BERMUDA — After reopening to tourists on July 1, the island of Bermuda has unveiled an updated list of travel policies and procedures as part of its ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Most notably, in addition to acquiring a negative COVID-19 test result prior to departure, all visitors must now also take a COVID-19 test on days 4, 8 and 14 of their visit.
“Our island home has always been a precious resource set apart by its geographic location and way of life,” said the Bermuda Tourism Authority. “Over the past few months we’ve been dedicated to protecting our community and pristine destination for our residents and guests to enjoy for years to come.”
The following Bermuda Government protocols are applicable to all visitors:
If a traveller becomes COVID-19 positive in destination, is a close contact of a positive person or is symptomatic, they will be quarantined or isolated as appropriate at their accommodation for up to 14 days. Anyone who becomes COVID-19 positive, or whom health authorities believe could be positive, will be fitted with an Aqua electronic bracelet to assist with isolation/quarantine.
Hotels that have already reopened in Bermuda include Azura Bermuda; Coral Beach Club, Rosewood Bermuda, Royal Palms Hotel and The Loren Hotel.
Hotels reopening later this month and in the coming months include Coco Reef Resort (July 24), The Reefs Resort & Club (Aug. 7); Hamilton Princess & Beach Club (Aug. 24); Fairmont Southampton (Sept. 1); and Elbow Beach Resort (Jan. 1, 2021).
