What To Expect From Dominica?
Stringent protocols are expected from the opening of tourism on August 7th. The country is excited to once again be offering travelers an opportunity to experience the Nature Island of the Caribbean. Dominica's top priority is to keep travelers and its residents free from the spread of the virus.
The Minister said that health and safety guidelines have been carefully deliberated and formally announced. This is to keep the probability that the new cases of COVID-19 may be recorded once the borders are reopened as low as possible.
What's more interesting, Dominica's many famous nature-based activities, secluded beaches, and long meandering rain forest hikes are perfectly positioned for a socially distanced travel experience. And what better way remove the stresses of the pandemic than fully indulging ourselves to the great outdoors and wholesome cuisines of Dominica.
Today, Dominica is one of the safest countries to travel to with no COVID-19 deaths and only 18 recorded cases.
