“Each of us has a role to play in stopping the spread of the coronavirus. Follow Public Health guidelines, wear a mask, practice good hand hygiene, maintain physical distance and download the WeHealthBermuda app. Do the research, talk with your doctor and make an informed decision about getting the Covid-19 vaccine.”

    The test results are meaningless now because of the multiple testing done on the same person. There must be some financial benefit somewhere. Example – why do vaccinated residents returning from abroad need a pre arrival test, arrival test and tests on days 4, 8 and 14? 4 on island. Why not just arrival and day 4? A positive on day 8 or 14 is likely a false positive and not infectious. Another nonsensical Government control.

    Always so many negative comments. Just do it and just maybe it’s to protect you and those you choose to be around. So tired of hearing “The Government is Trying to Control Us” get over it. If it wasn’t for the Government putting in restrictions etc. we wouldn’t be showing 0 negative results the last three or four days. We were put in a dire situation because the recklessness of people NOT doing what they were asked to do and consequently we had a spread that got out of control. This shows that there are certain people in our community that are so selfish they have no regard for anyone but themselves. So get tested it really isn’t that hard.
