Part 1: It looks like the DR will not reopen to tourism on 1 July



On its website, the Ministry of Tourism says that the tourism sector is readying the safety protocols for hotels, restaurants, excursions, theme park operation, ranches, maritime transport and aquatic activities. The Institute of Civil Aviation has prepared the protocol for the restart of airports and commercial aviation.



As part of the phased reopening plan, the tourism industry is scheduled to reopen on 1 July 2020. Nevertheless, one week before the opening, the government still has not published the protocols and the airports and airlines have not yet been notified of the opening. The government still maintains the opening as a possibility, but necessary steps to make it a reality are not being taken.



Instead, the Ministry of...

That is what Canada and other countries are doing -- Bahamas too, I think

The family member issue is a big one - at least for me....

It would be fair. And the legal residents obviously and that is easy to manage for immigration or should be. Family members and property owners would be fair to but requires validating documents. Maybe its just easier to open borders as not many will come here anyway.

Mr. Rey, you have made this assertion several times. Without naming specific names, who are these persons making such claims, and within what region? Are these barrio, municipal or provincial types?
I have not heard of any such information along the south eastern tier of the RD.

Mr. ww, why am I not surprised that you would be in the middle of some unsubstantiated chatter?
Perhaps I need to purchase some cotton swabs, because I am not hearing such things.

Here is a very interesting but not surprising article:

The gist of it is that Public Heath admits that 40.74% of "supposed" Wuhan Virus deaths are "probably" from the virus. Median age 65 and almost a third had high blood pressure and 23+ % diabetic. -

On closing down again after elections I first heard that from my girlfriend, who is a business owner and she heard it from another business owner here in POP. I really hope it is a stupid rumor.

He are the protocols as I see it:
1. Tape boxes on the floor where you can and cannot stand or sit. So tape is a good business to be in. Think about how quickly all this tape will become dirty and tattered.

2. Masks of course as we all know.

3. Door handles frequently spritzed and wiped with a vinnegar/water or amonia/water solution.

4. Spritz down all luggage.

5. Maybe a spritz or two on each individual.

6. Occupancy limits.

7. PPE on employees and food handlers.

8. Temperature checks.

There will be protocols for conglomeration of people and groups.

If some type of health document is required this will certainly put a damper on things.

Written protocals on if people show symptoms.

Continued rolling curfews.

It's going to be a big spritz/tape fest. There will be more.

So buy stock in tape, spritz bottles and vinnegar🤣
This čomes as no surprise.

100% my thought regardless of who wins or even if they have said elections.

Quote I read, and responded to---- see below

I have heard rumors of even more strict curfews..... and closures

The 2nd knee jerk is always worse

Have I got some sort of Bullseye painted on my forehead that would attract you to target me ??

I was agreeing with an earlier post


Oh Wait !!!
you're one of those who doesn't scroll back...

how very 'Au Courant'

I appreciate your interest in my life

Perhaps you should step out a bit more - catch the drift -

I and perhaps Cristo may take bets on a 'belt tightening'

Me ???
I'm heading for the hills - making a break for it - jumping ship...... July 3rd
