Beautiful Beaches of the Bahamas Closed to United States Citizens to Contain Coronavirus

The Bahamas has temporarily banned all United States Citizens from vacationing at the island nation. The ban, depending on how long it is enforced, could impact cruises from New York and New Jersey. These cruises frequently called at Nassau, Freeport and private islands in the Bahamas  on 7 day winter cruises.

Here is the details of the current ban.

"Our current situation demands decisive action if we are to avoid being overrun and being defeated by this virus," Minnis said in his address, noting that the Bahamas has confirmed 15 new cases for a total of 153 cases. 49 of the cases had been identified since the Bahamas reopened its borders on July 1. 
Sea vessels carrying commercial passengers will also not be permitted to enter. However, private international flights, charters and yachts from all countries will be allowed. 
National airline Bahamasair will end flights to the US immediately and a number of beaches and parks have been closed until further notice.
The Bahamas' move to ban most international travelers, especially Americans, is significant as 50% of the nation's gross domestic product (GDP) of $5.7 billion comes from tourism alone.
