Bermuda Police Reminder On Curfew & More

April 27, 2021

The police have reminded people that the curfew is currently from 8pm until 6am, the recreational boating curfew is currently 7pm every day and mixing of households is still prohibited.

A police spokesperson said, “While the vast majority of residents continue to be compliant with current Covid-19 restrictions, the Bermuda Police Service [BPS], the Bermuda Reserve Police [BRP] and Bermuda Coast Guard are still encountering individuals violating the regulations regarding not mixing households and curfew.

“As a reminder, an overnight curfew is currently in effect from 8pm until 6am every day, while the recreational boating curfew is currently 7pm every day. Mixing of households is still prohibited at this time.”

Assistant Commissioner of Police Martin Weekes reiterated: “Thank you to all those complying with the current restrictions. Our primary goal is to help keep residents safe during this pandemic. However, anyone found violating the rules should expect to appear in court.

“Therefore, I urge everyone to do their part and abide by the regulations. Please ensure you take note of all Government guidance available to ensure that you do not fall outside of these regulations and give yourselves plenty of time to get home before curfew.”

“It should be noted that Section 18 [1] of the Public Health [Covid-19 Emergency Powers] [Stay at Home] Regulations 2021 states: “A person who fails to comply with any of these Regulations … commits an offence and is liable in accordance with section 171 of the Public Health Act 1949, to the following –

  • [a] a fine of $6,000, in respect of a first offence;
  • [b] for a second or subsequent offence, a fine of $10,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months, or both such fine and imprisonment;
  • [c] in addition, in the case of a continuing offence, a fine of $1,000 in respect of each day during which the offence is continued.”

“For specific information on the current restrictions in place, please visit here or call 444-2498. Requests for curfew exemptions can be made online here. As always, the latest information and guidance from the Government of Bermuda regarding Covid-19 can be found here.”

    So as an employer in the construction field I am allowed to work but with a child out of daycare I cant really work now can I. I need to be at home with her while my wife also works from home on her laptop (in our bedroom I may add). Thats right, we dont have an office in our house, crazy I know… I have one family member on island who is out of work as they are in hospitality so you’re telling me he cant come over to watch my daughter while I work (because I am allowed to)? This makes me so angry. Especially when we have all been vaccinated and have complied with the BS regulations thus far. I wont receive the financial benefit (because technically I can work) but I see people walking in groups at the park, dock workers gathering at their bikes before and after work, I see people dropping their kids of at nannas house and I can even interact with my own workers who I certainly dont live with. The one person that can help me out technically cant because of no mixing households but you can jam 20 people into a small grocery store? I have applied for a special exemption but have not heard back from anyone. This is a blanket solution and the premier who I voted for has completely gone rouge. This makes NO sense.
