A reinsurance firm has donated $45,000 to help pay for Covid-19 tests in schools.

PartnerRe said the donation towards lateral antigen testing was designed to help pupils get back to their classrooms.

A spokesman said: “PartnerRe is committed to supporting the Bermuda community and we hope that this will help to get us back to a more normal and consistent experience for students after the last two years of disrupted learning.”

PartnerRe gave $5,000 each to eight secondary schools – The Berkeley Institute, Bermuda High School, the Bermuda Institute, CedarBridge Academy, Mount Saint Agnes, Saltus, Somersfield Academy and Warwick Academy – to help pay for fast lateral flow tests.

The firm also gave $5,000 to support tests in public schools as part of a collective donation by the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers.
