BPO Recognises Essential Workers with stamp

In a gesture of appreciation, the Bermuda Post Office (BPO) is paying tribute to all essential workers who have helped during the COVID-19 pandemic by repurposing one of its existing stamps.

The BPO has recently revised the 50 cent shell stamp and released it as a special envelope.

The stamp which depicts a Bermuda cone shell has been overprinted with the title: “Honouring All Essential Workers”.

The envelope features the Star of Life used by many countries around the world to represent emergency and medical services.

There is also a message on the envelope that reads: Thank you to everyone who is working so hard to help us through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Today the Minister for the Cabinet Office, Wayne Furbert said, “Many countries around the world have taken the opportunity to celebrate and honor their essential workers by producing a stamp. The Stamp Design Advisory Committee has decided to use an already existing stamp and run an overprint message thanking our essential workers. We are grateful for all of their life-saving and critical work over these last 17 months.”

The envelopes are now available at the Bermuda Post Office at a cost of $2.00 each.
