It is with great hope, excitement, and bated breath that we are able to announce the reopening of the Providenciales International Airport (PLS). It’s true, on May 29th the Premier of Turks and Caicos, Sharlene Cartwright-Robinson, announced the airport will reopen to domestic and international travelers on July 22nd. The specifics regarding the requirements and procedures have not been finalized or announced yet, but wearing masks in public places will be required through the rest of 2020.
As you can imagine the closing of a country’s borders to international travel takes a significant toll on the people, businesses, and overall economy when 80-85% of revenue in the country comes from tourism. Safe to say our thoughts and prayers have been with the citizens of TCI. While the country is dying to reopen and get back to normal, there is an equal number of belongers concerned that visitors could lead to a spike in new COVID cases. It is certainly a delicate situation and one that the Premier and Governor have navigated extremely well. Turks and Caicos experienced 12 total active cases and as of May 30th that number is zero, sadly they had one death. Considering the incredible challenges presented by this highly communicable virus the government officials of TCI deserve a big round of applause.
