COVID-19 RULES IN PARADISE

 

Me jogging in our tiny front garden!

The Covid-19 rules in The Bahamas are always changing back and forwards under the Executive Orders that are imposed by the "Competent Authority", aka our Prime Minister. And every time it's announced that the PM is going to give an address, we all quiver in our shoes! There's panic at the food stores as people are thrown into fear that we might have another lock down.

Fortunately, it looks as though complete lock downs are on hold for now (and I hope they'll never come about), but there's always the possibility of some form of shut down if Covid-19 cases don't level off.

Right now on New Providence the only time we can exercise at any hour (except for the 10 p.m. - 5 a.m. curfew) is in our own "yards"! We are allowed to exercise in our "immediate neighbourhood" from 5 a.m. - 9 a.m. and go to the beaches and parks then, but I'm not an early bird!

Longing for freedom and long walks.
