Covid-19: police caution over home visits
Residents have been urged to inform police of their travel history and any flu symptoms before officers visit their home.
Stephen Corbishley, the Commissioner of Police, announced a series of precautionary measures put in place by the Bermuda Police Service in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mr Corbishley said: “If the situation warrants that an officer comes to your residence, we urge you to inform the officer you speak with on the phone, whether any occupant has been diagnosed as having Covid-19, any occupant has recently returned from overseas travel or any occupant has displayed symptoms of cold or flu.
“Officers responding to calls will, in the interest of public and personal safety, maintain a safe social distance during questioning or recording of information.
“This is for the good of both you and the officer.”
He added: “Your Bermuda Police Service stands ready to assist in these uncertain times and will maintain the highest standards of policing that you have come to expect from us. We urge you to do your part in helping us to do so, by please following these guidelines.”
Residents should use 911 for all emergencies. For non-emergency inquiries call 295-0011. Do not visit police stations to make a report unless the matter is of a serious nature.
People are told to use hand sanitiser stations at the entrances of police stations. Doors and countertops will be regularly disinfected.
