None of the 881 coronavirus test results received by the Ministry of Health today were positive.

A spokeswoman said: “The Ministry of Health wishes to remind members of the public of the recent amendment to the Public Health regulations limiting raft-ups to a maximum of three boats.

“Also, the public are reminded that physical distancing is required on commercial boats — or ‘party boats’ — as well as on private boats, if households are mixed.”

Bermuda has had 168 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 151 people have recovered.

Eight cases are active and under public health monitoring — none are in hospital.

Nine people with Covid-19 have died.

Two cases are under investigation to determine the sources of transmission.

The island’s country status is “sporadic cases” and the seven-day average of Bermuda’s real time reproduction number is below 1.
