Nassau, The Bahamas - The Department of Environmental Health Services (DEHS) on Monday evening embarked on a disinfecting exercise as a preventive measure to limit the spread of COVID-19.  Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces such as roads and sidewalks followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19, according to Melony McKenzie, director of DEHS.  A DEHS team of 12 is on rotation, between the hours of 8:30pm to 1am until March 31, 2020; and thereafter if necessary -- targeting Bay Street, Potter’s Cay Dock, Montagu Beach and fishing ramp, Shirley Street and East Street, the Fish Fry at Arawak Cay, Saunders Beach, Nassau Street, and Poinciana Drive.  The director noted the disinfectant is not harmful to pedestrians or motorists.  Photos show disinfecting of downtown walkways on Tuesday evening, March 24, 2020.  (BIS Photos/Kemuel Stubbs)
