Police: firms complying with regulations

Businesses which failed to comply with Covid-19 regulations have stepped up their game, according to police.

The Bermuda Police Service said it has been working with the Chamber of Commerce to ensure all restaurants and retail establishments are implementing physical distancing and ensuring protective face masks are being worn.

Parish constables from the Community Policing Division visited businesses to speak with owners and patrons yesterday.

A police spokeswoman said: “We are happy to report that, for the most part, business were doing their part by placing markers six feet apart, displaying signage and had staff monitoring the lines to enforce physical distancing and the wearing of masks.

“During the weekend, there were a number of reports made to the Covid portal as well as on social media that some retail establishments and restaurants were not being compliant with the Covid-19 regulations.

“The Bermuda Police Service has been in contact with these premises and we are satisfied that they have now taken the necessary steps to ensure compliance with Covid-19 regulations.”

She added: “We would like to say thank you to all the establishments who have already taken the necessary measures to keep us all safe. For those business who are not in compliance, please follow the example of those who have.

“We also ask that members of the public adhere to rules and guidelines set in place by business establishments. We all need to do our part if we wish to move on to the next phase of reopening.”
