If all things fall in the place, I hope to spend Christmas on BVI. Heck, I hope to stay until Commonwealth Day or when the money runs out.

Great to see you going down - with a longer vacation span the testing requirements would not be a problem.

Nowhere better than Anegada. Better than all the sirens and screaming people downrtown Toronto. I live near Dundas and Jarvis(maybe breeze by Adagio if I want some excitement in LB. )

Good luck. All three segments of our December flights were canceled, so Friday we booked for January, paying extra for the earlier Seaborne flight.

This morning I checked and Seaborne has canceled the earlier flight. They now have a late morning flight - useless for anyone arriving on a red-eye, and an early afternoon flight - too early for anyone coming in that day. So two useless flights! I'm wondering if this is because if the 90 minute interval between flights into Beef. Back to the drawing board!

Interesting and effective is the 90 interval for arrivals. Good

VI Airlink does not service SJU. You'll need to use Cape Air, InterCaribbean, Silver, or Air Sunshine.

Intercarribbean it is. Usually fly direct to SXM Westjet then list EIS. Whole trip took less than 6 hours.

Is that the protocol for Canadians? You have to be down for an extended period?

Had no wish to offend - my question was about your being able to go at all.

Canadians can go down - the issue has been quarantining for 14 days upon return.

My city (Thunder Bay on Lake Superior) has had virtually no cases of Covid.

Until this week and we're now over 40.

Caused by people travelling to hot spots (Winnipeg in this case) and not quarantining on their return.

Inconvenient though this may be, this is serious stuff.

and this is the bottom line isn't it? places which have had little or no outbreak at all are susceptible to just one carrier getting through the net because this things spreads unbelievably, and then we all rely on medical facilities/ backup. opening up doesn't mean the danger is over sadly.
