    Greetings

    Hello folks. Just joined this forum and wanted to say hello. My wife and I have a trip planned for the end of October. We will be staying at the Riu Antillas, though my wife is very nervous about any vacation travel. I'm hoping we have a few months of no covid infections by the time we depart. We had to cancel our trip in March of this year and really miss the wonderful time we have each and every time we visit Aruba.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum Peter!
    I believe that now that Aruba is open you will see a smattering of cases here and there.
    the spike that they are having now was kind of expected, but not expected it to be their own residents as the main infected.

    I expect to see these positive numbers dropping within the next 9 days and then flattening.

    All need to remain vigilant and following the physical distancing, mask wearing and hand washing.

    I hope they keep the bars and nightclubs closed for a while.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I certainly hope that the end of October finds Aruba almost Covid free. My wife is very nervous about air travel. We've booked through Sunwing, which is a direct flight and a reasonably priced high end package. Have until 3 hours before the flight to make a decision. I may be coming alone. lol
