Just got back from a Farmacia. Open as usual. Go out of your cave and check for yourself. OPEN to walk in and get whatever you need. I asked about not letting people in and she looked at me like I was from Mars.What does being open yesterday have to do with the new regulations that run from today, January 1 until January 10?
Please pay attention to the regulations and dates upon which they apply.
NOTHING EVER SAID FARMACIAS WOULD BE CLOSED!!! JUST THAT THEY WOULD BE DELVERY ONLY> people to have a tough time with understanding the concept of "delivery only".
Now if if tell me you can walk in to your farmacia today, I would suggest they are violating the new regulations, but I guess that is just me.
Getting back AI tourists. AI tourists are the focus. The DR government is all about AI tourism at this time.All the adjustments like this new curfew, could be considered window dressing... when the real problem is to get back the tourists... the reason the DR has a level 3 travel warning from the USA was stated by the state department as 2 problems..Covid increase, and a increase in crime.... cant remember them talking about lowering crime...
Sounds like a perfect example of the farmacia owners lack of comprehension of the new regulations from today until January 10.Just got back from a Farmacia. Open as usual. Go out of your cave and check for yourself. OPEN to walk in and get whatever you need. I asked about not letting people in and she looked at me like I was from Mars.

The curfews cut back on crime without talking about crime.
Thanks for asking those questions. So, these farmacias don't care what the government regulations are, they will do what they want.I had to go to Wecare Pharmacy today, so I asked. They will be open for customers as usual next week. Next I went to Super Pola and stopped by CarolRx and asked. They are going to be open next week for customers as usual, also.
Let us see how many are arrested starting at one minute after noon onward for the next two weekends.Understand and agree on the crime thing. But noon on weekends? It makes so little sense. My only guess is that they say noon and are hoping for 5PM compliance. That's strictly a guess.
If you can prove it is an emergency trip to the farmacia, ($500RD) should cover it.When you say "as usual" does that mean with usual hours, or as usual but reduced curfew hours.
Because I think a big concern is that if you need grocery or pharmacy after noon on weekends (a completely reasonable expectation), then you'll have trouble.
The government has threatened the curfews will be even worse if people don't obey over the next 10 days.Do you think that these more strict rules of the curfew might be prolonged after 10.1. ? Or is it more like something "special" related to the New Year celebrations ?
Bought flights from Europe on 14.1. and currently wondering if to cancel or not to cancel... Under such circumstances (curfew from 12:00 & 17:00), the trip does not make much sense.
It is, You and Andrea have a safe trip back to and for living back in Canada after your stay in the DR ends.It’s quite the curfew...
The curfew is about crime reduction (and giving the appearance that something is being done about CV19).Do they have any evidence period that closing at noon helps anything? In NY, we would call this evidence, 70% of spread comes from being confined with someone who has it. 2% for bars and restaurants
Why would a forum change course like that? I see no reason.It hurts their ego just as it hurts the feeling of a someone. Good news is that the shift change is coming, after which hopefully this forum, will swerve towards proven scientific findings discussing the DR issues, rather than opinion engendered by tweeter storms.
We should know by next weekend - Friday or so - if the case numbers drop
whether the curfew is working
