Beaches open Tuesday with some restrictions

Premier Alden McLaughlin at Friday’s press briefing

(CNS): There will be no hard curfew during the day this Sunday, but otherwise the current lockdown measures will remain much the same until next Tuesday, 18 May, following the long weekend. But after that, people will be able to exercise on the beach, swim in the sea and go fishing, as well as swim and play tennis at their strata, though there will be restrictions to all these longed for activities

Police Commissioner Derek Byrne outlined the new curfew regulations at Friday’s press briefing, where he explained that, from Tuesday, the time allowed for daily exercise is increasing from 90 minutes to two hours but still must be between 5:15am and 7pm. However, people can now drive to the beach or other locations in order to exercise, starting this weekend.

And from Tuesday, people will be allowed to once again go to the public beaches, but only for exercise, between 5:15am and 7pm, Monday to Saturday, subject to the restrictions by day of the week and surname (A-K on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, L-Z on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). This is to reduce the number of people on the beach on any given day, the premier explained.

However, there will still be no beach access at all on Sundays. This, the premier explained, is because they could not find a way to make access fair without allowing everyone onto the beach.

Exercise at the beach includes walking, swimming and fishing from the shoreline, as well as paddle-boarding and kayaking in sight of shore, but not scuba diving or riding waverunners. And people must still practice social distancing with no groups larger than two people. No picnics, camping, barbecuing, sunbathing or other gatherings are yet permitted on public beaches.

Fishing by boat will also be permitted under the new rules from 5:15am to 7pm, but only two people can be on board. No inter-island travel is allowed and boats will not be allowed to drop anchor or remain at Starfish Point, Rum Point and the Sandbar, not will it be permitted to exercise, fish or swim at these locations except for people who live there.

These “no-go zones” are Cayman’s major marine attractions, Premier Alden McLaughlin explained. Reminiscing about “happy times” sitting in the shallow water, drinking and listening to music, he said this was exactly the type of behaviour they are trying to prevent “during this critical period”.

Sailing boats and leisure craft are still not allowed.

Other relaxations of the shelter-in-place rules will be access to pools and tennis court in strata properties, but people must maintain social distancing rules, so people who are not from the same household are limited to groups of two.

However, there was a big ‘no’ to playground use by children even in strata properties. McLaughlin said that Chief Medical Officer Dr John Lee was “absolutely terrified of that prospect” because, as a group, children are the biggest single vector of the disease.

“They are generally asymptomatic; they naturally find it difficult to social distance, and transmit the disease very effectively,” he said, adding that, like early learning centres, playgrounds will be among the last things to be re-opened.

CoP Byrne said the hard lockdown curfew, which remains in place between 8pm and 5am every day including Sunday, became effective Friday 15 May at 5am and will run for 18 days until 5am on Tuesday, 2 June.

“I think we can all have a small moment of celebration today,” the premier said, noting that the easing of restriction was because results are trending “very much in the right direction”. He said this meant that Cayman was able to move from Level 4 – high suppression to Level 3 – moderate suppression.

He thanked the people of the Cayman Islands for their cooperation and support for the government over measures taken and the many sacrifices to ensure that the virus does not spread rapidly through the community “harming health, causing death and reeking even more economic damage than the shutdown necessarily has done and is doing”.

    Being that kayaking and paddleboarding are allowed, I would assume this extends to surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding?

    CNS, please see if you can confirm by asking at the briefing or other means?

    I have no idea who crafted the new edict regarding the ability to exercise in the water but what it seems to represent is a sort of halfway house. Undoubtedly our Police Commissioner didn’t want to grant water access at all for the simple reason that is harder to police and therefore requires more manpower. I suppose from his perspective granting water access only 3 days a week for two hours each day is tolerable given what would likely have been a political backlash if he hadn’t. Sadly, what he has created is his own policing conundrum and made the whole process a bit of a mess. So one can exercise every day for two hours but not in the ocean unless it is your letter day? What if you own waterfront? Does someone who owns waterfront have to sit on his dock and look at the water 4 days a week? Actually, is he breaking the law if he goes out on his dock? How many people go to the beach to swim for exercise and have their identification on their person while they engage in the activity? Will officers be checking the identification of those people near the water with bathing suits on? Will officers be blowing whistles on the beach forcing those in the water to come out and show their id? What if an older person wants to get in the ocean and rest in the water? Does that activity count? What if someone is resting between bouts of exercise? Even the concept of being able to exercise for a set time limit is ridiculous. What if I want to ride my bike out to Rum Point? The entire situation reminds me of a joke from the Soviet era. Two policemen pass a cyclist an hour before curfew is to begin. The first officer shoots the cyclist. The other officer asks why did he kill the man? The first officer replies; I know where he lives. He would never have made it home on time.

