  1. That Dashboard updated on March 15,2021 not March 16,2021.ANR,because you posted it into your portal on March 16.Does not mean the information is up to that day.Look at the fine prints on the above Dashboard.What has become of the information on Hospitalizations. That new Board is so kindergarten.

  2. @ red Kool aid – agree where are hospitalization numbers?

    Miraculous! Single digit new cases, just nine, & I think Saturday was a solitary person.
    Wonder if math massaging occurring to support opening for biz date???

    I’m happy to reopen based on prudence:
    If the data truly supports it.
    If ARRIVAL protocols are set clearly for
    a) fully vaccinated arrivals
    b) partially vaccinated & negative test non-vaccinated arrivals
    That national mask, distance & sanitize continues for EVERYONE, residents AND visitors.
    That every one of us understands being fully vaccinated is a really big help but does NOT allow for no masks, distancing or sanitization in public places – we must keep that up, as with increased tourists & returning Nationals comes increased risk of variants arriving through asymptomatic travellers.

  3. Now they’re just playing games with the numbers. It’s called Hide the Dashboard. In the last 24 hrs there were actually 29 new cases revealed to the public. They’re releasing some of the bigger numbers late at night so that they will get buried by other news by the time you check again in the morning. Watch closely. The dashboards with the smaller numbers are now spending more time in your face than the bigger numbers.

    I wonder what they will do if people continue to get infected after all the vaccinations take place. The population is about 100,000 but remember those below 18 make up a large portion and the vaccines are not approved for them. That means that a significant percentage of the adult population has been vaccinated based on the information above. Yet infection is still happening daily.
