Young Covid officials deserving of praise
My wife and I stood in the lengthy line at Perot Post Office on Monday, May 31 for our Day 8 Covid test appointment and waited only 50 minutes. (The gardens looked lovely in full bloom.)
I must say I continue to be impressed with the young officials who have been at the forefront of Bermuda’s war on Covid in our experience at vaccination and various testing locations.
At Queen Elizabeth II Park, young ladies went to great lengths to make the inconvenience, the penalty for travel, more acceptable. Their respectful approach and manner is worthy of comment.
Recognising the length of the line and the duty the staff had to perform to tackle it, individuals took the initiative to walk along the line taking names in chronological order. As we moved down the line, a gentleman appeared with completed paperwork and handed them to each named individual with precision.
This action obviously saved a great deal of time. On entering the post office for our turn, there were half a dozen officials administering the tests. The test took about ten seconds, then we were out. I did not need a free snack or water.
I think our visitors understand the necessity of the Covid tests. Us locals can take delight in making them welcome and taking time in the line to highlight what is in store as they travel around Bermuda.
