Wednesday, May 06,2020

The Bermuda Police Service has partnered with the Chamber of Commerce to work on ways to help patrons and owners at reopened businesses, abide by the new regulations in the area of physical distancing and wearing of protective face-masks when shopping.  Yesterday, the Parish Constables from the Community Policing Division of the Bermuda Police Service visited restaurant and retail locations island wide, to speak with business owners and patrons to advise on the new regulations and Government guidance. We are happy to report that for the most part, business were doing their part by placing markers 6 feet apart, displaying signage and had staff monitoring the lines to enforce physical distancing and the wearing of masks. During the weekend, there were a number of reports made to the Covid Portal https://portal.police.bm as well as on Social Media that some retail establishments and restaurants were not being compliant with the Covid-19 Regulations.

The Regulations state that any group larger than ten persons is prohibited and it is an offence to host any large group.Boating is of course now allowed however the regulations are clear that only members of members of the same household may get together on a boat up to a maximum of ten persons per vessel. No Raft Ups may take place and all boating activity must cease before 7pmWhilst public recreational spaces such as parks beaches and railway trails are open, appropriate physical distancing MUST be observed and large groups are prohibited. Public playgrounds and exercise equipment must not be used.Residents are urged to show extra care on the roads and the Roads Policing Unit will be out enforcing traffic laws including Speeding and Driving whilst Impaired.
