TCI – Level #1 CDC Travel Destination

The Turks and Caicos becomes a level #1 destination, in more ways than one.  

If travel is on your mind these days—after all that time pent-up, we’re guessing that it probably is—you’ll be thrilled to know that the Turks and Caicos is now rated level 1 by the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention. 

As an award-winning beach destination, we’re used to being first, but this certification is important for you, the traveller. 

“On November 21, 2020, CDC adapted its 3-level notice system to a 4-level system for COVID-19 and updated criteria used to determine THN (travel health notice) levels. The system was updated to align with the same incidence rate or case count thresholds adopted by recognized public health organizations and shares a common 4-level structure with the U.S. Department of State’s Travel Advisory external icon system.”

The CDC determines the Travel Health Notices according to COVID-19 data provided by the World Health Organization and other official sources. If a destination doesn’t provide data, their specific THN level is considered “unknown” and potential travelers are advised to consider it a THN Level 4 location.

But enough about levels and scores. We just wanted you to know that Providenciales and the entire Turks and Caicos cluster of islands is considered low risk, safe for travel and ready to have you over. 

Vaccinated or not, testing is simple and our local government has gone out of its way to ensure safe, seamless protocole. As a destination, we’ve earned our level 1 standing, we’re doing everything to maintain it and you can confidently check all Covid updates right over here.

So if a warm, island getaway sounds like heaven, right about now, look for the tiny yellow islands on the map provided by the CDC. That’s us, and yellow is used for the safest destinations. 



Hope to see you soon !
