someone posted a trip report on another site.
the last paragraph said it all so I copied and posted it here.

"While it is matter of opinion on COVID and how you want to handle. If you currently stay home and don’t go anywhere then don’t go on vacation. But if you go out to eat, shopping, normal stuff outside of your house, then why not visit Aruba and help them? This island is all tourism and we have tipped heavily. Everyone is nice and appreciative of us being here. They want current tourists to spread the word of life on the island."
