What LPIA is Doing:
As health and safety is our top priority, LPIA is supporting public health practices with additional measures to enable our passengers, tenants and employees to be vigilant about their health, including increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting high traffic areas throughout the terminal. We have installed additional hand sanitizing stations throughout the airport. Bahamas Immigration has discontinued self-service kiosks and are now screening individual passengers to determine their specific travel history prior to arriving at LPIA.

What You Can Do:
To reduce the spread of coronavirus, The Bahamas Ministry of Health recommends following the same precautionary measures as you would to help prevent the spread of cold or flu:
- Wash your hands often with soap under warm running water for at least 20 seconds.
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer only if soap and water are not available.
- When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with your arm to reduce the spread of germs.
- If you use a tissue, dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands afterwards.
- Avoid touching your face, eyes and mouth with unwashed hands to avoid germ transfer.
