Bermuda – Canada World Cup Qualifier Face Challenges

Bermuda’s opening World Cup Qualifier against Canada in Canada on March 25th just got thrown into a loop following Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a new agreement with airlines to suspend travel to the Caribbean and Mexico due to Covid-19.

The direct Bermuda to Canada flight has been suspended until at least April was causing the Bermuda Football Association some headache, but PM Trudeau indicated that all visitors must take a mandatory Covid PCR test when they arrive at the airport - in addition to the pre-boarding test that is already required - and stay at government-approved hotels at their own cost for up to three days as they await the results.

The prime minister said it could cost travelers more than $1,560 for the hotel stay.

Those who test negative can complete the remainder of their two-week quarantine period at home, but "those with positive tests will be immediately required to quarantine in designated government facilities to make sure they're not carrying variants of potential concern".
