At the time, Regis said workers were tested, but health officials were awaiting receipt of the tests to determine its results and its validity.
Turnquest said all of the tests were taken within the required ten-day period.
Turnquest said, “They had the required documentation. The plane arrived at 5am this morning (Thursday) on our 737-700 plane which is the only plane we have that can do a four and a half flight and we had two ATR planes transport them to Abaco after they arrived in the country. We were pleased with the commercial transaction.”