    The hardest thing for many is the process of relinquishing control once they have it. The process inevitably leads to slightly silly results like water access for only a maximum of 6 hours per week. I submit It is illogical at this stage to prevent exercise for more than 2 hours since it is unlikely I am going to have a watchee sitting over me with a stopwatch…or am I?

    Maybe we should rethink things. It is hard work to police an island. Best to simplify it. It would be so much easier if folks were only allowed out once a week to shop. No exercise, no water access and police the only people with freedom of movement. A little something to look forward to.

    The point, gentlemen, is that you have worked very hard to manage the situation, have been successful and should be applauded. However rules that people deem to be silly are unlikely to be obeyed unless one lives in a strictly authoritarian state. In the end, one should always remember that respect and power are things easily squandered.

    Dear Governor,

    Please let researchers in the UK we have found some excellent candidates for the vaccine tests now underway in the UK.

    We have a number of people who have no fear at all about contracting COVID-19. They have every confidence in their vitality and justifiably continue to chastise our fears and concerns as being irrational.

    We applaud their bravery and have every confidence that they will prove to be perfect candidates for double blind testing of the potential vaccines.

    Many of them are from the UK and are far more intelligent than us locals so they will understand the importance of this mission. We’d be happy for them to return on the next airbridge flight in order to begin their heroic work.

    Thank you sir.

    Sincerely,

    A bit off topic but since we are talking about the beach, I wonder if there’s a proposal we can all or *mostly* unite behind. The lockdown has taken out the two remaining 7MB venues for beach bars. Calico Jacks and Royal Palms are gone forever. It was inevitable but the lockdown accelerated the end. Beach suites I think will still allow locals but that is in question as well and really lacks what RP and CJ had in my opinion.

    I don’t know if the Governor’s residence is owned by the Crown or CI Gov but it seems to be an overly extravagent use of this property. Wouldn’t it be better to relocate the Governor to a new location and deisgnate the beach property as a public space forever? The buildings could easily be converted to a beach bar/restaurant with facilities for the enjoyment of locals without the threat of being swallowed up by development. I’m not proposing that the government should get into the beach bar business, but simply lease the property to someone with strict covenants that it remain open to locals among other things. The CI Gov would also benefit from a hefty monthly lease. I’ve seen this proposal come up a few times in the past and thought it a worthy idea for discussion.

    All of these restrictions are nonsense caused by the still prevailing hysteria. The government is not really concerned with old people, or it would take steps to isolate and help them. What the government is really concerned about is the phantom fear that THEY will somehow catch the virus. It is nonsensical to shutdown the economy and borders for a bunch of older people who are not even in the workforce. The entire country can run just fine without the older people’s input, and they can be protected and isolated for as long as necessary.

    If the government were really concerned about older people, they would go and find each one and prevent them from coming in contact with more than a few other people who were known to be healthy. Since the current loss in revenue to government is probably on the order of 25 million dollars per month, they could spend millions of dollars on tracking down the three thousand or so older people and isolating them safely. Meanwhile everyone else could go back to work, the borders could reopen, and the economy would rebound and be just fine.

    It is tantamount to idiocy running around the whole population trying to find “carriers”. Focus on the people that are at risk, and control their exposure to others.

