“I am pleased to announce today that after consultation with our stakeholders, including Public Health England, amendments to the Quarantine (COVID-19) (No. 3) Order 2020 will be made effective January 20th, 2022. These changes will further streamline our quarantine and testing guidelines,” said Minister of Health, Kim Wilson.

“We are trying to get back to some semblance of normalcy as we learn to live and cope with COVID-19. These changes to testing and quarantining are a welcomed transition for Bermuda and pivotal to our progress.

“I am also pleased that we are making progress with our COVID testing system and processing times. I want to assure the public that we will continue to improve the testing process and that plans are underway to ensure a smooth transition in the management of the MDL Lab.”

    Case numbers are becoming irrelevant as folks are home antigen testing and not reporting positive results. Just hope everyone is staying home the required amount of time. Hospitalizations and deaths are the only factual statistics. Also, The Health Ministry should be pumping out advertising that the symptoms of Omicron are similar to a cold and maybe mild or quite heavy. Folks don’t realize what appears to be a common cold is actually Omicron and they are very contagious.

    • Leonardo Dicaprio says:

      In reality the active cases could easily be 10 times what’s listed here. But many people are either not getting tested or have done a lateral flow and just missed a few days of work. Who can blame them. No one in their right mind will quarantine for 7-10 days.

  2. Rig says:

    The new measures are embarrassingly conservative, the PLP really have no clue.

    The disease is now one of the common cold and the unvaccinated. And who has time for the unvaccinated? Certainly not me. They had their chance.

    • Patrice Bean says:

      Who raised you!
      Ignorance is still bliss!

      “The disease is now one of the common cold …”

      Really? Where is that science? I have not seen it.

    • Jevon Ray says:

      Just keep setting up your appointmens for your booster. Vaccines stop the ability to catch or get infected by a virus. This “medical device” does neither.

    • jon says:

      who is spreading this virus? your still drinking the kool aid. Have you not wondered why they no longer report how many positives are vaccinated vs unvaccinated.

    • sandgrownan says:

      You hit the nail on the head.

      We have 30% of the population unvaccinated, that’s 18,000 people. The obesity rate 35%, and 75% of us are overweight. I would suggest that the venn diagram of obesity and non-vaccination is pretty close to being concentric circles, and if not the overlap will be significant.

      That’s what Wilson and the Government are afraid of. While Omicron is less severe for the rest of us, a prolonged “wave” is not going to be pretty.

      • aceboy says:

        But you crap on unvaccinated people…..so why are you suddenly so caring of them? Virtue signal much?

        • sandgrownan says:

          As I mentioned elsewhere, it’s a disgusting first world discussion – personal choice to be vaccinated. People are dying for lack of vaccines. Grow up. Get the jab.

          Personally, those that willingly don’t get vaccinated, they can take their chance as far as I’m concerned. I don’t care about them. But it’s not going to be pretty because we have an unhealthy society.

    2 weeks after New Year’s Eve, who could have predicted … oh, wait …

      Not to mention the 780 people that attended the indoor hotel jobs fair hosted by Diallo Rabain on Dec 21.
