The musical artist, Shaggy arrived in Bermuda on 8 June and left on 9 June, 2021. Records show he did not follow public health guidelines for travellers and did not wait for his arrival test results before leaving the premises at which he was staying.
He left Bermuda the day after his arrival which is the same day the Bermuda Department of Health learned of the breach of the arriving traveller requirements.
In accordance with the large group exemption application, 70 people (travellers) were anticipated to be in attendance.
65 people arrived in Bermuda for the event. The majority arrived between 5 – 7 June 2021 and left on 11 June 2021.
This all occurred in connection with the controversial boating event put in by U.S. clothing line Revolve.
There was public outcry against the following several images of what appeared to be a raft-up involving a number of so-called influencers brought in as part of the promotional experience.
At the time raft-up events were prohibited under the COVID regulations.
The situation left many residents less than impressed.
While government is adamant no permission was granted for a raft-up, Revelove Principals were quoted in the local daily as saying government was fully advised of what the boating event would involve.
Now questions are being asked as to how many other attendees were like Shaggy, not quarantined and whether any health risk may have been created as a result.
