I'd be happy if they just eliminated the day four testing and Gold Seal transport. I don't buy the "bubble" for the cruise ship visitors, and there's no reason others should be subject to more stringent conditions.
We have had wonderful meals at skipjack in the past. Maybe an off night for you. I've had one off experience there before but subsequent visits were wonderful. Looking forward to the reopening. I'll check them out this coming May.
If you own your own place in the bvi but you decide to go on a charter to begin your trip where you will spend the 4 day quarantine and someone tests positive are you allowed to finish the quarantine in your own place at end of charter? I have visions of the couples that veered over the line and were stuck in a small hotel room, in their case waiting till they paid ransom.
Dinghy access to Booby Rock and Kiddel/Grootpan is best as they are in the Coral Reef National Monument. Eagle Shoal is not in the monument. Day charters do anchor at Kiddel/Grootpan as moorings have been full and the usual snorkel stops have been crowded this season.
There really has been very little outreach to citizens here to get their vaccines. It's a shame that a better PR campaign(s) was not mounted. Perhaps the local governments simply anticipated that people would be lining up for their vaccines? Apparently there are a number of local Facebook groups where antivax and vax disinformation is quite prevalent, and people are convinced they are either unnecessary or downright harmful.
My wife and I are grateful to have got our vaccines (Pfizer) on the Dutch side. She has had both, I get my second in 13 days. Everyone at the vaccination center was so professional and so nice - reminding me that this is the Friendly Island.
