Bermuda has now entered Phase four of the island’s reopening plan “New Normal” which has seen the relaxation a number of previous restrictions.
The Deputy Commissioner Martin Weekes however urges the public to not let their guard down and to continue doing their part to prevent the further spread of the virus.

Weekes said, "Please be reminded that the limit for public and private gatherings remains at 50 persons (unless under a permit from the Ministry of National Security) with strict guidelines including the wearing of face coverings and physical distancing."

The DCOP added: "The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) has been made aware of a number of neighbourhood events that have attracted crowds in excess of the 50-person limit and plans to hold similar large gatherings in neighbourhoods and parks. We refer those organising such gatherings to the guidance available at gov.bm."

Mr. Weekes further stated: "The BPS will be meeting with organisers of gatherings to ensure compliance with the regulations and will be monitoring crowds at recurring neighbourhood events and will take the necessary measures to hold organisers accountable."
