Wasn’t the paper chits just to secure their money easier? Also if you weren’t a big drinker you would always end up with extra chits

I think even after Imbert rest the pipe on allyuh on budget day that Trinis should use the money they were going to find to pay for their Carnival costume constructively.

If the trials run good and we manage to get enough vaccinations in place, maybe they could get a corbeau sweat carnival in Summer. That's pretty optimistic still.

I've made clear many times that Carnival in February 2021 isn't possible. However, if we get the vaccines around Feb-Mar and vaccinate the most vulnerable there's no reason we can't have a later 2021 Carnival. We'd be stupid not too.

U r getting carnival. Ur numbers WILL be low, and ur vaccines will be in full swing.
So, u WILL get ur carnival. The people will sing 'Gr8 iz d pnm, Rowley save carnival' u can't give up dat opportunity.

But, it would not be WISE to hold it.

Honestly don't see anything close to "normal" happening until maybe this time next year (Oct 2021), after everyone is vaccinated, etc. So carnival probably most likely out for 2021. Probably even "normal" schooling etc.

2020 and most of 2021 out.

Given that ^^, the question is... which carnival businesses will survive until 2021/22? And how?

This isn't necessary in my opinion, living more normally with the virus is needed otherwise you're looking at an economic collapse, severe ill effects on poorer kids and a retraction in what was a booming Carnival industry.

Most big bands will survive, Entice/Fantasy already called it quits even before Covid.

What I'm worried about is the rest of the Caribbean stealing our Carnival crowds. Already in my wrap WhatsApp groups people planning to hit Jamaica Carnival in April.

When I say live with the virus we need to create a society and system that protects the vulnerable. Be smart about things. Bars and fees fetes can freely take place but party goers need to avoid vulnerable folks for 2 weeks. Teachers, restaurant, bar and fete workers should be under 60 and not have any co-morbities. Those that do should be given unemployment benefits until vaccinated.

I don't see why everything has to be shut down for a virus that 99.9% of the young and healthy will survive.

the problem is their a LOT of ppl who not young & healthy- yes many young but certainly not healthy. u see d graph where men in dey 40s and even 30s died? and many more who survived but now have to live with long term health problems. it not just a matter of who will die.

we also can't isolate vulnerable ppl when some of those same young ppl live with their older vulnerable parents, and some older vulnerable ppl are still working (50s and maybe early 60s)

everything is not shutdown. but we can't expect a full back to normal especially if it means a thousands of ppl playin mas- because covid will play mas on us 2 weeks after- so even if we came out of community spread before we will go right back and then we back to shutting down bars/dining in etc. like now which will cause those sectors of the economy to suffer.

those other countries who going ahead with carnival- just watch what happens afterwards. there is life to be lived after carnival u know.

Yes I agree, that's why to young people who live with older vulnerable persons should not partake in these things. And if they are stay somewhere else for that time.

Btw I'm not advocating for Carnival in Feb 2021, I'm saying we need to find a way first to live with the virus and ease into these things slowly. Then, only then we announce a carnival date. Assuming it can be safely held anywhere from April to Aug.
