Police: Visiting Is Prohibited At Quarantine Facility

April 7, 2020 | 5 Comments

“The visiting of people who are being housed at an approved Government facility for 14 day mandatory quarantine is strictly prohibited.”

That was the message on a graphic tweeted by the police, who said: “The Bermuda Police Service is aware of social media messages circulating, regarding individuals who are being quarantined at Government approved facilities encouraging friends to come and visit. This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated!”

Premier David Burt previously announced that once travelers arrive in Bermuda they will be mandated to enter a Government quarantine facility for 14 days.

The Quarantine [Incoming Traveller] Order 2020 [PDF], which is dated April 2nd, states that persons entering Bermuda from the April 3rd “shall comply with this Order” until it is revoked by the Minister of Health.

It states, “Each person entering Bermuda by commercial aircraft,private jet or ship shall, upon being landed in Bermuda, be placed in quarantine for a period not exceeding 14 days, at a place approved by the Quarantine Authority for the purpose.”

It also notes that “any person who contravenes the provisions of this Order commits an offence under section 11 of the Quarantine Act 2017.”

    The mere fact that this article even had to be posted says it all!

    Everyone who is working against the government and police on this ought to catch a dose of the virus. Maybe that will finally keep your spoiled tails inside.

      Obviously listening to the government ain’t helping so they ought to learn the hard way and experience first hand what it’s like to suffer with it just as the other 1 million + people globally have had to do. God forbid they infect an elder in their family. They’ll be screaming bloody murder

  2. people messaging with total disregard should be fined too says:

    It would be good to gather proof of these texters/messagers and see about fining them for public mischief. The same way you could prosecute someone for yelling “fire” in a crowded store, or inciting a group of people to riot. Surely there are laws in Bermuda against such things? prosecute the people in quarantine acting like idiots, and the visitors that try to get there…
    Why can’t they be grateful that Govt has helped them to this point?
    Take away their phones….

    Most countries aren’t allowing residents to come in now as COVID19 was LONG deemed as serious. Now these spoiled Bermudians are in luxurious accommodation complaining about the food because it doesn’t match up to their expectation. It’s sad. A month ago Bermudians abroad where told to return and airlines didn’t even raise the fee. All they had to do was move and they’d be home.

    So since they stayed in this hot zones for such a long time who’s to say they don’t have the virus? They need to cool out & stop acting entitled. You could’ve long been home if you listened like all the other students who are at home.

  4. Oh,I see now says:

    To some sectors of the public this appears to be one big get out of work picnic party.For the rest of us from that same sector it is embarrassing to witness such blatant irresponsible behavior.

    and you wonder why…..ffs
