Thanks for joining us Pat and John, certainly a highlight of this trip and it had been too long since we were on island at the same time. Hope to see you two in the coming week but if not have a great rest of your time on island!
The BVI government should be making a strong case to UK regulators that they should be a high priority for the vaccine both from a health and economic standpoint. They have zero herd immunity and their economy hinges on allowing open visitation.
Upon arrival people are required to undergo a 14 day quarantine, or in a specific housing or hotel "Bubble". This couple left their bubble and moved about the Island. It is setting an example with the $5,000 fine. Please do click on "Press Release" for Governments statement.
If the runway is extended the large jets coming in to land will have to approach the runway from West End and traverse the south shore of Tortola and north shores of Norman, Peter and Cooper islands to land. I’m sure the tourists who come to vacation will enjoy the sounds of jet engines while they’re sipping their Pina Coladas.
Does anyone have any somewhat educated guess as to when we can take a halfway normal trip to Italy? We are scheduled to go in March after being cancelled last March. I have serious doubts it will happen, although trying to staying optimistic. Thanks
Seems we're having a bit of a relapse. 88 positive in the USVI with 12 new cases on St. John. Lime Inn, Lime Out, Greengo's, and The Terrace are closed due to positive cases and contact tracing. Other retail stores are affected. Hearing from folks in those circles, there is one degree of separation between the businesses. The positivity rate has crept up over 5%.
Today I am social distancing in Hurricane Hole while making water and working over the Internet. Not another soul in sight.
The traffic was very heavy the night we were heading to the Palms and we were told it was the night before, too. Planning on dinner at Lee’s last night so we headed out very early to allow for the traffic and of course, we were alone most of the way with little or no traffic at all. So much for responsible planning..........
