According to Dominican Today, the third phase is scheduled to take effect on June 17.

“They are in the third phase, the period for the opening of hotels, which even allows the opening of the beaches,” Public Health Minister Rafael Sanchez Cardenas said Thursday.

*Important Note: The reopening of tourism activities is dependent on approval of the Dominican Republic federal government. Be sure to check with local and state authorities before traveling. 

The initial phase of de-escalation began on Wednesday with the second phase scheduled to take effect on June 3, allowing officials at least 14 days to measure the effect of easing restrictions.

Social distancing and face-covering requirements remain in effect to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Earlier this month, Delta Air Lines announced plans to resume several major routes between the U.S. and Caribbean, including the Dominican Republic, in June.
