Now that we are officially into Phase 4 of the reopening of Bermuda’s economy Assistant Commissioner Martin Weeks issued a public reminder today that the “limit for public and private gatherings remains at 50 persons unless under a permit from the Ministry of National Security”.
While the ‘New Normal’ in this phase of the island’s reopening “has seen the relaxation of a number of previous restrictions, Mr Weekes urged “the public to not let their guard down and to continue to do their part to prevent the further spread of the virus”.
“The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) has been made aware of a number of neighbourhood events that have attracted crowds in excess of the 50-person limit and plans to hold similar large gatherings in neighbourhoods and parks,” said Mr Weekes.
“Please be reminded that the limit for public and private gatherings remains at 50 persons (unless under a permit from the Ministry of National Security) with strict guidelines including the wearing of face coverings and physical distancing.
“We refer those organising such gatherings to the guidance available at gov.bm.
“The BPS will be meeting with organisers of gatherings to ensure compliance with the regulations and will be monitoring crowds at recurring neighbourhood events and will take the necessary measures to hold organisers accountable. Please report any breaches to the BPS Covid portal.”
