Dr. Minnis said more must be done to save lives, and in a race against time, all airports and seaports will be closed to international flights and boats.
“For the purposes of preventing, controlling and suppressing the spread of COVID-19, with immediate effect except without prior written permission of the Competent Authority, all airports including private airports and fixed-base operations (FBOs) shall be closed to incoming international flights carrying any visitor.
“All sea ports shall be closed to regional and international seafaring and private boating, and no visitor shall be permitted to enter and disembark for any reason including transmitting through The
Bahamas,” he said.
Dr. Minnis added that Arawak Cay, Potters Cay Dock and all beaches will be closed to the public.
