Bahamas: “Positive Progress Towards Tourism Recovery” 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - March 15, 2022

The Bahamas is making “positive progress toward tourism recovery,” according to Chester Cooper, Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism.

The country recently saw its Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel recommendation improved, lowering the country’s advisory from a level four to a level three.

“The lowering of the CDC advisory is encouraging,” said Cooper whose portfolio includes Tourism, Investments and Aviation. “Cases of the virus in The Bahamas have been
reduced significantly, which has also led to the relaxation of after-arrival testing requirements and other restrictions. With the participation of all Bahamians in following health and safety precautions, we’re confident this positive trajectory towards a new normal will continue.”

The CDC’s Travel Health Notice is a four-level system that categorizes international destinations with thresholds based on local case numbers.

“The Government of The Bahamas has enacted several measures to guard against community
transmission of the virus, including widespread free testing and vaccine availability, public education efforts and the distribution of free medical-grade masks for all citizens and residents of The Bahamas,” The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism said in a statement.
