Updates: Premier Announces New Regulations

December 11, 2020 | 6 Comments

[Updating] Premier David Burt will be delivering what he said was a “special statement in the House of Assembly” at approximately 3pm today [Dec 11] to “update the Island on Bermuda’s current Covid outbreak.”

This is one of three statements/press conferences today, as one was already held at 12.30pm to launch the WeHealth Bermuda app, and the Government also sent out an advisory via social media that they will hold a press conference at 5.45pm today.

This comes amidst increasing cases of Covid-19, with over 100 new confirmed cases so far this month and a record high 126 active, and the resulting effects, including but not limited to, public schools moving to remote learning, indoor bars/clubs being told to close, gatherings limited to 20 people, at least four schools having their students/staff told to quarantine, and bus service being suspended due to a staff member testing positive.

Bernews will rebroadcast the audio of the Premier’s statement in Parliament, and you can also listen via radio, and on Bernews Facebook and Twitter feeds.

      So you’re privy to the ‘secret’ information , eh ? Do tell us more , please .
      Have you given any thought to all of the mystery cases where no-one admits to knowing where they might have picked it up.
      Some are theorizing that a lot of hanky panky is involved with people who want to keep their trysts secret and that could well be happening after midnight .. lol

    So what happens to those students that are in Canada with regards to testing at Costco….do you realize that you have to be a member to get into Costco? Will the Bermuda travel authorization form fee change to? and if so from $75 to what fee ?

    • Computer Guy says:

      Exactly…….and the fact that I’ll have to pay $400USD on top of the cost of my plane ticket to come home is some BS (which is the whole point…a deterrent). But I still think it’s stupid.
