Soldiers at Warwick Camp Questioning Quarantine Compensation
A couple of weeks ago, some soldiers within the Royal Bermuda Regiment were informed that someone at Warwick Camp had tested positive for the Coronavirus.
“It was two weeks ago when a soldier left the camp and came back [with] the virus,” a soldier who wishes to remain anonymous said.
“It was last week, however, was when we received government orders to quarantine.”
As a result of the government order, some soldiers were able to go home to quarantine, while others who were unable to do so had to stay in the army.
“There were ten people that stayed in the army and six that were in the bubble with the soldier who tested positive,” the soldier said. “I’m still [in the army], I can’t see my family or anything.”
With more and more soldiers at the camp receiving negative test results, as of today Saturday April 3th, only three remain at the camp; all of whom are close contacts of the soldier who had previously tested positive.
Despite having a test a few days ago which came back negative, the soldier still cannot return home, since they were a close contact of the soldier who was positive.
However, according to the soldier, some close contacts who happened to be full-time regiment staff got to quarantine at their homes. No one from the regiment’s higher ranks has checked on the three part-time staff members who are at present still in the army.
Essentially, those three were left on their own.
“The three full-time staff who are quarantining are also getting paid, whereas the ones who are essentially volunteers have not received anything yet,” they said. “No one has even made any phone calls to see how we are doing or anything like that.”
At the beginning of the quarantine period last week, the soldiers still at the camp were only given some leftover food.
“It’s a lucky thing that I asked my children to bring me a little bit of food to carry me over,” the soldier said.
“My question is are we going to receive compensation for being quarantine at css as no for the last two weeks?”
