If the blogmaster were Prime Minister of Barbados the following edict would be issued as at 6PM today:
- Effective 15 October 2021 all persons entering banks and supermarkets will be required to show proof of being vaccinated for COVID 19 as well as adhering to existing COVID 19 protocols.
- Effective 1 November 2021 all medical personnel must be vaccinated as well as to adhere to existing COVID 19 protocols.
The blogmaster is aware the legislative framework will have to be tweaked to support. To manage a public health crisis prioritizing an amendment to existing legislation should command unanimous support in parliament.
It is obvious to all Barbadians community spread of the coronavirus is out of control in Barbados, confirmed by key medical personnel on the frontline. The virus is exerting extreme pressure on healthcare services in Barbados. The mouthings of a seldom seen or heard Minister of Labour should be punished in the context of the ongoing public health crisis on a trajectory to get worse. This is no time for rh political games.
It is times like now real leaders must stand-up for the good of country..
Once you get to the realisation that it is in the water you also get to the realisation that it is the Governments around the world who are spreading the virus!!
Quite a sobering thought!!
Do they know it, or not?

I think it’s too late already to save the first part of the winter season, that is the December to January period. This government should of acted 2 weeks ago. Word from the hoteliers is that cancellations are coming in fast. The reasons being given is the high percentage of covid infections percentage wise, coupled to the fact that travellers worry that the island will be moved to red after they arrive. This would involve major additional expenses for them to then reenter the UK.
Not looking good at all for we Fx inflow in Dec and Jan.
Minister of Tourism was heard to say on the news today Barbados has received a high number of cancellation and inquiries re: hotel staff vaccination status.
Yes they uk people are saying they will not come unless they are ensured all staff are vaccinated. Its a mess unravelling this week up there. I have a friend in the industry there and he doesn’t know what will end up happening. You see booking means nothing its paid passages that count. So when you hear the politicians say ” oh the hotels report heavy bookings ” that means nothing as they have until 2 weeks before to pay for the booking to be turned into paid accommodation. Even with all that it still means nothing as the industry has mostly moved now to either 48 hour cancellation with no penalty or the more hard up players to no penalty for cancellation.
So when you here the fowls clucking about how heavy the booking is that is like a car salesman telling you how many people drive by and look at the car in the showcase.
When the dust settles the vaccine hesitant working in the hotel sector will have to reconcile putting food on the table with taking the vaccine. For some this is difficult given their fears, for others ignorance based on their news sources about covid, others principle positions.
