Bahamas: VACCINATE OR TEST WEEKLY: PM urges Grand Bahama businesses to encourage employee vaccinations

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis yesterday urged business owners on Grand Bahama to encourage their employees to get vaccinated, noting that their economic progress could be jeopardized.

Minnis was speaking at the official signing ceremony of the Grand Bahama International Airport.

He said: “I want to send a message to the business sector. Kindly encourage all of your employees to become vaccinated. If your employees are vaccinated and one individual enters your premises who has evidence of COVID you need not close your premises.

“However  if your employees are not vaccinated and an individual enters your premises who has evidence of COVID then your business is subsequently closed  temporarily thus jeopardizing your economic progress.”

Minnis urged those employers whose employees are not vaccinated to have them take a COVID PCR test weekly. The Bahamas has seen a significant spike in COVID- 19 cases in recent months however Government has not imposed any further restrictions.”
