That's why I double-checked. There were a lot of rumors about a lot of things flying around yesterday and I found myself quite busy just desmintiendo chismes. I've never known you to be chismoso, and your reputation remains intact, Dave. ;-)

It pretty much means we don't want tourists on our beaches.

The government is correctly trying to shut down Semana Santa because there are going to be folks who refuse to obey the request to stay at home. Some will have been paying into a tanda for months for their vacation and they will be rightfully reluctant to lose that money if the charter bus and tour services won't refund their money or allow them to reschedule. Same goes with flights. We had family members insist on coming here at the beginning of the last month against all recommendations and now they find themselves without a flight home. Flights are being cancelled without prior warning, which might help prevent some people from coming here for the time being, but it also means others are going to be stuck here.

Not much we can do about the folks coming here in private vehicles. But there won't be much for them to do.

Please allow me to clarify.

Re:
"Come on, amigo. Use your common sense and think about what we are all supposedly trying to prevent. That doesn't mean you should be justified strolling on the beach because you aren't a tourist. Everyone should respect the spirit in which this rule is being made."

1. I am NOT referring to myself specifically.

The reason I created the post was due to the specific wording in your post--->
...." It pretty much means we don't want tourists on our beaches."....

That wording could have possibly been misinterpreted by some as prejudice against "tourists", get it now?

I.M.O., a more appropriate wording would have used the word "PEOPLE " instead of specifying "tourists" as You did.

When I noted "locals", the reference is to exactly that, the local population as a whole, NOT me personally.
Furthermore, due to a skin cancer issue, I don't even GO the the beach! So you will not find me there.

2. I have a University degree in Health Science.
I know exactly what "we are all supposedly trying to prevent ".
I am 110% aware of the "spirit" of the Playas Cerradas order issued.
And, I am the FIRST PERSON to RESPECT IT.

excerpt from post---->

...... " It pretty much means we don't want tourists on our beaches. "

Exuse me Z Rob, I'm a little confused.....

Does the order apply only to "tourists" or is it for everyone?
Please clarify this detail, if you know.

Saludos.

What is sad is the people won't do the distance and having groups. In a small county here in Kentucky, we had a increase yesterday in cases. Most of them were in surrounding counties where a Church had a Revival and after the Revival some of the ones in attendance came down with the virus. I know Religion is a major part of a lot of peoples lives- but we have to put on hold till this is over. Kathie is having problems with not being able to meet with her Church Lady Friends- they wanted to meet today and stay at a distance and do take out and I was against it for they were going to meet at distance at a pavilion but the city closed it.

We have found that because it is very important to meet with and check in with our friends that we have specific times that we have virtual meetings on Zoom. It works quite well. It is also available internationally.

Tell the ladies to look into zoom or one of the other programs available to help groups meet online.

They are just like so many other people, they need that personal contact. We sell Avon, one of our Customers works at the Post Office sorting facility in Lexington and had a order to be picked up from us. She called and said to leave her order on our steps and she would put the money in the mail box. She said she can not be closer than 6ft from anyone. She was thankful that her husband(electrician) just took a job in Atlanta at a nuclear facility for now. Her son is living in his travel trailer parked next to his house because someone at his job tested positive and was afraid of a member of the family may get the virus. What this virus is doing to everyone is so on real with no true end in sight.
