Bermuda Safe Meeting Protocols
- News |
Bermuda is Open. Here’s What Business Travellers Need to Know.
Bermuda has excelled at controlling the spread of COVID-19 – and is open for business. You can safely meet here and host clients. More flights are coming back on-line, and lots of accommodation options are available.
The island’s COVID-19 protocols have been lauded by international bodies and has been declared a “safe travels” destination. L.F. Wade International Airport has also earned recognition for its health and safety measures.
However, as a small island destination with thriving business and tourism sectors as the main industries, the island wants to remain safe for all residents and visitors alike. Therefore, we ask that you follow the rules. The managers of the meeting spaces you use will have procedures and protocols and we ask that you follow them at all times.
Meeting and Office Space Guidelines
The government of Bermuda has provided practical advice on how infection prevention and control methods can be implemented. It suggests:
- That where possible, to increase ventilation rates within the office to recirculate fresh air into the workspace.
- Ensure there are ample hand sanitisers in the meeting spaces.
- Ensuring at least 2 meters (6 feet) are maintained between attendees. This may necessitate the need for larger meeting spaces or the use of multiple conference rooms to facilitate a meeting.
- Soft and porous materials, such as area rugs and upholstered seating, may be removed or stored to reduce the challenges with cleaning and disinfecting them.
We encourage you to wear a mask, physically distance, sanitise or wash your hands regularly, keep meeting rooms clean with good ventilation and don’t share pens or any other stationary. If you are feeling unwell, please do not join the meeting in person.
How Bermuda is Safe for Travellers
As well as protocols for meeting spaces, Bermuda has instituted wide-ranging protocols across its tourism sector as well as the LF Wade International Airport, which have both been recognized with international awards.
The airport earned an accreditation in the Airports Council International [ACI] Airport Health Accreditation programme for its COVID-19 protocols, which included installing plexiglass barriers and expanding the cleaning regime.
Bermuda has also earned a global stamp of approval for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and the high level of health-and-safety protocols across its tourism industry from the World Travel and Tourism Council, which recognised the island as a ‘Safe Travels’ destination.
We are a safe destination, where you can work, rest and play. We look forward to seeing you soon.
