Police warning on Phase 4 crowd sizes

Police today reminded the public about limits on the size of public gatherings after reports of events that attracted crowds of more than the permitted 50 people.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Martin Weekes said: “We have now entered Phase 4 of the island's reopening plan ‘new normal' which has seen the relaxation of a number of previous restrictions.”

But he said: “We, however, urge the public to not let their guard down and to continue to do their part to prevent the further spread of the virus.”

Exemptions to the coronavirus safety rule need a permit from the Ministry of National Security.

Strict regulations also include the use of masks and social distancing.

Mr Weekes said police were aware of plans to hold similar large gatherings in neighbourhoods and parks.

He added: “We refer those organising such gatherings to the guidance available at www.gov.bm

“The BPS will be meeting with organisers of gatherings to ensure compliance with regulations and will be monitoring crowds at recurring neighbourhood events and will take the necessary measures to hold organisers accountable.”

Anyone with information on breaches of the regulations can report them at https://portal.police.bm
