    Not good at all! It has not been that high in weeks! What I find interesting is the number of tourists! Wonder were they are from.

    I am NOT going to allow myself to stress out about this.

    Yes, they are. I too wonder why so many non residents are testing positive. Questions that come to mind are: 1. Where do they live? 2. Where were they staying? 3. Are they vaccinated?

    And the numbers keep rising this week. I think my wife saw it was 83 cases in total with 44 of those non-residents.
    From what we’ve seen things are back to normal crowds…Moomba beach packed at the bar and dancing! Doesn’t seem like it’s going to get better.
    if this keeps up, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some restrictions reimposed soon.
    Sorry, Lisa.

    It's concerning, but I've decided I'm just going to go with it (for anyone who knows me, that's not my normal thought process!) or I'll make myself sick with stress and anxiety. As long as my pre-trip test comes back negative, I'm getting on that plane on Aug. 3rd darn it! Percentage wise, it's no more dangerous to be in Aruba right now than the US. If they decide to reinstate some restrictions, like dining, I'll just stick with the three restaurants at Manchebo (not a terrible hardship) and cancel our Black Pearl excursion. As long as they let me lay under a palapa on Eagle Beach, feed me, and let me drink, I'm going come he** or high water! I'm tired, overworked, depressed and stressed and turning another year older this week. I'm sick of this damn virus controlling my life. I'm done with you, Covid-19!! I need a Slippery Monkey and I'm getting one (to start) in two weeks on Aruba! She has spoken.
