Dozens and dozens of Flights inbound from Infested Florida and All my exes live in Texas. I'm sure that didn't help

Let us know when the numbers of people arriving on airplanes with COVID are available. That's the only way to know how serious the problem is.

I don't know about the dozens of flights inbound from Florida and Texas. But, there are many people not from US here in Punta Cana. Not from Texas or Florida. And, they are not wearing masks. I would be more concerned about them. Some are from Spain. I don't ask the other ones. I avoid them like the virus. As always :ROFLMAO: I have said, I am no fan of renters.

There are not that many tourists here at the moment. More from other countries than US, based on my unscientific observations. When I go out. The only people I spoke to today are Dominican.
