April 29, 2020 Bermuda Calendar Update
We’ve reached the end of the month of April and normally this time of year would bring lots of fun outdoor events to the calendar, but as the number of positive COVID-19 tests rises in Bermuda it’s more important now than ever that we stay at home to slow the spread of this dangerous virus. So here’s a round up of online activities to assist you as we shelter in place and stay safe.
We hope you find this information useful and welcome you to let us know if you are offering any products or services that we can share with our audience by emailing info@BermudaEvents.com. Be sure to follow us on social media as well for updates.
