    Talking EVERYONE please read this

    It's come time to remind everyone that Andrea, Jacki and I do not make rules or set policy concerning covid-19 testing, isolation and quarantine related to the covid-19 virus on the island of Aruba. These are made by the government of Aruba and are usually presented by the Prime Minister, the Honorable Evelyn Wever-Croes. We don't have time to keep repeating the same information day after day after day. We also don't have time to repeatedly answer and moderate "what ifs" and "how comes" over and over. Most importantly we don't have the time to respond to posts insinuating we don't care or that we think your post is whatever you consider illegitimate or anything else. Please don't accuse us of that. We love you guys and try to do the best job we can to keep you informed of what is happening on the island and elsewhere. If you are dissatisfied with our actions or responses, I apologize for all of us. It's not intentional, nor are we trying to argue, belittle anyone or blow you off. It's just that we are as upset as you are, concerned about a place and its people we all love and care about. And we don't have all of the answers, but we try to get them for you guys every time you ask. So all I ask is that when we tell you what the rules are, that's what they are. It's not open for debate, we don't really care if you agree with it, but in the end it is what ARUBA says it is, not us. We all work very hard to keep this forum civil and informative. If you want to keep beating a dead horse (downtown parking comes to mind) take it to Facebook or Trip Advisor, both seem to thrive on that kind of stuff. But if you want the best and latest information on all happenings on the island, stick with us. Again, we are trying so hard to help and are doing the best we can. Thanks you guys for reading this far, we sincerely appreciate every single one of you.

    Walt

    Remember, we will get through this together.

    and also remember this link has the latest and greatest info:

    Hey Walt. I do believe that we all appreciate everyone’s efforts. Unfortunately, in these times anxiety and stress take their toll. The written word doesn’t always come through the way it should!

    You are all doing a fantastic job as is Aruba. If anyone thinks otherwise, that's on them, not you or the wonderful people of our Happy Island. I for one am truly grateful for the time, effort and dedication you devote to this Forum. And I know I'm not alone in feeling that way! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    To be clear....Jackie, Andrea and Walt...we are grateful for all your efforts. I agree with you...there is an official site that addresses the issues and I have found the response time from questions I have raised on the official site to come in a timely manner. As Peg said...these are trying times and we are all anxious.

    great statement!

    agree, the info provided here is so helpful and friendly, but truthful and insightful all at once.

    even info not on the official manifestos released by the Aruba govt available here, thanks to the abovementioned moderators.

    thx for your time, efforts, and care.
    truth and facts go a long way.

    I know that I sure appreciate you all do for this forum;
    if it wasn't here so very sure lots of us including "me" would not know what's going on.
    Some people need to take a "chill" pill or two.
    Again, I personally thank all that is done for this forum and great advice.

    My sincere apologies to anyone I offended with my posts. I always try to thank those for the information they provide. If I have further questions it is because I want to understand what the current situation is. I never attack anyone for any reason.
