Residents of the islands that are still free COVID-19 are happy to know they can once again move around once the curfew has been lifted on certain islands.

The Tribune spoke to residents of some of these islands, who once again had to consider the possibility of free movement 24 hours a day seven days a week.
“Sailor” from Spanish Wells said he couldn’t imagine why Spanish Wells was locked in the first place. “We don’t have a COVID here,” he said, asking to be called by this alias. “Spanish Wells is the cleanest place on earth. We’re just that big. Why would you want us to lock the door in the first place? I can also tell you, no one made me unlock the door.
“To answer your question, yes, I’m glad we were officially excluded from such a thing, but to be honest, I don’t understand why we were included. We are free people. Without Boundaries. Stop locking us up if there is no reason. To lock or lock for the Nassau people. They have COVIDs and something else. ”
Cecil Cartwright, a Long Island resident, also dislikes locking the door but is happy the restrictions are removed.
“On Long Island, we are very obedient to the law,” Mr. Cartwright said. “We did what we had to do even though we really don’t have any such COVID contagious cases here. I know we’re happy to know if we need to move around, we can do so now by law. So that’s fine and we appreciate that.
“Long Island is a huge place so if you’re stuck on the side, you have to be there until morning. I hope our congressman, Adrian Gibson, has something to do with that. He’s a good congressman by far. So I say thank you to him for helping us get out of the deadlock.
Inagua, known for salt and home to the national bird, the flamingo, was also excluded from the COVID-19 preventive door lock. This preventive measure is the recommendation of the Task Force COVID-19 to the Prime Minister, the Competent Authority.
“I mean we’re a bit scared, but there’s mostly nothing popular here,” Cynthia Nixon said. “I am very happy that the prime minister did this for us. There’s no reason for us to get locked out, but I understand he’s trying to keep us all safe from this COVID. I appreciate him for doing that.
“Everyone is holding the prime minister hard, but I think he’s doing his job well with his medical team. He wasn’t just looking for Nassau, but all of us…. All Bahamas citizens. He needs encouragement. God wouldn’t put on him more than he could bear. This COVID disease will be over soon ”.
The country is on a second close with only banks, pharmacies and grocery stores open three days a week. The prime minister, currently on quarantine, is scheduled to speak before the nation at 8 o’clock tonight.
