    Stepping back and taking deep breath

    Been monitoring daily updates for a while. Recent stats very worrisome and found myself getting worked up. Needed to pause and reflect. Day to day monitoring is not a trend!! Just saw the weekly report on visitaruba.com. Looking back over a 4 week period, the number of cases is under 500 for 28/days (this is one of CDC’s thresholds to lower Aruba to a level 3 travel advisory - 500/28 or around average ~16/day). The number of hospitalizations in Aruba and Columbia combined are down. Vaccination rates have Aruba near the top globally and once they begin vaccinating under 12 should really improve.

    Bottom line - watching daily numbers will have many ups and downs and while cannot be ignored, taking a longer term view definitely helps.

    Having said that - keeping fingers crossed and praying for an end to this horrible pandemic.

    We were back and forth on going-we went and am so glad we did. We had a great time albeit quieter than normal- we ate outside as much as possible, did no tours,masked up and did not go into crowded spaces. Was a much needed and relaxed vacation

    Yeah. Could use some relaxing ” beach” time. Same here regarding staying outside as much as possible and avoiding crowds.
