During the Weekly Government, COVID-19 Press Conference Premier David Burt reflected on Sports.
Premier Burt said, “The Government is also working on getting Bermudians safely back into sports and to sporting events.
Last month the Minister of Youth, Culture & Sport, Dr. Ernest Peets, announced a 4 stage program to help Bermuda safely return to competitive sport.
We are currently in Stage 3, and safely progressing toward being able to enjoy playing, and watching competitive local sports again.
The Government has rolled out a testing plan for all contact sports, and this will ensure that there are no latent cases of the virus that may occur in the community that can turn into an outbreak as we move back to competitive sport.
Thanks to National Sports Governing Bodies and the Department of Youth and Sport for working to ensure that sport in Bermuda can resume safely.”
