La Altagracia is where Punta Cana, the largest vacation destination of the Caribbean is located. The Abinader administration has announced that provinces where 70% of the population is vaccinated with a second dose could be relieved from opening hour restrictions.

No All-Incl are not allowed to leave the property.... during curfew, i expect... a curfew of sorts

Since you are glad to see tourism rebound do you really think that the vaccine rollout had nothing to do with this? You can't have it both ways.....................................

I am absolutely shocked!
Who would have thought with only a few (potential hundreds of) million tourism

Sure I can have it both ways. I'm not vaxd and have no intention of doing so. If others choose to relax the curfew that is their decision, not mine.

Made up numbers, but go ahead and reopen.

It is past due to reopen any way since anyone that wanted a vaccination could easily have gotten them.

So all will be open. But you still have to still have to wear a mask? Ambiguous. Typical.

"Asimismo, manifestó que la población debe aprender a convivir con el Covid y seguir protegiéndose con la vacuna hasta llegar al por ciento más alto, y sobretodo seguir manteniendo los protocolos de seguridad."

He also stated that the population must learn to live with Covid and continue to protect themselves with the vaccine until reaching the highest percent, and above all continue to maintain safety protocols.
