Unvaccinated hotel staff to get weekly coronavirus tests
Hotel staff not vaccinated against Covid-19 will have to get tested for the coronavirus every seven days from next Tuesday, the Bermuda Hotel Association announced today.
The BHA said the policy would apply in all its member hotels.
A spokeswoman said: “The purpose of the policy is to ensure that all non-immunised hotel employees are aware of their health status as a means of protecting themselves, their co-workers, family members, visitors and guests, as well as all members of the wider community.
“The hotel industry as a key employer wishes to ensure that we exercise a heightened level of care for the safety of everyone as we seek to successfully achieve the reopening of our tourism economy.”
The policy is in line with the Government’s mandatory quarantine restrictions for non-immunised travellers, which is expected to come into force on June 24.
