NASSAU, Bahamas, 22 December 2021 / PRNewswire / – The Bahamas Department of Tourism, Investment and Aviation Takes Note of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Travel Advisory Update Reducing Its Travel Recommendation for the Bahamas from a level 3 destination to a level 2 destination.

The CDC assesses a lower risk due to a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases as well as a lower case trajectory. Immunization coverage rates and performance also play a role in determining CDC advisory levels. This recent change is an indication that our diligence succeeds in minimizing the spread and we are very proud of that.

While updated travel protocols combined with restrictions on the island remain our first line of defense, we cannot let our guard down, especially during the holiday season and New Years. We continue to evolve as we go. as the virus evolves and vigilance will be imperative as precautions will continue to remain in place to ensure that safety remains of the utmost importance to residents and visitors.

“We view this lowered opinion favorably because it is proof that our protocols and protective measures to fight against COVID-19 in the Bahamas are functioning, ”said Deputy Prime Minister the Honorable I. Chester cooper, Bahamas Minister of Tourism, Investments and Aviation. “However, now is not the time to abandon our strict protocols that work to ensure the safety of visitors and the people of the Bahamas. I ask all who enjoy the beauty of our islands to remember that this pandemic is not happening. ‘is not over and that it is our collective responsibility to do our part to help stop the spread. ”

Due to the fluidity of COVID-19, the government of La Bahamas will continue to monitor islands individually and adopt protective measures to address specific cases or peaks accordingly. For an overview of La Bahamas’ travel and entry protocols, please visit Bahamas.com/travelupdates.
