As the people of God we continue our journey amid the challenges of life. Hurricane Dorian struck last year and Covid-19, Coronavirus is our mammoth challenge this year. In every age, God has helped the Church through many a crisis. The words of the Psalmist are true: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble…” (Ps. 46:1) These situations of life, call us to employ an age old method available for solving the problems of life. God has created the world and everything in it. God has revealed Himself to us in many ways and continues to do so. God has allowed human beings to excel in every area of skill. We must take the best advice of these disciplines which God created and inspired, and through which God works regularly in our lives. Conclusions coming from persons in science and public health in The Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos Islands, and in other countries around the world, indicate that the virus spreads more in gatherings of people.
The Securities Commission of The Bahamas (the Commission) is a statutory body responsible for the regulation of the securities and capital markets as well as financial and corporate service providers. The Commission issues this notice to inform all stakeholders and the general public about operational changes it has implemented to mitigate the spread and impact of COVID-19 in our community, and to protect the health of our staff, registrants and licensees, and visitors to our premises.
Prime Minister the Most Hon. Dr. Hubert Minnis appealed to Bahamians and residents to stop panic buying food and hoarding supplies in reaction to news of the COVID-19 virus. “There is no need for it,” the Prime Minister said on Tuesday 17 March following a meeting with local wholesalers and suppliers at the Office of the Prime Minister. “I want to assure the population that we have at least a one to three months’ supply of food on the island and shipping continues as normal.”
Effective immediately, the following measures are being implemented following the first confirme dcase of COVID-19in the Bahamas. These immediate changes are intended to minimize person-to-person contact and increase the safety of patients, staff, and public.
