That sure was a quick change of mind. It was just posted earlier that the toque de queda would stay the same:

I heard there is a rumor they might change the curfew to 1pm instead of 9pm but only for 15 days. If this is true, how it will impact DR and the tourism? I wonder

1pm? There's never been a curfew that early and things are getting better. And the curfew now starts at 10pm. Sounds like another barrio Fayboo rumor to me.

My kid heard the same thing here in BC. No announcement yet.

No offence, but if your kid heard it, you can be sure it's a bogus rumor. Last week the rumor in the barrio was the curfew was going to be dropped completely.

I have a good source for information here in Santiago and the only thing I've heard recently is they will be keeping the curfew in place until they can implement the police reform. I'm not saying they can't change it should they choose too but I've been told it's more about preventing crime than saving lives at this point.

FWIW, I just found out that the same rumor is going around in the Callejon and other barrios in Cabarete, also. I sure hope this one is false like all the others I've heard so far. Doing this for 15 days will accomplish nothing,.

If the government is really concerned about Covid cases increasing, maybe it's about time they started requiring passengers coming to the DR to have a negative Covid test for entry. Should have done that a long time ago IMO.

When you hear the rumor, always try to find where it comes from.

In this case, it's the article in Listin Diario, here's the link: https://listindiario.com/la-republi...ue-de-queda-desde-100-de-la-tarde-por-15-dias

This is just a suggestion by some epidemiologist, but you know, these days any idiot can email his thoughts to newspapers and they print it.

There's a difference between that they might want to implement the police reform and that they actually can do it. Police reform will never happen in DR, unless they import the whole police force from another country.

I hope someone checks Mr.Feliz Cuello real soon and tells him to zip it.

Makes sense. The fear mongers are only saying the same things they always say... yawn.

Besides, these children deserve a future and have a right to a proper education regardless of who dies in the process.

Well, then let them shut down Santo Domingo and leave the rest of us alone.
Yes -
They need to concentrate their efforts there..... where it does the most good

The 1pm curfew idea (above) is b/c of the hospital congestion in greater SD
Not the whole country

What children, what education, what future, man, what are you talking about? After these children spend so much time in the sun and in their crappy houses without a/c, they already have some kind of porridge instead of the brain in their heads. Education won't help them. There's no future for them. Anyway, we go off topic here.

I agree on this one. :cool:
