One hundred ninety Bahamians back home from Florida
The first repatriation phase of Bahamian nationals and residents from Florida to New Providence and Grand Bahama, occurred on Friday morning.
The returning nationals and residents, upon arrival, were met at the airport by officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including Director General of Foreign Affairs Sharon Brennen Haylock, and Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr. Delon Brennen.
The returnees were transported to a government-operated quarantine facility for evaluation, and will remain there until health officials determine if it is safe to leave.
On Thursday at the COVID-19 press conference, Dr. Brennen said health officials will begin a risk analysis of those who request home isolation.
He said the health team will assess and determine if the home is suitable for isolation then the patient will sign an agreement to remain in their homes.
