Another Caribbean destination is reopening for tourism — the Turks and Caicos Islands, which has officially announced it will reopen its borders on July 22.

Turks and Caicos Premier Sharlene Cartwright-Robinson announced the move, which will come with a series of new protocols addressing “stringent standards, trainings, and personal protective equipment, among other necessary measures.”

Those protocols will be announced in the coming weeks, she said.

In a statement, the Turks and Caicos Islands Tourist Board said it “encourages travelers to consider the vacation destination as the play vacations for late July 2020 onwards.”

“We are eager and excited to reopen our borders and safely welcome travelers back to the picturesque Turks and Caicos Islands later this summer,” said Pamela Ewing, Director of Tourism for the Turks and Caicos Islands Tourist Board. “In the meantime, we are taking every precaution to ensure the Islands are safe and to enhance the exceptional experience and care afforded by the destination and our world-class hospitality partners.  Our intention is to cautiously reboot the tourism sector, laying the foundation for short- and long-term recovery.”

Flight service will resume from the United States, Canada and Europe to Turks and Caicos “as soon as the destination is ready,” officials said. 

Private jet terminals will also reopen on July 22, along with Providenciales International Airport. 

Villas, hotels and resorts, restaurants and tour operators are working on finalizing protocols, the Tourist Board said. 

The Grand Turk Cruise Center will remain closed until at least Aug. 31, 2020, however
