Bahamas: D’Aguilar: Quarantine hotels to give ‘some life’ to tourism

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The government’s decision to allow visitors to quarantine at hotels was intended to “give some life” to the tourism industry, according to Tourism Minister Dionisio D’Aguilar.

D’Aguilar acknowledged confusion over the government’s decision to reverse its policy on commercial flights from the United States last week, opting instead to impose a 14 day quarantine that would ‘no doubt’ impact foreign visitor arrivals.

Speaking ahead of a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, D’Aguilar said: “It was a certain element of confusion last week with sudden changes in our borders. A you know we closed the country to U.S. flights and then we opened the country to all flights, then we imposed a 14 day quarantine and then we had the lockdown.
