REVOLVE Boat Event Videos Circulating Extremely Disappointing Says NSM Ming
“Very concerning and extremely disappointing," said the Minister of National Security, Renee Ming regarding the many videos, social media posts and messages circulating highlighting yesterday's REVOLVE boat event.
And while the Minister confirmed that a large group gathering exemption was granted to the organisers to host the event, there were specific guidelines in place that attendees had to follow.
More importantly there were clear law violations at the event, because under the current regulations, raft ups are not permitted at any time. As a note:
Restrictions on boating activity 17(4) - No person shall tie a boat to another boat (raft up) for recreational purposes.
The guidelines and exemption for the event can be found in the Official Gazette Notices via www.gov.bm.
This afternoon Minister Ming said, "I have seen the many videos and social media posts circulating today. This is concerning and disappointing because yesterday was only day three since we went into Phase 3 of the Public Health (COVID-19 Emergency Powers) (Phased Re-Opening) Regulations 2021.
"The regulations governing public events are clear and have been established for the protection of our community in the midst of this global pandemic. I have referred this matter to the Bermuda Police Service for a full and thorough investigation, and based on their findings, to take any necessary enforcement action.
"Lastly, the Government has worked tirelessly to mitigate and control the community spread of the COVID-19 virus. It is an everyday effort. We know that the vast majority of our community are compliant with the regulations in place, and are taking the right and necessary steps to protect themselves and their families. In that regard, the Ministry appreciates the patience, collaboration and support of the public and thanks them for their cooperation."
