Vaccination rules for child travellers explained by BTA
Children aged 17 and under who travel to Bermuda will not have to have had Covid-19 vaccine or quarantine – as long as all adults in their travelling group are vaccinated.
The rules, posted online by the Bermuda Tourism Authority, will remain in force after June 6, when non-immunised travellers to the island must undergo 14 days of supervised quarantine at their own expense.
The restrictions were outlined on April 27 in a national address by David Burt, the Premier, after a surge in coronavirus cases.
The BTA said that non-immunised travellers will have to quarantine until they get a clear Day 4 test result for the virus until June 5.
Immunised travellers were defined as having received all required doses of vaccine, with a minimum of two weeks since the final dose.
Full details are on the BTA website here.
The Bermuda Government is to deliver an update on the restrictions expected after June 6 at a press conference tomorrow.
The BBC reported today that Canada has cleared children 12 and above to receive the Pfizer vaccine – and that the US planned to give the jab to children aged 12 to 15 “as soon as possible”.
