Public Health (Covid-19 Emergency Powers) Regulations 2020

Wearing of masks is required at all times save for the consumption of food and drink. [This will not apply to when players and officials are participating in a match]

Adherence to all applicable COVID 19 Health Guidelines as published by the Ministry of Health.

The Ministry of National Security reserves the right to withdraw the permission to have more than seventy-five persons assembled at the event without notice or cost to the Bermuda Government subject to the status of COVID 19 in the local community.

The Bermuda Police Service / Ministry of National Security Official have right to attend and observe compliance of the conditions as prescribed above.