    • Spoken truth says:

      Well it would be easy to isolate and worry about the 3000 or so old ppl, but it’s not just them that need protecting, oh foolish one! There are many more high risk individuals, too. Of course, you haven’t heard there were absolutely “healthy” ppl that died….you could be a high risk person and not even know just as you sit there because of a condition unknown to you i.e. diabetes, cancer, etc. I don’t expect you to find/have value in “our old ppl or the high risk” (thank God, my Premier and the others does) since your love is only for money and the only connections you have is with yourself and the economy. Too bad you didn’t take a flight to somewhere you could make money and be out and about living life normally, thinking so what if I catch Covid-19 at least I got to go to work, dress-up and eat fancily. I wonder if you even though abt what you were typing before you did!! SMH

      Given that our hospitals are fine, our nursing home are fine all in-spite of an increasing number of positive COVID cases as we test more people, it correlates that those who were asymptomatic before the lock-down have been amongst us for months going to the supermarket and gas station spreading the virus and still no rampant COVID cases.
      Back in March the CIG looked overseas and given the miscalculations by the British Government’s computer models they thought the hell unleashed in Europe could happen here, hence the 1,000 deaths CIG remark, but they have failed to means-test or reassess our real-life situation here in Cayman and blindly continued along mimicking the lock-down path enacted in the UK and Europe. They believed they could be the ones to save a 1,000 lives and worth the severe losses and damage to other parts off our economy to achieve it. A noble aspiration.
      However, we all know that the UK COVID calculations were completely wrong and it was likely only to be a handful of deaths here even without any preventative measures. However the plan was now in full motion here in Cayman and changing course would undermine their authority. They continued to play this charade to cover their poorly made decisions and unwillingness to be flexible or realistic. We had in essence a one-trick pony show. When faced with a total loss of face people will revert to diversionary tactics and self pontification. We are now in this zone and even though every news media and government body is reporting thousands of people’s lives being devastated, the crippling of our economy and untold suffering to our people, they continue to be fixated on a god-like wish to have not one single death from COVID. I recall the quote: “The road to hell is paved with good intention”. This could not be more true today.
      I contend that after the initial 14 day quarantine period and with our closed borders we could have opened our local economy and continued life as normal and we would have not had any surge in COVID cases. Our economy would have been able to continue unabated and we would not have such monumental mess to fix.
      95% of people have little to no ill effect from COVID. Do take extra care around those who at a higher risk i.e. the over 70’s and medically compromised – they should have proper N95 face masks to protect themselves. That is where CIG needs to focus its attention. This has been blown out of all proportion and is leading us all into financial, social and economic purgatory. Who will brave enough to take responsibility for that when the reckoning comes?

But you didn’t so you wait until after the fact and say how we could have saved the economy etc. You totally ignore the fact that lockdown may have played a significant part in the reduced number of deaths.Dream on.

    I assume thousands of people in Cayman have passed the virus already in Jan/Feb/March.

    What the gov has done has destroyed the economy and peoples mental health.

    Lets be honest, in biological war fare you can infect thousands in a mere hours or days.

    You can’t stop nature or a virus, the conditions in Cayman have made the recovery very quickly.

    Cayman spared again to the good energy(Sun, Air) surrounding the islands.

    Lets be honest most of us are not in great health but like I said the dangers of the virus isn’t the virus it’s the CIG attack on the people in the mere defense of protection of safety of the community.

    The complexity of the immune system is beyond most peoples understanding here in Cayman.

Had government not acted in the manner that they did, and had people paid for it with their lives, you and others would have been incensed that government did not go into quarantine. What’s so hard about that? No conspiracy, no mystery.

      As to your point that the conditions in Cayman have made the recovery very quickly because of good energy surrounding the islands, pure bunk. You call Mount Trashmore burning day and night “good air”. A recent article posted by CNN dispelled the fallacy that the air quality is good…

    Under the new regulations, can someone who owns private property with beach access go onto their own beach on a Sunday? Under the previous beach “hard curfew” a clear distinction was drawn between “public beach” and private property with beach access. Private owners were only forbidden from going beyond the high water mark. So a beach front private owner could clearly be on the rest of “their” beach on any day, including Sunday. The new regulations published today do not make this public/private distinction. They simply state “no person shall exercise on a beach on a Sunday.” On the face of it this prevents a private owner of beachfront property being on any part of their beach on a Sunday. This is increasing the lock down on such persons, not reducing the lock down. Was this the intention – i.e. a homeowner with beachfront property can’t be in part of his own “yard’ on a Sunday?

