In an effort to keep up with other Caribbean islands reopening this summer, the Dominican Republic has confirmed that its tourism industry will resume on July 1. This means the return of international flights, and restaurant and hotel reopenings.
According to Dominican Today, the Dominican Republic’s reopening plan consists of four phases. The first, which began on May 20, allowed up to 50 percent of staff to return to work for small companies. Barbershops and medical offices were also allowed to open. In phase two, which began June 3, more staff were allowed to return to work at larger companies, and shopping centers, private passenger transport, and Sunday religious services resumed.
