    New record number of active non-resident cases on the Island (646). This even with the new shorter isolation period.

    The positivity rate (62%) is simply stunning.

    I have been traveling a lot in the past year (Jamaica, Turks, Mexico, Jamaica, Aruba) and was never really nervous. I took all precautions and stayed safe. This new wave has me VERY worried. We still wear masks, but my kids go back to school tomorrow where masks are not mandatory, and between athletics, lunch, and choir, I know they will be exposed. I've gone two years and not gotten sick, but I think that streak is about to end... especially with quarantine reduced down to 5 days.

    big sigh..........reminder that the numbers posted today are reflective of yesterday's testing.
    less residents test on the weekends than on weekdays.

    this is such a challenge...........for EVERYONE....the tourists, the travel industry , the ATA and the AHATA, EVERYONE is challenged with this covid pandemic.

    Yes for sure - for all concerned! Seems to be more risky now to travel internationally than at the beginning of the pandemic since this variant is the most contagious we’ve had.

    Most likely they may have to stop allowing tourist to enter until this blows over . With the current non resident high infection rate and unable to house them for quarantine it might be an option.

    I agree. Sounds like the best alternative right now but I know it is sad for tourism.