    — In separate, stark warnings, two major European leaders have bluntly told their citizens that the world needs to adapt to living with the coronavirus and cannot wait to be saved by the development of a vaccine.

    ’’We are facing a calculated risk, in the awareness … that the epidemiological curve could go back up,” Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said late Saturday. “We are confronting this risk, and we need to accept it, otherwise we would never be able to relaunch.”

    Conte added that Italy could “not afford” to wait until a vaccine was developed. Health experts say the world could be months, if not years, away from having a vaccine available to everyone despite the scientific gold rush now on to create such a vaccine.

When people start pushing back on the extent of these restrictions and questioning both their proportionality and relevance to the task at hand, suppression of the virus, the Premier went on a complete tirade about lawyers and buff 35 year olds thinking they are invulnerable. So please tell me who is acting in an immature manner?
      When it comes to staying safe I have only heard very few comments against the need of having a reasonable lock down with effective social distancing. Most people see this as common sense. People are not up in arms about any restrictions they are increasingly angry about the way these restrictions were created, the fact that they often seem to be arbitary and the rationale behind them.
      In terms of coming out of this relatively unscathed the latest information from John Hopkins University indicates that if Cayman had the same per capita deaths as the USA we would have had 16. Very few people are advocating we follow the US model and we have the luxury of being able to close our borders and isolate effectively. We were never going to track anything close to the US here but the powers that be keep bringing them up simply to scare us. You should be asking yourself the question – why?

        Few of the governments knew what they were facing, especially once Italy got hit so hard. Stop your sissy little whining for having had to close your doors for a month. The economy would have been affected regardless; the world shut down…

        “You should be asking yourself the question – why?” Let me guess, your answers to this are one of the following, or all of them together:

        1. It’s the Bilderberg Group
        2. It’s a Jewish Conspiracy
        3. It’s the Reptile Aliens among us commanding our world leaders to do so
        4. Space Aliens commanded it so that they could come as “saviours” to subjugate us
        5. World Leaders wanted to bankrupt the world economy so that we become more dependent on government

        If your theory is different than one of these, kindly enlighten the Ignorant & Uninformed. I’d love to hear your “WHY”. Enlighten us please!

          Wow did you come up with all those by yourself? Clever Human.
          Sorry but no, nothing so creative. Politicians have been working for decades (and probably centuries) with much simpler manipulation of human traits. The first one is fear. Was it a coincidence that Uncle Alden decided to start his monologues at the beginning of the lockdown with all those wonderful scary numbers from very large countries? No. He knew what he was doing and wanted everyone to hear them to make them aware of the spread of the virus and also to instill a little fear. It’s much easier to make people do what you want when they are afraid. When he mentions the USA he always does so in a wide eyed way to infer they are particularly bad. I grant you in many ways they have not handled the crisis well, but when you actually look at the numbers they are not the worst country per capita by a long shot. They are in the middle of the pack behind countries like Spain and the UK. Obviously many states are now opening up their economies and the next month will be telling in terms of whether the virus increases or decreases in prevalence. So is it the reality of the USA that Alden is trying to refer to here or what he wants your perception of the USA to be?
          The second manipulation politicians like to engage in is the “distract / deflect” technique. A common example of this is when politicians blame foreigners for something or launch a military raid against an old enemy.
          Here fear is certainly being used as one distraction but to what? No clear winner yet but I do find it very interesting that Cayman has still not outlined its objectives for post peak virus time. This is unlike many other Caribbean islands and overseas territories. Right now there is no stated endgame that we are moving towards. The charitable amongst us would say this is simply because the government wants to wait to see how this all plays out. Unfortunately governments job isn’t to wait, it is to plan and prepare and a major part of this is in the communication of the overall strategy so the country knows what it is doing apart from sitting at home.

          • XRP says:

            Okay, so you’re far more rational than most. I was hoping for a good alien story.

