The Ministry of Health is requesting that anyone contacted as close contact with a positive COVID-19 case to cooperate and share all requested information fully. Any information provided is confidential.
“If you are contacted by one of our contact tracers, please be truthful with information as it pertains to your close contacts. We need honest information to trace and contain any potential spread. Your cooperation may well save a life,” said Minister of Health, Kim Wilson, JP, MP.
“Once again, I will remind everyone that contact tracing is critical to ensuring that everyone exposed to the coronavirus gets tested and, if necessary, quarantined. Please cooperate with our contact tracing team. This team is trying to prevent the spread of the virus. Also, knowing your COVID-19 status is important even if we are not dealing with an outbreak. Get tested! And get tested regularly.”
“Avoiding the spread of this virus is a collective effort. We have to all be responsible and do our part. Wear a mask when you are interacting with people, especially indoors. Wear a mask when you are out in public. Wearing a mask can help to contain the spread of the coronavirus. Please also continue to practice physical distancing, good hand hygiene and avoid the “three Cs” of closed spaces, crowded places and close-contact settings.”
The Ministry of Health announced earlier that they had many COVID-19 vaccine doses available that must be used today. The public (those without scheduled appointments) was invited to take advantage of the opportunity to get vaccinated. Priority was given to those 65 years old and over.
“I would like to thank the vaccine teams at Bermuda College and Bermuda Hospitals Board,” said Minister Wilson. “They worked diligently to successfully accommodate the numerous walk-ins alongside the scheduled appointments.”
