Some trust PM to make right call, others anxious for business to resume

May 19, 2020

Tavala Ferguson, a 36-year-old Eleuthera resident, yesterday questioned why normal commercial activity is not allowed to resume on her home island.

The prime minister ordered the closure of non-essential businesses as of March 20, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but has since allowed some islands to go back to normal commercial activity.

But Eleuthera is not one of those islands.

“It’s a bit unfair,” said Ferguson, who is a resident of Wemyss Bight.

“It’s definitely impacting the economy because a lot of jobs are being displaced. Because the island is not exempted to open, it has a lot of people at home.”

Peggy Underwood, 55, who lives in Spanish Wells, said the settlement has been adhering to the government’s curfew and weekend lockdown protocols “more than any island in the whole Bahamas”.

“They’re just not opening us up,” she told The Nassau Guardian.

“We want to know why. Why aren’t we opened up?”
