The government said this was due to the “due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic in Bermuda and its impact on persons unable to work.”
Bermuda’s Minister of Labour, Jason Hayward, said: “During this period when restrictions have been re-implemented to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we recognize that the employment situation for many has worsened. Accordingly, it is important to continue with strong measures to encourage the hiring of Bermudians in the workforce.”
