have been vaccinated in the Cayman Islands, the quarantine period may be reduced to 10 days, provided the traveller meets various conditions which include a full course of a COVID-19 vaccination which has been approved by the Chief Medical Officer.

Although vaccines may protect people against COVID-19 disease and are likely to prevent death, it is likely still possible for vaccinated people to carry the virus in their throat, nose, airways and so transmit it to others. Additionally, vaccination may not give full protection to mutations of the original SARS-CoV-2 virus. The Ministry of Health recognises that some countries are relaxing requirements for people who have been vaccinated, but Cayman is fairly unique in that there is no known community spread. This means our regulations will be different to many surrounding countries.
