Earlier today the Minister of National Security, Renee Ming, and Minister of Youth, Culture and Sports, Dr. Ernest Peets provided an update on the amended COVID-19 regulations and the return to sports guidelines.
Minister Ming stated, “As the Premier announced earlier this week, we have updated the COVID-19 Regulations. The changes took effect today. As a reminder for the public here’s what is now in place. After consultation with the Ministry of Health, the following changes have been agreed:
Group gatherings of persons in a private or public setting will increase from a maximum of 10 to a maximum of 25 people - this also includes outdoor funerals.
However there will be no Large Group exemptions approved at this time.”
Minister Dr. Peets said, “I want to open today by stating that this Government and my Ministry are deeply committed to sport in the country. Sport is considered one of the bedrocks of our community and we fully recognize and embrace the critical role that sport plays in the social, physical, mental and emotional well being in Bermuda.
Likewise, we understand that the necessary restrictions and limits imposed by COVID-19 have been a blow to the sporting community and we appreciate everyone’s patience and collaboration as Bermuda battles through this pandemic to keep our people safe and our economy open.”
The islandstats.com Sports Show tonight features host Earl Basden, along with co-host Jason Ford.
Several President of Sporting Bodies in Bermuda will join the discussion and they will be discussing the COVID-19 Sports Return to Play Guidelines.
