Bermuda government orders bars and clubs to be closed by midnight

In a measure aimed to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country, the government of Bermuda has issued an order to shut down all bars and restaurant by midnight. 

The Minister of Health Kim Wilson said: “ “The purpose in reducing the hours of operation is to reduce the opportunity to engage in social mixing in a setting that can lead to a less robust adherence to public health protocols. 

“This Government recognizes that this is a difficult pill to swallow at this festive time of year. However, we will continue to work with our stakeholders, and will re-evaluate all of these more restrictive public health protocols early in the New Year.”
