  1. Seemingly this spike from a large church gathering. Barbados back on curfew & restrictions.

    BVI at over 480 cases last week, from almost zero, coincided with first cruise ship call 7-10 days prior. They are back on curfew _ & bars, entertainment, gyms, spas, hair salons etc. closed again. No income for thousands of people. Restricted movement.

    Covid-19 is still a global pandemic, with virulent variants.
    It is coming back strong to A&B, just a question of when.

    Mask, sanitize, distance
    & consider vaccination – majority of current big country, & islands, hospitalizations are unvaccinated people.
    Imagine your pocket if your workplace has to close for a period because you or one of your co-workers tests positive.
