    I agree. Can't wait to get my vaccine in the next couple of months. I miss Aruba but see the end in sight.

    when we were in Aruba, staying at the LaCabana, a few doors away from us was an Aruban husband and wife and about 15 of their nearest and dearest friends.The friends were not staying over, but did come most days at about 5 pm and spent hours at the grill and picnic tables outside of their room. this went on during our first weekend there Nov 28 til Dec 1. They were close proximity to each other and I believe that this happens regularly at the resorts and at their homes. They may keep their distance at work, but they are not practicing good social practices and following the proper protocols.

    I believe that local spread is happening because of incidents like this.




    they were unmasked and all having a very good time.

    That is exactly what several of my friends who live on the island have said since day one. Its all an act around the "guests" but when they leave the hotel 95% are doing as they did before. Thankfully my friends seem to be doing the right thing.

    The cases will go back up naturally. That's just the global pandemic life. The only question is how much it goes up until it comes back down. The Netherlands for instance experienced their 2nd wave and then platuead at a bad level. Now they had to lockdown because they are going through their worst spike since the pandemic began. Neighboring Curaçao had to declare a state of emergency and they have the military patrolling the streets together with police. That Aruba has managed to bring the cases down from the 2nd wave and has(up to now) maintained the cases at a very manageable level for a few months now even with open borders, says a lot about the protocols in place. The cases haven't gone up by that much though. As long as it stays under 30 new cases per day, we are okay(per the health minister).

    We know from the DVG statistics that the vast majority of infections happen in the family and work environment. As far as I know that's the case in most countries. Interactions are still down something like 90% it feels though. Normally in December everyone has many different events with something happening daily. Now it's maybe one or two small events.
