Updated: Oct 18, 2020

The Nassau Guardian, October 8th, 2020 reported by Paige McCartney: The 24-hour curfew on weekends, and other restrictions announced by Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis yesterday, may lead to more harm than good, Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers’ Confederation (BCCEC) Chairperson Khrystle Rutherford-Ferguson said, noting that the measures will lead to overcrowding at businesses and the further spread of COVID-19 while impacting revenues during a critical time.

Minnis announced a number of new restrictions for New Providence and Abaco in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 ahead of the further opening of the tourism industry.
