  6. We've had to be near-draconian, but with a velvet glove and a persuasive female Prime Minister. It hasn't been easy, and it isn't easy now. And it will be like this for the next year or so, unfortunately. About 2-3 months ago we hurried created a hospital with isolation facilities in the scenic North of the island. 200 bed capacity. 'Les Miserables' get sent there when the test comes back Positive! So we can handle y'all! Rockley beach -top Hilton Beach -below
  7. Gradually, we are seeing more visitors here on the island of Barbados. Nice to see y'all returning to our shores Flights come in quite often now and inevitably 2 or 3 Covids get picked out and isolated locally. People on those flights sitting near to such identified, get monitored for the next week or so, and the local health authorities DO go around to their places and conduct further tests!! Must say they have it fairly well worked out so we can benefit from some small degree of tourism economy while keeping this wretched Covid-19 curse down to a low roar, locally so we don't get any community spread but it takes a bit or work to get it all done! Then again NOTHING is ever easy!
