Warm hospitality continues through Covid

I was recently in Bermuda to visit my daughter and family. We had procrastinated for several months about the trip from Canada because of the extra protocols involved these days. However, when we made the decision to proceed, we were pleased with the organisation in place.

Our first step was to arrange for a Covid test within a week of departure from Canada. We then had to send proof of the negative test results to the Bermuda Government, and register with them. The process was simple and the fee of $75 per person seemed reasonable.

Upon arrival in Bermuda, our temperature was taken, registration forms were confirmed on the computer, and a Covid test was done at the airport. All personnel involved along the way were polite and efficient. We then needed to quarantine until we received confirmation of our test results, which were sent by e-mail later that night.

Further Covid tests were set for Day 4, 8 and 14 of our stay. These were done at the post office in town, and again we felt that the system was well organised and efficient. There was only one day when my results were not sent to me within 24 hours.

In short, I want to commend all those involved in Bermuda with the difficult task of balancing the pandemic with the ongoing arrival of visitors. It seems that all reasonable precautions are being taken, while still providing the same warm hospitality that Bermuda is known for.

Congratulations!
