Organisers of a Good Friday gathering which allegedly breached Covid-19 social distancing regulations are likely to appear in court soon, police said today.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said that at around 8.30pm on Friday, police responded to a report of a Covid-19 breach at a Bostock Hill East, Paget residence.

Upon arrival, they saw a group of approximately 20 people standing on an outside porch, reportedly not practising social distancing or wearing masks.

As officers approached, people began to leave but the incident was recorded on police body cameras and the registrations of a number of vehicles at the house were also recorded.

The spokesman said organisers of the event were identified and a file on the matter is being prepared in anticipation of a court appearance.

The spokesman also reminded members of the public that people gathering at parks and playing fields for group sports should avoid any sporting activity that causes the mixing of households.
