“We are getting more and more reports about people being non-compliant with public health guidance,” Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, adding that everyone needs to “be more responsible” as “we are still in a pandemic. ”
In releasing the test results last night [Nov 8], Minister Wilson said, “I must stress the need for everyone to be more responsible in their actions. We are getting more and more reports about people being non-compliant with public health guidance. People are symptomatic and doing activities anyway. They are going out in public, working, enjoying recreational activities, and children are going to school with symptoms.
“Our contact tracers are speaking to people who tested positive for the coronavirus, and they are not reporting close contacts and not cooperating with the contact tracing process. Subsequently, people that they were in close contact with are testing positive and displaying symptoms. This type of irresponsible behaviour will lead to more community spread.
“I realise that we all want to get back to normal, but we must remember that we are still in a pandemic. People are still testing positive. Physical distancing inside and outside must continue. Mask wearing must continue, and we all must pay close attention to any symptoms that can be Covid – runny nose, sneezing, coughs etc. If you need guidance, please visit gov.bm/coronavirus-guidance. We will not get back to normal without being personally responsible about our choices in this ongoing pandemic.”
