Grand Bahama’s Lockdown Lifted

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - September 8, 2020

The island of Grand Bahama’s lockdown has been lifted, the island’s tourism board confirmed. 

The changes mean essential businesses like food stores, pharmacies and gas stations are now open every day, while restaurants are now able to provide outdoor dining, takeout, delivery and drive-through (excepting Smiths Point Fish, Williams Town and West End Move). 

“We couldn’t be more excited to share that lockdown has officially been lifted on our beloved island,” the Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board said in a statement. “This does not mean that everything is back to normal and that our doors are fully open.  But it is a momentous step in the right direction.”

International and domestic flights and sea vessels are now allowed in and out of the island. 

All visitors must undergo a 14-day quarantine, although that includes hotels, vacation rentals and other accommodations.
