    Re: Any news on re-opening

    I wouldn't put that tombstone in your garden quite yet, 8 members of the NY Yankees organization who are vaccinated (J&J) now have Covid, and there were 64 cases in St Martin just last week, with no test required to come to SBH on the ferry... masks still required for flying, trains, buses, etc... are we totally out of the woods?

    I have seen photos of people masked for that Spanish flu era, Dianna.

    the anti-maskers might not have worn them, but there were mask regulations and plenty of people did wear them....

    And then there is India, Africa and many other countries that are inundated with infection and death. Most don’t believe this one will every truly go away. I expect booster shots for years and years.

    of course they wore masks back then, but it was not strictly enforced like it is now. looks like the cdc is saying most places if they wish can stop enforcing the masks. such as outside etc. a lot of states have already adopted the mask free status. I will be going to the states next week, it will be nice to see things there returning to a more normal state. I believe they are saying vaccinated people can now remove their masks outdoors and indoors in some places. I wonder if they will carry vaxx cards with them.

    "With all we did"?!? HAHAHAHAHHA! Ignoring it, denying it and calling it a hoax for the better part of a year might have something to do with the timeline.

    Covid-19 cases are decreasing in the United States, and masks are no longer required everywhere, but the pandemic is not over — and won’t be until younger children can also be vaccinated, epidemiologists said in a new survey by The New York Times.

    The true end of the pandemic — when it becomes safer to return to most activities without precautions — will arrive once at least 70 percent of Americans of all ages are vaccinated, they said. Adolescents just began receiving vaccines this week, and those for children younger than 12 are not yet approved.
    “Children are key to ending the pandemic,” said David Celentano, the chair of epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University and one of the 723 epidemiologists who participated in the survey this month.
    They are optimistic this will happen, even if not as quickly as many Americans hope. In five years, they expect Covid-19 will be more like the flu, circulating at a lower rate and with some deaths every year — but no longer a public health crisis necessitating lockdowns.

    Went to the Amish market this morning. All the help were maskless for the first time (do they know who the CDC is?). All customers wore masks. I think the Amish are anti-vax too but reached herd immunity the hard way here without vaccine.

    Re: As of June 9th, new process for arrivals to the island of Saint Barth

    So am i mistaken that the Vaccine requirement is similar enforcement to Las Vegas casino's requiring you to be vaccinated to go mask-less ?

    I'm not sure of the Vegas requirement but I read it as you will not be allowed entry to SBH if not vaccinated (at least until it changes again?)

    You are not allowed to enter a Vegas casino without a mask (or any other store in America unless you are vaccinated). If you are vaccinated you can do all of those things legally.
