The Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, “As everyone is aware, Bermuda is receiving its first commercial flight tomorrow. The Government has taken great measures to protect the country, however, it will be more important than ever to wear our masks at all times, keep physically distant from others and wash our hands frequently. This is the time to practice these measures scrupulously.”

This applies equally to visitors and residents.

    42 imported and 85 local transmission which means every infected person coming in will give 2 people covid19…. but that was before sheltering in place, so obviously that worked.

    We stopped it, but today we opened up Bermuda to the americans on the east coast and anyone on a private jet.

    We just went from being a country that would be covid19 free to a wholeeeeeeee different scenario in 2 weeks.
