Boaters intercepted by coastguard
Coastguard boats on patrol escorted two vessels to St George's for customs clearance last week.
The service, part of the Royal Bermuda Regiment, also intercepted and turned back a boat with four people on board who had headed out to fish because the vessel did not have a fishing licence.
The incidents happened on Thursday.
Wayne Caines, the national security minister, said: “The RBR continues to provide support to essential government personnel in a variety of capacities, including the Department of Health, with critical tasks including the transporting of our healthcare workers via government buses.”
He added RBR soldiers had also helped government staff relocate an emergency centre for the homeless, from the Berkeley Institute in Pembroke to CedarBridge Academy at Prospect, Devonshire.
Mr Caines said more than 4,000 vehicles were stopped on Thursday as shelter-in-place checkpoints continued across the island.
He added police officers and regiment soldiers had manned a total of 27 checkpoints.
Mr Caines said returned travellers in the government-run quarantine centre had been given their first care packages — dropped off by friends and family.
He said: “Essential care package drop-offs will follow the day-of-the-week, surname pattern and drop-offs will continue tomorrow, Tuesday and next Friday.
“The drop-off time is from 1pm to 5pm. Again, the essential care package should contain key items such as toiletries, medication and essential foods, inclusive of any special dietary items.”
