Dart Real Estate is pleased to share news the Cayman Islands has been removed from a travel advisory list warning the transmission of the Zika virus.

The Zika virus spreads through the bite of an infected mosquito. The Cayman Islands Public Health Department confirms there have been no locally transmitted cases of the virus this year.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) placed the jurisdiction on the list last year when Grand Cayman reported local transmission of the virus. The Cayman Islands Public Health Department says it lobbied for the country’s removal from the list for the last several months and received confirmation of the delisting on July 28, 2017.

“This is very good news because it means that visitors can come and not worry about contracting the virus,” said Acting Medical Officer of Health Dr. Samuel Williams-Rodriguez in a media release.

With the news of the country’s removal from the Zika travel advisory list, Dart Real Estate takes this opportunity to welcome all to the Cayman Islands to enjoy its amenities. Its flagship development of Camana Bay provides diverse shopping, dining and entertainment for those who visit, work and live on the Seven Mile Beach property in Grand Cayman. The neighbouring Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa offers premium hotel services and The Residences at Seafire will provide homeowners a luxury beachfront living experience.
