    Re: Back on SBH

    In my experience, it's not unusual to talk about tomorrow's dinner while eating tonight's dinner. We do live meal-to-meal on St Barth, LOL.

    Worst case, one should discuss tonight's...

    Re: SBH-Related Coronavirus Information

    From the Collectivité - If there were only 3 new cases in the week from October 4 - October 11 then that suggests that there were 10 new cases in the missing week of September 28 - October 4.

    April has some of the best weather of the year. Not too rainy, not too hot, and most if not all of the restaurants are still open. Also, low-season pricing kicks in on April 15.

    Re: St Barths departure COVID requirements?

    I need to look for a quotable source, but my recollection is that France's requirement is now for a 7-day quarantine after a positive test result, not a 14-day requirement.
