    I read that in DR News.  That is the kiss of death for the tourist industry, but illustrates the seriousness of the situation.
    it is going to hurt lots and lots of people.  just consider the people we come across day to day on a trip we make to the DR , from the lady that cleans our room , the cook that makes our breakfast to the chicas who many not only support themselves but extended family as well.  the planes stop delivering us guys and our wallets.

    i honestly dont know if anybody in the DR totally understands the importance and affect of the tourist has on the local economy down there.

  • has anybody heard what is going on people wise since the prez of the DR shut their borders tomorrow morning?  it has had to clear everybody out, i would think.

    from what i read in a letter the prez posted, nobody coming in except for nationals returning home, ferry planes to pick americans/canadians wanting to get home and those flights bringing in necessary supplies

    they also are shuttering business's much like we are seeing stateside, carryout food only, no bars, etc...

    this has to clear the streets, hotels, etc...

    anybody have any word from feet on the ground?

  • Saw an Instagram post that Oasis is on reduced hours with 50% staff (whatever that means).

    Local friend says she may be getting a 30 day furlough.  She works at Lifestyles.  Not sure if this means they are closing but if no flights are allowed in they won't have any guests.

  • It is looking like the 4th of July travel activities may be affected too if America hasn't peaked in cases and deaths by the end of May.

    (The fun countries may extend their border closures to Americans)
     Colombia closed until AT LEAST May 30.

  • email i just got as i suspect the rest of you got as well:

    Ahoy Pirates, You can run but not hide

    Unfortunately, the damn corona virus caught up with us in spite of numerous ship headings…lemon consumption, and many barrels of rum....plus the government telling us that we had to shut down like it or not.
     
    True story. We had three customers here who wanted to stay for an extra five days; with no employees! They even offered to go to the local supermarket to buy all the food and beverage that they needed. I had to pleasantly decline, in spite of a lot of begging.
     
    Here is the deal with the government regarding the hotel closure. We have been asked to close effective March 19th until at least April 1st. In the meantime all reservations during this period will be cancelled with no penalty. After April 1st it will be a wait and see situation.
     
    For future reservations and availability requests please keep in touch with us by emailing us at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. We plan to reply every few days.

    From all of us at BlackBeards we wish you the best of luck during these historically difficult times.

    We look forward to seeing all of you safe and sound after the storm.
     


    “One Visit And You Will Be Hooked!!”


     Gracias, El Capitan

    Regards,

  • Mildre tells me that Puerto Plata is like a ghost town.  Everything is shut down.  She tells me the hospital is overflowing with people with respiratory problems waiting to be tested.  As she says in her wonderfully descriptive English, "It is no good"

  • i would think there would be a fair amount of people out and about just to grocery shop.  with the lack of utilities many live with their need to shop is almost daily.  are they allowed out to shop for food?

    i chatted with rob from bb's before they shut down and i asked if the girls were worried, scared, anything like that.  his comment, "if they are , i sure cant tell ".  they must just be rolling with it.

  • All major grocery stores like Sirena, Jumbo and Jose Luis are shut down.  I do not know about smaller places like Jenny's.  Mildre and her family are surviving on fried chicken (from the polleria) and rice.  She went out and bought a 50 lb bag before Jose Luis shut down

    I'm surprised they would close the grocery stores, that's not typical of this pandemic. I'm in California and we're basically on lockdown but at least the grocery stores are open.

    I'm concerned about the DR with this pandemic. Public medical care in the DR is shit, let's be honest. Yes, there are some private clinics but your average Dominican can't afford that. If people start showing up with symptoms it's going to tear the country apart. The lack of respirators, masks, gloves, ELECTRICITY, beds, etc. are all going to pose serious problems. This is a 3rd world country. It isn't ready and sadly, many will suffer. Meanwhile, folks are hanging out in colmados ignorantly passing the virus along then going home to their families. Dominicans believe in magic, miracles and religious fairy tales that have no basis in science or reality. So far, this virus gives fuck all about what you believe or how much money is in your pocket. If you're human; it hates you.

    i agree with you on the grocery store thing jett.  with the lack of electricity in a lot of areas it takes multiple trips per week to the store to source food IF they will have the money not being able to work or hustle.

    tourism is major money for the north coast and that flow of money has been majorly restricted.  there are still the retiree's and ex pats down there who funnel money in but that is not enough to keep things moving.

    this is super serious for the dominicans, not to mention, their favorite past time is drinking and they will figure that out and what little money they do have will be squandered and when the money is gone and people are drunk...

    A friend of my brother has been in CR since early January.  Says he's coming back to NJ tomorrow.  Don't know how. I thought most flights were cancelled to and from CR. In fact I read that Guatamala was air lifting some of their citizens before CR closed their borders last week.

  • Ralphie said of the Dominicans, "Their favorite pastime is drinking".  Two bits of news from DR today.

    1) Brugal distillery has shut down putting 900 out of work.
    2) The government passed an edict forbidding colmados from selling beer.  The minister in charge of this said, colmados were exempt from the law shutting the big stores down so they could provide food.  Beer is not a food.

