Bermuda’s current WHO country status has been upgraded to “Sporadic Cases”.
“Variant testing by MDL indicates that the delta variant of the coronavirus, which was first detected in India, has been identified in Bermuda,” said Minister of Health, Kim Wilson, JP, MP. “While we are still seeking confirmation of this preliminary finding, this variant was detected on arrival testing, with all isolation and contact tracing conducted as per standard protocols.”
“Bermuda, we must remain vigilant. This is a concerning variant, so please don’t think that because our restrictions are being relaxed, we can let our guard down.”
“If you are interested in getting vaccinated, we encourage you to register for an appointment by calling the Hotline at 444-2498 and select Option #2, or email email@example.com. We are re-starting fist doses and, in due course, will begin walk-ins again.”
“Each of us has a role to play in stopping the spread of the coronavirus. Follow Public Health guidelines, wear a mask, practice good hand hygiene, maintain physical distance and download the WeHealth Bermuda app. Do the research, talk with your doctor and make an informed decision about getting the COVID-19 vaccine. There is a wealth of information about the vaccines online at gov.bm.”
