Turks & Caicos Successfully Downgraded to Risk Level 1 by CDC

On June 7th, the risk level for the Turks & Caicos Islands by the Centers for Disease Control was updated to LEVEL 1, indicating low COVID-19 numbers in the country.

Turks & Caicos has successfully decreased its number of cases throughout the country with numbers not exceeding 20 and dropping to as low as 3 cases country-wide over the last month. Strengthening the country’s low risk position is its strong vaccination roll-out which has seen 52% of adults fully vaccinated with both doses of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine, and more than 60% of the population having received their first doses.

Turks & Caicos is quickly approaching its goal of 70% vaccination by July 2021, and will receive its fourth batch of the vaccine on June 20th.
