Covid-19 outbreak responsible for Hospital Wards Quarantine

A Bermuda Hospitals Board spokesperson said: “We may feel like COVID is behind us, but it is important to remember that it’s still circulating in the community. Respiratory infections like COVID and flu can be particularly dangerous for our vulnerable patients and residents, whose immune systems may already be compromised.


“Members of the public should postpone visiting their loved ones in hospital if they don’t feel well. Even if visitors feel well, we recommend they wear masks when in close contact with patients in case they are infectious but do not have symptoms. Our policy is that staff wear masks for all patient interactions to minimise any chance of infection between staff and patients.


Two long-term care unit at KEMH and a unit at MWI are currently subject to quarantine measures and a pause to visitation as some patients have tested positive for COVID. Patients in these areas are being monitored and receiving appropriate care as needed. Some of our 1,800 staff members are also on leave due to COVID infections.”
