Not for nothing, that's what I'm talking about. Going out in the streets as NYC did.

Agree 100% . As someone's whose parents live on island, and has seen elderly relatives die because of access/ignorance/or both, they need to get trusted people in the communities, holding events, incentives, etc. My parents got vaccinated because we could ask our relatives to handle all the logistics for them. Not everyone has that.

Exactly. And someone needs to reach out to educate the clergy, and then have them help with the vax initiative.

Meet them where they are.

Sint Maarten has in fact done various "pop-up" vaccination locations in recent months. I don't know how well attended they were, or if that effort continues.

I am wondering what a Lockdown could mean for Cruise Ships visiting the Islands? Possibly not letting anyone off of the Ships, no Island excursions, etc? Maybe even cancelation of the Cruises that begin in SXM. The first Cruise to leave New Orleans is Carnival Glory, scheduled to leave in less than three weeks. The annual Jazz Fest that was scheduled was canceled again, so I am waiting for the Cruise out of N.O. to take the same route.

I would think a negative Covid test from a cruise passenger would be treated the same as a negative test from am airline passenger

The Jazz Cruise LINK is happily ON out of Miami in January. Sorry for the thread drift.

Went shopping today and the majority of customers have masks on. I overheard two butchers bringing meat out questioning why the customers all have masks on again? One butcher said to the other because you can still get the China virus even though you are vaccinated. The other butcher asked but can vaccinated people spread the virus? The first butcher said Who knows anymore.

Seriously the is insane!

Sxmmartini, you have what you think is a crafty way of making intentional offensive rabbit hole posts.
