The island’s recent surge in the number of COVID cases will be the subject of a Cabinet meeting this morning to “consider the current outbreak and to decide whether any further action is necessary”.

This after the Ministry of Health reported 30 new cases within the past three days – six on Friday, 18 on Thursday and seven new cases on Wednesday.

The past week also saw several advisories issued on potential exposure to the virus in six public schools, including Paget Primary, Purvis, Devonshire Preschool, Whitney Institute Middle School, Northlands Primary and Dellwood Middle School.

A Government spokesperson said Premier Burt’s Cabinet will “decide whether any further action is necessary to mitigate the current outbreak to ensure that Bermuda’s vaccination programme can continue unabated”.

“There will be a release on Saturday afternoon with further testing results and the announcement of any decisions made by the Cabinet.”
