Members of the Covid 19 task force for Grand Bahama consisting of representatives of the Grand Bahama Health Services, The Royal Bahamas Police Force, the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, and the Department of Immigration, met at the Office of the Prime Minister on Saturday 11th July at 10am with Minister of State for Grand Bahama Senator the Hon. Kwasi Thompson and Permanent Secretary Harcourt Brown. 

Grand Bahama has recently experienced an increase in the number of Covid 19 confirmed cases which include five Bahamians and one immigrant. 

All confirmed cases are being placed in isolation quarantine in a secured facility monitored by the Health Professionals as well as Police, Immigration and Defence force personnel. 

Contact  tracing  in  respect  to  all  quarantined  persons  has  already  begun  and  all  relevant  agencies are working together to limit any possible exposure to the Bahamian Public. 

Immigration  Officials  are  working  with  the  Ministry  of  Foreign  Affairs  to  ensure  the  safe  and  prompt  repatriation  of  Illegal  Immigrants  recently  held  in  custody  and  a  local  Sanitization Company has been hired to carry out the deep cleaning of all agencies situated in the C.A Smith Building. 

We  want  to  ensure  the  Public  that  every  precaution  has  been  already  taken  to  secure  the  Health and Safety of our front-­‐Line workers, Public Officers and staff as well as the Bahamian Public at large. 

We remind all Grand Bahamians to continue to be vigilant and to wear your masks whenever out in public. Also wash hands frequently and observe all Social Distancing Protocols.
