Police seeing breaches of Covid regulations

Police have again urged the public to follow guidelines and not mix households after several reported breaches over the weekend.

A police spokesman said that at 5.40pm on Friday officers responded to reports of several people gathering near Cedar Park Road in Devonshire.

“On arrival some individuals began to immediately disperse,” the spokesman said.

“Details of other neighbourhood residents that remained were recorded by Bermuda Police Service officers.”

Another incident was reported at 4pm on Saturday when officers heard reports of a party at a Turkey Hill, St George’s home.

The spokesman said: “On arrival people were seen leaving the residence, while others on the porch quickly went inside.

“Likewise, details of individuals and vehicles at that location were recorded by BPS officers. Court summonses for both reported breaches are anticipated in due course.”

Martin Weeks, Assistant Commissioner of Police, said: “Once again, please be mindful that the adjustments to the existing regulations do not come into effect until 5am tomorrow (TUES).

“However, even with those changes, mixing of households will remain prohibited. It is also important to note that as of 5am Tuesday, curfew hours will be 8pm until 6am every day, until further notice.”
