    Timing is everything LOL

    Okay folks . Let’s put aside our political opinions and do the right thing in the name of safety.

    Unfortunately. DeSilva and Caines and many others that night acted fooishly and have had to pay the price. Let’s not be ignorant and make things difficult ….just because . The price we pay may be our lives, or grannies, or dads, and so on.

    Let’s keep it together. One Love

  4. Hmmm says:

    Can the police elaborate on the consequences of having a gathering of greater than 50 people or breaking any other of the distancing/mask rules?

    Asking for a couple of friends.

    This is approaching the absurd. Enough controlling . Enough heavy handed regulations. This entire issue is beginning to smell like something more.
    Enough is enough.
    Let the island open up and return to some level of normalcy.

      I guess you haven’t been tuning it to what’s been happening in Florida and Texas.

        I am well in tune. Remember, our goal was to “flatten the curve”
        We could see “ 850 deaths or a better case scenario of 270 dead” David Burt, Premier
        We have 9.
        We cannot have our hospital overrun and cripple
        Our health system.
        Done. We have zero
        In the hospital
        This virus will be with us for many many months and conceivably, years. We need to learn how to safely
        Live with it.
        Our elders and those with underlying medical conditions should,
        Quite rightly, be sheltered and segregated from the east of us. The rest of the population, now that we fully understand the low
        Death rate that is less than the flu for our healthy under “60’s”, should get back to their normal lives and open the island fully
        now. Fear is a debilitating disease in and of itself. Sad that it dragged down so many of us . Enough already.
