Dunkley Cautious about 2021 Tourist Season
Due to the monumental effects of the Coronavirus on Bermuda and the entire world, former Premier and Shadow Minister of Health Michael Dunkley, JP, MP, does not see a very bright tourism season for Bermuda this year.
“Once the virus releases its grip on some parts of the world, it still takes some time for people to feel comfortable travelling and for all of the travel routes to be put in place. We are not quite there yet,” Mr. Dunkley said.
According to him, Bermuda needs to do all that it can to have a tourist season this year and stay as safe as possible at the same time. This will be quite difficult, but not impossible.
“If we all understand the restrictions and make sure that we follow those restrictions, we can come out of this much quicker than the rest of the world, because we are a small country, we’re very resilient and we have a good reputation for working together,” he said.
It is also important to him that Bermuda does come out of this quicker than the rest of the world, because the island does rely so much on dollars coming in.
