Morritt’s retains all staff during COVID-19 closure

Morritt’s Resort, a premier vacation club destination in the Cayman Islands for over 30 years, is pleased to announce that it has retained all staff despite the temporary closure of its property necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Along with the rest of the Cayman Islands hospitality and tourism industry, Morritt’s had to pause operations as soon as local COVID-19 restrictions came into place in March that closed the country’s borders to visitors and had residents sheltering in place.

“Our guests repeatedly tell us that some of the things they love so much about our resort, and what keeps them coming back, are the familiar faces and sense of community that we’ve developed,” said Bill Powers, Morritt’s General Manager.

“Many of our staff have been with us for decades and really are like family, so it was our top priority to ensure that their needs were met during this time.”

Morritt’s opted to keep each member of staff employed at full pay for the first seven weeks of the shut-down and at 75% pay thereafter.

Plans are in place for Morritt’s to offer a staycation package for residents on 26 June 2020, and staff will return to full pay at that time. Further details are available at https://morritts.com/staycation.
