A man who wishes to remain anonymous did not fully complete his travel authorization form before returning to Bermuda on Thursday July 22. As a result, the words “ action required” were written on his form and he was required to quarantine at a government-approved hotel, but the government would cover the expenses.
“ I wanted to stay at Willowbank, since it would be closer to my family, but was told that I would be going to Southampton Princess. I did not have a say in it,” he said.
He smelled mold throughout the entire building as soon as he arrived at the hotel and voiced the issue to staff and told them that it would pose a problem for him and was told that the situation was fine and that the hotel had passed government inspection.
“ The air quality [in the hotel] is bad for someone with underlying health conditions and would even be bad for healthy people to be living in those conditions,” he said. “ If it were a functioning hotel, the government would have shut it down quite a while ago.”
“On top of [the mold situation], I was told that I could not come out of my hotel room. If I wanted to exercise, someone would have to accompany me,” he continued. “These people have just been running me around in circles.”
Another thing that the gentleman does not understand is how someone who may test positive for the virus would be able to quarantine at their homes, whereas he, who happens to be unvaccinated, must quarantine at a hotel despite already receiving two negative COVID PCR tests (one overseas and one in Bermuda.)
“ [A lot of doctors have said] that natural immunity (from people who have recovered from the virus) is better than vaccination immunity, yet people who have received natural immunity are still being placed in a different category from vaccinated persons; when we are both risks to the community.”
According to him, the only way that he can leave the facility before the 14-day period and quarantine at his home where he lives by himself would be to receive a doctor’s note.
