'This is Embarrassing, America': U.S. Tourists No Longer Welcome in Bahamas; Canadians, Brits, and E

Mediaite

By Sarah Rumpf Jul 19th, 2020, 10:41 pm

On Sunday, the Bahamas announced that it will be closing all airports and seaports to American tourists, according to a report by the Miami Herald. The closure is set for Wednesday and was a response to the recent spike in coronavirus cases in the U.S., reversing a decision just three weeks ago to reopen their borders to international visitors.

The country’s national airline, Bahamasair has already ceased all America-bound flights. Outgoing commercial flights on other airlines will continue to allow travelers scheduled to depart after Wednesday.

Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis, who has been serving for several months in an additional role as his country’s acting health minister, issued a national address on Sunday to address the ongoing pandemic.

“Regrettably, the situation here at home has already deteriorated since we began the reopening of our domestic economy,” said Minnis. “It has deteriorated at an exponential rate since we reopened our international borders.”
