Unimmunised travellers WITH a valid pre-arrival test must complete a 4-day government quarantine stay, and will be tested on Day 3 of their stay. Upon receipt of a negative test result, travellers will be allowed to quarantine at an accommodation of their choosing for the remaining 10 days of their 14-day quarantine.

Unimmunised travellers who transition to a home quarantine will be required to specify if they can quarantine alone or if they will be sharing a household with others. If sharing a household with others, the traveller will have to list the names and contact information for all household members. All adult members of the household will be contacted and asked to sign a waiver agreeing to quarantine with the traveller for the remainder of the traveller's quarantine, wear a red wristband during their quarantine, and get tested 13 days after the traveller's arrival to Bermuda (this test will be scheduled for household members at Perot). The traveller will not be released from government quarantine until all adult household members have signed their waivers.
