  2. I traveled to Plaza Extra East yesterday.
    The assigned employee located at the door scanned the required thermal reading. I asked her what if read; “ She said 87”… I looked at her in shock. Asked the young lady to scan be again.. she did; it read the same.. as I was waiting for the second results… at least a dozen customers passed without them being a thermal reading. I said if my temperature is 88*… I’m dead. I immediately informed MGMT. Was advised she had the device on reading the floor!

  3. Extending stay at home is supported by data as a wise decision.
    However data suggests a minimum of two week extension. Further, it is difficult for businesses and individuals to plan when decisions do not reflect what the data obviously points to.
    I recommend only making extensions on a two week basis.

  4. Good day
    Shutting down small business is not the fix to curving the virus and is not where the virus spreads. Small business is being slaughtered. Small business are the ones that pay gross receipt, they are the employers of the locals. In my opinion what should be done is allow the non essential business to operate at a 25% capacity. Keep bars closed. Allow restaurants to serve take outs. Impose a curfew from 8:00 pm to 6am. Hotels and Airbnb to accept essential guests. ( Emergency personal, business people, locals) keep the economy particularly running. This virus is not going anywhere it’s now part of our society. We have to live with it wash your hands, where your mask and social distance. This is the only fix.

  5. I am concern, since some agencies supervisors are not following the Stay At Home Order. Forethermore, demanding additional work, and proof at late hours.
    Please be transparent, whatsoever stay at home mean.? And to get the employees to the office they change them from non-essential to essential?
    Please, again be clear. Thank you

    I have to travel to the United States on Tuesday. Was planning to get my driver’s license renewed before leaving so that I can be legal on the road. What will be the work around that if the government is closed.

  7. Are teachers and school support staff still required to report to there perspective school.,the day that there were ask to report this week.?

  8. Unfortunately my original vacation trip in May and the rescheduled trip in September to St Thomas USVI have been cancelled due to the governor’s mandates. I do not plan to reschedule anytime soon as I do not wish to rely on the uncertainty surrounding the governor and his future stay at home orders.
