Note that these are the numbers since Friday, since the government didn't release numbers yesterday...

Since Friday, there have been 91 people (90 residents and 1 visitor) who have tested positive, and 111 who have been marked "recovered". There are now a total of 1,289 active cases.

There were 681 tests done since Friday, 407 residents and 274 visitors at the airport.

In the hospital, there are now 34 people in the "Covid ward", and 9 in ICU.


The new curfew started last night, with all businesses (including restaurants, bars, and casinos) that are NOT in hotels required to be closed by 9pm, and everyone required to be off the streets from 10pm until 5am. Hotel guests on hotel property are not required to be in their rooms, nor are the restaurants/bars/casinos in the hotels required to be closed.

On Palm Beach, a number of restaurants closed last night at 6pm in protest of the "double standard" rules; they have reopened today, and will be open this evening, with the expectation that negotiations with the government (scheduled for tomorrow) may result in the resumption of the previous closing time (10pm, with curfew at midnight).
