    Not good at all! But as long as cruise ships (3 today 2 of which are on yellow code...which I believe means new infections on board in the last 7 days) are allowed to dock and people are floating around down town and elsehwhere ( Eagle beach has many umbrellas for cruise ship passengers) the numbers will not go down! Over a thousand local workers have checked in for sick leave....which costs $$. We know the variant spreads easily...but when no steps are taken to try to minimize...well you get what you get. No one on my street has moved all day....everyone is local except us...and they all work or go to school (usually). As you can see, I for one am very disappointed in how this is being handled!

    Interestingly, the number of active non-residents seems to stay around 650 in the last several days. So despite ~100 new non-residents testing positive each day, a similar number are being released to go home. Still, mid 600's is probably way more than the number of rooms the government has been able to secure for isolation purposes.
