NASSAU, BAHAMAS – In a matter of hours, The Bahamas will no longer be under a state of emergency.

While many of the COVID-19 mitigation measures will remain in place in accordance with COVID health rules, Health and Wellness Minister Dr. Michael Darville insisted a curfew is no longer needed. However, he admits there are concerns about ending it.

The current state of emergency and accompanying Emergency Orders end on Saturday and will be immediately replaced by health rules that amended a section of the Health Services Act.

The new rules will maintain the mandate to wear masks in public, social distancing protocols, sanitizing requirements, entry requirements into the country, and other restrictive measures currently imposed by the Emergency Order.

However, the nightly curfew and lockdowns will come to an end.
