Bermuda’s Premier David Burt has indicated that the government is considering further easing COVID-19 quarantine restrictions now that almost 65 per cent of the population is now vaccinated against Covid-19.
Saying that will be revisions to the approach to the policy on supervised quarantine, Mr Burt said he was hoping that by this week they will be in a position to “set out clearly” how they can “pivot on the basis of the success of our vaccination programme, and the effectiveness achieved in mitigating the risk against dangerous variants entering Bermuda’s population.”
Un-immunised travellers arriving in Bermuda must quarantine for 14 days in a government-approved facility while immunised residents, 2-years-old and older without a pre-arrival test, must quarantine for the first 4 days at home.
The government’s current quarantine regulations run until September.
Last week a court threw out a challenge to the current quarantine restrictions.
