My friend boasting on a group chat that since March, she has only worked 31 days! Averaging 5 to 6 days a month, and she is collecting full pay (17k after-tax).

She is a highly paid worker at a state company, however, that company has no remote work policy so when they home, they ain't working. Not even a phone call coming to them.

She said she has 14 days sick and 14 days casual so it's within her right to stay home Tuesdays and Thursdays when her roster is scheduled, giving her a full week off. Often when she has has the M-W-F rotation she'll stay home Mon or Fri.

She and many people like her are gaming this system, taking exorbitant day-offs to get full weeks off. She said everyone at her company is doing it, also because they have very little work too.

I blame them yes, but in what day and age can office workers not work from home? They've known about this pandemic since March.


In America, they have the American Dream. Work hard, become successful, enjoy life.

Here in Trinidad, we have a dream too. That lady is living the Trinidadian dream.

I don't know why people expect covid to spread much on the beach.....it will only spread if you intermingling with others (who not in your group) closely on the beach. How many people do that? Not many at all, people typically go in small groups and family limes.

As far as socializing goes, liming with your partners in the beach is far safer than going over to their house.

Our dumbass govt keep copying other countries and their restrictions. We Trinis don't use the beach like those whites in Miami and California. We go to the beach and stay in isolated groups of family members and friends. If anything the risk of catching COVID on the beach is much less than in an office...

Exactly, UK government encouraging people (because they know they can't stop socializing outright) if they have to meet up, try meeting up in parks (or beaches when it was summer) or outdoors.

But no, our unoriginal government will force people to wear masks when walking around the Savannah rather than in offices.

agree with this.

outside is much better than inside. Look at how bars operating for months now and the numbers still low and manageable.

This beach thing... the media need to stop operating like Maracas is the only beach in the country. Plenty beaches all over the two islands empty and never see the crowds that Maracas does have.

Hello DPD,

Hope you are healthy and safe my good lad.

This is very true, and you could not have said it any better.

However, another concern that we must be wary of is the increased commuting on the roads due to the beaches now open.

Let us all note that there will be more ppl bar hopping and spreading germs on the bar counters and washrooms etc.

Nevertheless, there will intermingling especially with the younger generation. Trinis havent seen other Trinis in a while at the beach whether it’s family, friend or “kinda knows” and everything is a lime and a rum does kill everything attitude.

Any place that encourages the consumption of alcohol and congregation is a potential safety hazard as it physically and mentally impairs those participating, thus increasing the possibility of reduced precautionary hygiene measures.

Remember, all they need is one jackass to start a spread, unfortunately there will be many of them.

We will see how this goes.

old saying is you can lead a horse to water but cyah make he drink seems perfect here. the govt can open all the cinema and beach and rum shop they want but is up to people who duz feel they smart and right thinking not to go out an mingle in public. work, food run (grocery market etc) and home until they find a vaccine. everyone duz feel they smart and they know what they doing and nobody cyah tell dem nutting is the biggest jack as around.
it important to derick chin, abouds, sabgas to open they resturant, bars, business, they have a right, they invest a lot to make money but who say we hadda be dotish and go and put yuh life in risk. allyuh doh have bbc and cnn at home ah wah?

so when all them social distancing every man walking with they own bottle ah rum and bowl ah ice? everyone touching up the bottle and pushing hand in the ice and spreading the covid. the pm and cmo say social distancing not physical distancing meaning it not only important to stay away from each other it means to stay away from everybody socially as well. means doh hug nobody, no bonks, no phone calls, no nutting, no liming be socially distant and stay by yuh self and duck everybody. physical distance means we sit six feet apart and be socially close drinking we run, chatting etc, but social distancing means nobody aint seeing or hearing from me until they find a vaccine.

No vaccine looking anytime soon so let the PM get some courage that he is supposedly lacking and let everyone run free. Maintain social distancing and masks and whatever happens happens .people just want a chance to see versus looking at other places experiences

an average department is the service or regular offices are 10 - 15 persons, all of which interacting with other people in other departments. all these people come from different areas and circumstances so even with out access to the public the issues are still there.

btw approx. 100- 120 persons per floor.

u should expect a small bump in cases in the next two weeks. once the beach bandwagon die off, u should expect that bump do die down.

bad thing is, once that small beach bump should trickle off, u will get ur christmas bump, and that will show up end of december up till end of janurary as the cases come in. and i hope they dont use that as an excuse to close back beach.

I think that's an underestimate.....it doesn't factor in the extra socializing that will take place over the next 2 months.

225 cases PER DAY ? how they come up with that? cuz like the no of confirmed cases now is around 30-40. is it that asymptomatic cases are like 6 times symptomatic?

it cud be that due to cloth masks which are not as effective in protecting the wearer from infection as n95 ones ppl are getting infected but with a low viral dose.
