Minister of Health on possibility of travel bans


The Bahamas is on a short list of countries around the world who have tamed covid-19.

With this in mind, Health Minister, the Hon. Renward Wells was asked before the weekly cabinet meeting about the Bahamas implementing a travel ban on visitors from the United Kingdom as that country deals with a new variant strain of the virus.

“That is something that needs to be discussed further, obviously the cabinet of the Bahamas will look at it and make the very best decision based on the recommendations from Health.

“Health will make the recommendations as to what needs to take place in regards to which countries they believe pose the greatest risk to the Bahamian people.

“And then the government of the Bahamas listens to those recommendations, those put forward by Health, and then we are able to move forward” Minister Wells said.
