A tribute concert to honour Bermuda’s first Olympic gold medal winner will be held at Victoria Park on Monday, according to a large group exemption notice.

The exemption, published in the Official Gazette, grants the Department of Culture permission to host a gathering of 183 people between 10am and 6pm for the Flora Duffy Tribute Concert and Reception at the Hamilton park.

In the event of bad weather, the event will be moved to the Earl Cameron Theatre in City Hall.

The notice states that the concert would be a SafeKey event and that masks must be worn indoors and outdoors if six-feet social-distancing cannot be maintained.

Contact tracing details will also be collected and there must be at least one marshall for every 50 attendees.

The exemption also requires sanitising stations at the entrance of any indoor areas and that lines for food, drink and bathrooms must be marked to ensure social distancing.

Employees must be screened for signs of Covid-19 at the start of their shift, with sick employees required to go home.

The concert is one of several events to be held on Monday as part of Flora Duffy Day – a public holiday celebrating the triathlete’s victory at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Monday will also feature a renaming ceremony for the National Stadium to become Flora Duffy Stadium – and Ms Duffy will visit Corkscrew Hill in Devonshire, which will be renamed Flora Duffy Hill.

The Government said that many of the events will be live-streamed and recorded for broadcast on CITV.
