The Bahamas has been one of the best performing destinations in the Caribbean this year. 

That’s in large part thanks to the continued success of the country’s heath and travel protocols, which got a nod of approval from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this week when the agency reduced its travel advisory for The Bahamas from Level 3 to Level 2. 

The reduction means a lower risk for travelers due both to decreased COVID-19 case counts and a lower case trajectory. 

That’s along with vaccine coverage rates and performance. 

“This recent change is an indication that our diligence is proving successful in minimizing the spread and for that we are very proud,” the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation said in a statement. 

“We view this lowered advisory favourably as it is proof that our protocols and protective measures to combat COVID-19 in The Bahamas are working,” said Deputy Prime Minister  Chester Cooper, Bahamas Minister of Tourism, Investments & Aviation. “However, this is not the time to let up on our stringent protocols which are working to keep both visitors and the Bahamian people safe. I ask that all those enjoying the beauty of our islands remember this pandemic is not over and that it is our collective responsibility to do our part to help stop the spread.”  

In a statement, the country said it would “continue to monitor islands individually and enact protective measures to address specific cases or spikes accordingly.”
