Update on interlocutory relief sought pursuant to the Bermuda Constitution Order, 1968 – Covid-19 restrictions and the Public Interest

On 9 June 2021, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Bermuda, the Hon. Mr. Narinder Hargun, in his first ruling regarding Brewster et al. v. Premier of Bermuda et al. refused an application to enjoin a change to the Public Health (Covid-19) Emergency Powers Regulations, 2021. The change in question required all non-immunised people, travelling to Bermuda, to quarantine in a preapproved hotel or guesthouse. Furthermore, the travellers in question were required to bear the cost of their stay at the Government approved facilities.
