NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Bahamians are reacting to the Deputy Prime Minister, and weighing in on possible changes to the mask mandate.

Berthony McDermott has that.



As Cabinet prepares to discuss pulling back COVID-19 restrictions, some residents believe protocols should remain in place.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday morning, Deputy Prime Minister Chester Cooper said the mask mandate will also be discussed.

This comes a few weeks after the mask mandate was removed for local hotels and resorts and a day after a U.S. federal judge ruled that the Biden administration’s mask mandate for travelers on planes and other public transportation be lifted.

Ellis Johnson says it’s time to relax protocols except for the mask mandate.

The Bahamas has seen a drastic decrease in COVID-19 cases in recent months.

However, Free National Movement Chairman and Former Health Minister Dr. Duane Sands feels the decisions made by the Davis administration aren’t scientifically based.
