A spokesperson said, “To meet the testing demand, the Ministry of Health advised that starting tomorrow [January 6, 2022] all outbound travellers [visitors and residents] who require an antigen test 24-hours before their departure from Bermuda, will now be tested at a Washington Mall location.

“This new testing site, located at 16 Church Street, Hamilton, will be open from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm each day.

“Outbound visitors who indicate on their Travel Authorization [TA] that they do not need a PCR test, will have an antigen test booked as their outbound test at the Washington Mall site a day before their scheduled departure.

“Travellers who currently have an outbound testing appointment will receive an email notifying them of the new location for their antigen test.

“Outbound visitors who indicate on their TA that they require a PCR test, will continue to have their outbound test booked as a PCR test two (2) days before their departure date, at Perot Post office.

“Anyone who requires a 24-hour outbound antigen test will be able to book a travel antigen test online at www.gov.bm to attend the Washington Mall testing site.”

“Additionally, persons will continue to have access to booking their PCR test appointments for travel at the various community sites.

    Laughable at this rate. We waited for almost 60 hours for our day 4 test (said to be back to us within 24 hours). Well done Bermuda government.
    Send it to the pharmacies like Canada and the states do. You’ve made enough money.

    Don’t need a test for the UK now.

    “England’s travel restrictions against Covid-19 will be loosened tomorrow and the pre-departure test will be dropped for travellers.

    The British government’s website added that fully vaccinated travellers will also not have to quarantine in England on arrival.

    Vaccinated arrivals will have the choice of a fast lateral flow test for the coronavirus instead of a PCR test within two days of their arrival from 4am on Sunday.

    The automatic requirement to isolate will also be dropped.”

    Typical Government, it’s 9:45am on January 6th and the website is not updated to all bookings at Washington Mall.
