While in The Bahamas
Have fun! But have fun responsibly! Most of the properties and hotels across the country have done and completed a certification from The Bahamas Clean & Pristine Certification Agency. This verifies that they are adhering to the government-approved health and safety guidelines for tourism properties. Feel free to ask at the property if they are “Clean and Pristine” certified.
While you’re enjoying The Bahamas, be safe. This means you should always wear a mask, practice physical distancing (3 ft – 6ft), wash your hands regularly and abide by any and all Covid-19 laws.
