NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Sandals Emerald Bay, Exuma, has decided to push back its reopening date to February 1, 2021, amidst the continued global coronavirus pandemic.
Exumas and Ragged Island MP Chester Cooper announced the decision in a Facebook post today.
Cooper called the decision disappointing and disheartening.
“These crushing blows are now the nature of the times, I suppose,” Cooper said.
“But that makes it no easier for the people of Exuma.
“Sandals is the largest private-sector employer on the island and a good corporate citizen.
“This will be a crippling blow for the local economy and the hundreds of families who rely on their employees to put bread on the table.”