  • An observation.  In DR this was an illness of the rich and the tourists.

    Up to a week ago had 21 cases.  20 were tourists who brought it with them, primarily Americans, French and Italians.  There was one Dominican woman who was presumed to have caught it from one of the tourists.  However she was seen out shopping having been told to quarantine herself for 14 days.  Her name has never been published to my knowledge, but she must be recognizable to people on the street, therefore TV personality?  It turned out she had been on a vacation to Spain where she caught it.  Therefore rich.

     A week ago 16 Dominicans were dropped off by a Costa Lines cruise.  DR was a regular port of call.  The ship is riddled with conavid-19.  DR took its own, but refused to allow the rest to land.  It is now looking for a place to drop off its infected passengers.  If you are Dominican and can afford to go on a cruise, you are relatively rich.

    The final nail against the rich came on the week end of 14/15 March when a high society wedding was held at a resort in Punta Cana.  All the rich and famous of DR were there.  The government had already banned large gatherings but the organizers must have felt sufficiently close to the government to proceed.  A week later people attending the event started to fall ill.  Last Saturday 90 people were declared infected and the number is increasing every day.  The total number in DR is now over 600 including the Foreign Minister who was at the wedding.

    It is a total mess.

    But of course all those rich people are now infecting their cooks, gardeners and cleaners.  They continue to drive around with entitlement.

    The President is said to be "madder than hell" was not at the wedding.  Was he not invited or did he choose not to go?  The next day he introduced quite draconian measures to try to control the spread of the disease.  One of these aimed at the rich is the introduction of the curfew.  If you are out between the hours of 8 pm and 6 am you are consigned to jail for 48 hours.  If you are in a car, your car is impounded for 14 days.  To get it back you have to pay the towing fee, a storage charge and an administrative charge plus the usual 18% tax.

    Life in DR

    An observation.  In DR this was an illness of the rich and the tourists.

    Up to a week ago had 21 cases.  20 were tourists who brought it with them, primarily Americans, French and Italians.  There was one Dominican woman who was presumed to have caught it from one of the tourists.  However she was seen out shopping having been told to quarantine herself for 14 days.  Her name has never been published to my knowledge, but she must be recognizable to people on the street, therefore TV personality?  It turned out she had been on a vacation to Spain where she caught it.  Therefore rich.

     A week ago 16 Dominicans were dropped off by a Costa Lines cruise.  DR was a regular port of call.  The ship is riddled with conavid-19.  DR took its own, but refused to allow the rest to land.  It is now looking for a place to drop off its infected passengers.  If you are Dominican and can afford to go on a cruise, you are relatively rich.

    The final nail against the rich came on the week end of 14/15 March when a high society wedding was held at a resort in Punta Cana.  All the rich and famous of DR were there.  The government had already banned large gatherings but the organizers must have felt sufficiently close to the government to proceed.  A week later people attending the event started to fall ill.  Last Saturday 90 people were declared infected and the number is increasing every day.  The total number in DR is now over 600 including the Foreign Minister who was at the wedding.

    It is a total mess.

    But of course all those rich people are now infecting their cooks, gardeners and cleaners.  They continue to drive around with entitlement.

    The President is said to be "madder than hell" was not at the wedding.  Was he not invited or did he choose not to go?  The next day he introduced quite draconian measures to try to control the spread of the disease.  One of these aimed at the rich is the introduction of the curfew.  If you are out between the hours of 8 pm and 6 am you are consigned to jail for 48 hours.  If you are in a car, your car is impounded for 14 days.  To get it back you have to pay the towing fee, a storage charge and an administrative charge plus the usual 18% tax.

    Life in DR

    Good post.

    Recently a rather popular Youtuber who covers the north coast called this pandemic a scam. "Scamdemic" was the phrase he coined. He entertains international conspiracy theories and went so far as to say that since he's seen no dead bodies, this whole thing is concocted by the government elites. I wrote a brief comment on his video and stated my displeasure that he of all people should take this seriously especially as it concerns the good people of the DR. The medical staff throughout the country don't give a rat's ass where this virus came from, who brought it here or any other peripheral issue. The fact is is that the plague has come to the DR and there will be many who will suffer. The clinics and hospitals can easily be overrun by sick/dying patients. How many ventilators does the average public clinic/hospital have in the DR? My guess is very, very few. The condition of many of these medical facilities is piss poor as it is. One can get better equipment and service at private hospitals but I can promise you only the wealthy/well connected can afford to go there. Even then, there's no promise that there's enough equipment to handle so many sick.That's going to be a huge problem.

    Italy is a first world country with a modern, clean and serviceable health care system. They've decided that anyone 80+ who contracts the virus shall be left to die. At this very moment there are tens of thousands infected with the virus in NY.  There aren't enough beds to handle the number of infected. Doctors are making the call on site as to whether a man gets treatment or dies. The DR is a small island nation with approximately 10 million people and just a few major cities. Dominicans are a sociable people. If this virus takes off it will be catastrophic.

    This shit is real.
