Turks and Caicos Now Open, Some Resorts Remain Closed
Several resorts that had reopened in the Turks and Caicos have had to temporarily shut their doors again due to a spike in Covid cases, according to Travel Weekly.
The destination's Providenciales Airport and private jet terminals had reopened to international travelers on July 22.
The now-closed properties include the Alexandra and Blue Haven resorts, members of the four-property Turks and Caicos Collection. Their reopening dates now are set for Oct. 15.
The Collection's Beach House resort currently is housing medical personnel and visiting government staff and has not announced a reopening date.
The fourth property, Ambergris Cay, a private island resort with its own airport, 10 beachfront suites and several three- and four-bedroom luxury villas, is fully open and operating.
Como Parrot Cay, another private island resort, has suspended all new arrivals and has not yet announced a new reopening date.
Club Med Turquoise has delayed its reopening to Oct. 24; Beaches Turks and Caicos moved its opening date to Oct. 14.
Robinson imposed new curfews through Aug. 31 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Providenciales, North Caicos and Parrot Cay, reduced to 10 the number of people who can gather in public on those three islands and set a 25-person gathering limit for Grand Turk, South Caicos, East Caicos and Middle Caicos.
