Cayman Compass: Body sensor aims to provide early warning system for COVID-19

As part of a private sector taskforce formed to support the safe reopening of the country’s borders, Dart is trialling a wearable biodevice as an additional precaution for hospitality staff when tourists return to the Cayman Islands. The BioButton continuously monitors heart rate, respiratory rate and body temperature as potential COVID-19 symptoms, alerting the wearer to any changes in their vitals.

Dart restarts 2020 Tree Give

Late last year, Dart announced a donation of 366 trees — one for each day of the 2020 leap year — to the Cayman Islands. While the pandemic put a temporary pause on plantings, Dart Manager of Community Development Dominic Ross says the project is restarting in earnest.


How the Cayman Islands plans to reopen for tourism

The question isn't if and the question isn't why. 

There was no doubt among the speakers for the online Chamber of Commerce 2020 Economic Forum on 14 August that visitors must again be allowed to return to the Cayman Islands despite the global COVID-19 pandemic. The questions are when, how and to whom to reopen Cayman's borders and several of the speakers in the full-day conference addressed those issues.


The future Mount Greenmore

Remediation of the George Town Landfill could turn Mount Trashmore green in more ways than one. Not only will capping the mound include a layer of topsoil that will one day support the growth of grasses and shrubs, but remediation will also reduce the Cayman Islands’ impact on global warming. 


Dart's response to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic remains a global crisis on an unprecedented scale. At Dart, our collective priority is protecting the health and safety of our people and our community, while continuing daily business operations as best as we can. 

As the virus continues to have an impact on human welfare and global economies, Dart is closely monitoring advice and guidelines from the Cayman Islands Government and international health authorities and adapting accordingly. With the successful steps taken locally to suppress the virus and widespread testing under way, the Cayman Islands is now at Level 2 (minimal suppression) in its management of COVID-19, facilitating the continued controlled reopening of the local economy.


Charting Cayman's future

At the beginning of 2020, the concept of a global lockdown would have been unfathomable. Months later, the devastating effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on lives and livelihoods around the world remains hard to comprehend.

Even in the Cayman Islands, where the spread of the virus has been successfully suppressed, COVID-19 has caused upheavals in every aspect of daily life. As the world looks to define a "new normal," many people are taking the opportunity to pause, reflect and reimagine a better future.


CIS welcomes a new director

It's been a year of change at Cayman International School. 

After having to act quickly and adapt to fully remote and online learning because of the COVID-19 pandemic, CIS — as the school is more often called — has also welcomed a new director, something that was planned for almost a year before the pandemic started.
