    So disturbing to see these numbers. My only bit of hope is that the hospitalizations don’t seem to be rising.

    As Aruba has now stopped testing upon arrival we will soon have a better picture of the number of tourists who are testing positive at departure. Today’s numbers are disturbing.
    My grandchildren just tested positive today. As it turns out their babysitter (who fancies calling herself a nanny) is unvaccinated and has Covid. Unfortunately my son and daughter-in-law think she’s Mary Poppins. I’ll hold my tongue on my opinion.
    Thankfully this strain isn’t like the others. The babies and parents have mild cold like symptoms. My son had coronavirus in August 2019. He was deathly ill. It was scary. This past July they had to cancel joining us in Aruba because he tested positive before leaving. He and my daughter-in-law are fully vaccinated so why they allow this babysitter near the kids beats the heck out of me. Hopefully now they’ll insist she gets vaccinated.

    So sorry to hear this, especially about the kiddies as they aren't the ones making choices about who is in their home. As you said, hopefully this will drive a change in behavior going forward.

    Mary Poppins deserves a good pop in the head! I'm hoping the infection is mild and over with quickly.
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    All I can say is, thank heaven that the hospitalizations have not risen along with the # of cases. I fear Aruba will soon run out of accommodations for those who are positive. I think it's a good thing we cancelled our March trip for the second year in a row. We did not cancel due to Covid fears, rather for temporary financial reasons. We are fully vaxxed and boosted, as are our families. Youngest granddaughter (who is 6) is scheduled for vax next week. In the meantime we are living our lives, also being careful. Stay safe everyone. Hope this spike is temporary
