    Okay these are back to a total mess when you look at the giant jump in Hospital numbers. There are now 24 when there was only 10 about a week ago is a giant spike. Not good at all.
    Just Booked trip 36- Trip report starting in June.

    Gotta believe that you've got the resident non-resident numbers reversed.

    don"t bother, we get the message.Stayed at playa linda for the month of dec. Saw NO effort to sanitize and some employees had no masks. there was a purell dispenser in the elevator with directions to use before piushing the buttons. It was empty for a week. Just cancelled my 3 weeks at Paradise beach. Hopefully Aruba will realize that they are part of the problem.

    We had the opposite experience at the Bucuti in Sept of this year. Purell dispensers everywhere (misting type that required a wave of the hand and not touching a bottle) and always working. All employees wearing a mask at all times - and properly fitting masks at that. Even the servers on the beach. Felt very safe there.

    Having said that, Omicron is a different beast. Crazy transmissibility. We feel that despite the efforts the Bucuti is taking and despite our own efforts, it just may not be possible to avoid catching Omicron while traveling to or being in Aruba - at least at this time. We do feel the situation will settle way down in the next several months and then it will again be safe for us to return.

    I think this burst of positive cases is due to the omicron strain..... and here's an article I was reading last night that gives me some hope!

    Omicron variant in the U.S.: Omicron cases could fall just as quickly as they rose, CDC says (nbcnews.com)

    Agree 100%. When we were in Aruba in September, all staff at the Marriott wore masks. Once or twice I caught GUESTS not wearing them cutting through the lobby but that’s not on the hotel. In September the variant was more dangerous but much less contagious. We took precautions and fared well. We felt totally safe and so happy we went. Now with Omicron the difference is anyone can get it no matter what. Testing positive in Aruba on the way home is not what I would risk right now. In the past few weeks those who have tested positive have not been able to get through to the Aruba Health Department for assistance - total chaos. This is not Aruba’s fault. They just can’t handle the volume. But I truly believe things will change for the better in the next 2 months.

    agree colette m

    I believe it is the fault of no one/everyone.

    we all need to do what we can to prevent the spread.

    when we were at LaCabana first 2 weeks of Dec, the masking was taken very seriously.
    we saw numerous folks being reminded.......often.
    we saw and used the and sanitizers and they were filled when needed filling.

    volume..............it is all about the volume of bodies. too many, too incautious, too close, too discouraged, too angry, too much in denial, and sadly yes too stupid.


    we are now 8 days past the holiday celebration period.

    I am hoping the peak in aruba and here in florida is hit by Friday 15th and then we watch the steep decline.
