    I do not think it is a good idea.
    I think it should remain in place til folks are vaccinated.
    I am sorry about the businesses, but folks WILL abuse it.
    I bet that it will give many the go ahead for large gatherings and cause spreading events.

    I'm with you! Counts are still too high and more non residents are testing positive. Because there is no transparency here you don't know if they are tourists but likely at least half are. Did they contact it here or did they arrive and test positive at airport. That means travel companion perhaps and some plane passengers were exposed. Anyhow, the 11PM curfew should have stayed in my opinion. Lack of leadership!

    Maybe they should just close the borders again.

    Guessing its sarcastic. I don't think for a second that the curfew is what is keeping people away at this point. Rates are still very high in most of the world...the testing to get in and sometimes to return home are much bigger issues than the curfew is. And lastly, I 100% agree with Andrea that a change is not what's needed right now. We are close to the "end" with vaccines near...no need to try and return things to "normal" before ready- JMHO.

    Not totally sarcastic, but closing at 10:00 or 11:00 is far from normal.
