Returning Bahamians will be evaluated upon arrival

The Ministry of Health will carry out a risk analysis on the Bahamians and residents who are set to return home tomorrow and wish to quarantine at home, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr. Delon Brennen said on Thursday.

He said returning Bahamians and residents will also have to sign an agreement to remain at home.

Additionally, Dr. Brennen said their residences will also have to be evaluated to determine suitability for self-quarantine.

The government is slated to bring home 190 Bahamians and residents who have been trapped abroad. All of them have tested negative for COVID-19, government officials have confirmed.

Government facilities will be provided for quarantine when that determination is made by the Ministry of Health.

The Guardian understands that the returning residents will be bused to a hotel for evaluation once they arrive in New Providence.
