The Ministry of Tourism and Aviation says hotels and resorts should not allow international guests nor Bahamian residents on property without negative COVID-19 test results.
The ministry says it is aware of special offers and packages being offered by hotels for Bahamian residents during weekend lockdown periods.
The Ministry says this should not be as weekend lockdowns are designed to curb further spread of the virus.
“All residents with the exception of essential workers are required to remain in their place of residence for the duration of the lockdown period unless for the purpose of seeking emergency medical care or securing groceries, gas, pharmaceuticals or water,” the statement says.
