    Something needs to be done about those bus drivers, conductors and sidemen who doesn’t wear masks and is all up into peoples’ faces. Talking about there’s no covid 19

      They’ve done a damn good job of taking care of u people,

    • No the election is the best call right now, get it out of the way and then concentrate on reopening school and try to control covid19. There is no vaccine for the virus so it’s best thing is to get voting on so that if there is no cure by next yr people won’t have the election to think about. Only to take care of themselves and family and keep social distancing. Big up yourself most Honorable prime minister.

    persons that are coming into the island to stay with families should stay at a Government facility for 14 days quarantine instead of going to there own home so that it does not spread
