The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) confirmed a total of 11 individuals were found to be in breach of the current curfew regulations on Friday night (Feb 5).
A spokesman said today: “Despite an advisory put out by government that the current curfew regulations will remain in place for at least the next two weeks, a total of eleven individuals were last night found to be in breach of those regulations.
“The Bermuda Police Service (BPS), continued to carry out curfew checks at different locations across the island as part of efforts announced by Government to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
“Please be aware, the curfew is in place from 12am to 5am.
“Individuals out and about during these hours, without an official exemption as outlined in the curfew regulations could find themselves summonsed to appear before the courts,” he added.
“If you are not sure as to who is exempted or how to apply for an exemption letter, please visit https://forms.gov.bm/covid-19/curfew.
“The BPS wishes to remind that we all have a part to play in stopping the spread of the novel Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) and abiding by the curfew regulations, is key to helping achieve that objective.”
Word of the 11 curfew breaches first surfaced on the local social media circuit, when Police Commissioner Stephen Corbishley published it on his Facebook page asking: “Why do some ignore the regulations”.
“Breach = Court & Fine #Prevent COVID 19,” he wrote, which by 8pm tonight generated 13 comments.
