Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie has said the additional approved mooring sites of Little Harbour, Great Harbour and Deadman’s Bay have been added to the marine protocol for those quarantining on approved vessels for the mandatory four complete days upon entry in to the Territory.

Premier Fahie said this decision was made with the intention of minimising risks.

The Premier said, “The value of increasing the number of mooring sites for ‘Days 0-4’ is the subsequent decrease in the risk of interaction and contact between persons quarantining on their vessels, thus effectively helping to minimise the spread of COVID-19.”

Per the amendment to the Marine Protocol, guests will commence quarantine on their boats on Day 0 having completed all required inspections and entry requirements, including their Day 0 PCR test.

Other approved mooring sites include Benures Bay, Soldier Bay, South Bay, Spring Bay, White Bay, Hallovers Bay, Valley Trunk Bay, Long Bay, Malone Bay, George Dog, Lee Bay, Muskmelon Bay, Pomato Point (West) and Manchioneel Bay.

 The list and accompanying map of approved mooring sites can be found at bvitourism.com/reopening. Any questions can be emailed to reopening@bvitourism.com or asked via WhatsApp at 284-496-6129.
