“Covid-19 cases are down in Bermuda, thanks in part to our aggressive testing and vaccine programme. As well, the United States Centres for Disease Control today upgraded Bermuda’s Covid-19 risk rating,” said Minister of Health, Kim Wilson.

“Bermuda is now classed as Level 2, moderate, up from Level 4, very high in a travel advisory on the organisation’s website. However, we must  continue to be vigilant to avoid any additional outbreaks.”

“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 WeHealthBermuda app. Do the research, talk with your doctor and make an informed decision about getting the Covid-19 vaccine.”