            Sure, so everyone, including government manipulates, to a degree. And everyone deflects, again, to a degree. Everyone, including Alden started off with big scary numbers, because that’s what they thought may happen; and there was the distinct possibility that those numbers could be correct. We now know better. Hindsight is wonderful, isn’t it.

            So if it’s not the aliens, the Bilderberg Group, etc. to what purpose (other than the one to protect the public)? Surely there has to be some purpose if not that….

    This whole thing is becoming a farce. It’s almost a desperate show of power rather than a common sense approach to lifting the arbitrary restrictions. I get they don’t want too many people on the beaches but coming to a press conference without a full list of activities that people can and can’t do is just amateurish. So you can go snorkelling but you can’t go diving. Can you go snorkelling? Depends how far from shore you are apparently. You can go paddle boarding but can you go surfing? It’s a chaotic way to approach this.
    Everyone has their own thing they want to do. If you can do it and be respectful of social distancing then let them do it. Create restrictions which make sense rather than pander to certain groups. Restrict people to 2 people to a boat and let them do what they want. If you don’t want them meeting up then ban boats from specific areas like rum point for the next 3 months, ban boats from rafting up and restrict boats from anchoring within 50 yards of another boat in any other location. There are always ways of doing this but they are being reactive rather than proactive and petty rather than being open minded that people can do things with some common sense restrictions. You want to ban specific things because there is a legitimate reason then ban them and state the reason.
    We are 8 weeks in and we are still focused on the small stuff. We should have had full presentations from both the minister of tourism and the minister of finance by now telling us governments initial plans for the next 6 months to a year. They need to step up their game and start moving from suppression to effective communication of government strategy regarding the economic impact and how they are going to manage it. It’s time to move into another gear rather than worrying about which watersports people can and can’t do.

There shouldn’t be a problem? If this your kind of thinking then,lamentably, it’s flawed. 1) There are many healthy younger people in hospitals across America and Europe right now fighting for their lives. That initial assumption about covid19 is being proven wrong. 2) This is not just a matter of you getting infected. It’s also about who you spread it to. Covid19 is shown to be highly infectious even if you don’t display any symptoms. So while you go about “bravely”, you could be spreading it to other people who may be themselves vulnerable to this disease or have family members who are.

To open the airport in September with the virus still present? Or, keeping borders closed until such time as the virus is no longer present which make take years? If that’s not selfish then it’s insanity, take your pick. On the flip side, you are no more likely to get infected if you stay *voluntarily* in a lockdown posture. If the shoe fits, wear it.

        We don’t take our phones to the beach, one more thing to worry about being stolen whole we swim.

      We don’t need you clogging up the beach in order to get a tan.

      What would you propose? A-K from 6am to midday, then L-Z midday to 6pm? How exactly do you expect them to split day 7 or are you suggesting a free for all on the beaches after we’ve come so far over 8 weeks?

        Give A- K Sunday. No one goes on Monday. Beach gets a day off, everyone gets 3 days including one weekend day. Not rocket science.

        The beaches have not been closed 8 weeks. All the way up to Easter they were open to us all, and every single press conference the COP reported no problems, quiet, everyone social distancing. Then came Easter, the one time in the whole year that EVERYONE goes camping. It was inevitable. Easter is done and now the whole island is still being punished for the actions of those idiots, and now just in case any other idiots want to have a go, likely on SMB. Police it.

        Happy to close stingray city, etc. and even the beach on Sunday. I just wish they would make beach days like exercise days, and for 3 hours for those who have long walks to get there.

      A traffic officer pulled INTO my private property in attempt to enforce the traffic law on last Sunday hard curfew – of all the days I wish to enjoy my front yard. I demanded he leave on the grounds that he can’t tell people to slow down at Breakers.

      A complaint has been filed with Ombudsman for infringing on my right to private property, however the hated officer has since refused to offer a simple apology, because according to them, the police have a right to come onto private property to give healthcare advice.

      I na hear more BS in my life. This exactly why the RCIPS should be Caymanians only because some of them foreign officers have no consideration for our local rights. This curfew power gone to their heads!
