Back to business

Returning to a new normal after COVID-19

It was a long spring in the Cayman Islands, seemingly much longer than the 13 weeks and a day that typically mark the season of renewal. The onset of summer has brought a renewal of its own as most businesses have been allowed to reopen after several months of closure because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

At Dart developments and businesses, there is renewed activity as the hotels offer staycations, shops serve customers and staff members return to the office.
