A member of the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service (BFRS) has tested positive for COVID-19.
On the week commencing April 27, 98 members of the BFRS were screened for COVID-19, with only one person testing positive. As at May 3, Bermuda had 115 total confirmed positive cases of COVID-19.
Wayne Caines, the Minister of National Security, thanked all Bermuda’s uniformed essential services workers for their work throughout the crisis.
“I want to assure the public that the BFRS has activated its pandemic plan and the team member has been isolated. All close contact colleagues have been identified and quarantined,” he said.
Two fire stations have been temporarily closed for deep cleaning. The stations are expected to resume normal services by May 4. While they were closed additional resources were made available at the Hamilton Station.
