He said on July 13th, attractions and excursions and tours will reopen, and on July 27th, straw vendors and jet ski operators may commence operations.
Instead on Wednesday, hotels and vacation rentals which were closed, will reopen.
Taxi services will resume operations based on guidelines in the Ministry of Tourism and Aviation Bahamas Tourism Readiness and Recovery Plan, and private and public bus services may resume, with 50 percent occupancy based on guidelines in Readiness and Recovery Plan.
