Maybe locals don't want to be locked down again. Lock down in DR is no joke. Gringo's in US and other places had a paid vacation with their lock down. Gringo's cry about masks and quarantines. How would you like to be rounded up on the streets if out past curfew? How would you like to be out of a job without financial help? Lock down in DR means what it say's and gringos are too weak to handle that. But that's why DR had very low COVID infections and that's why locals feel uneasy about easy entry rules.
