Non Essential travel is just that in my opinion. I'd rather the virus not spread without us here not having vaccines in abundance.
Hello @nerodog - how are things going in Portugal - from both the COVID and non COVID perspectives?

Its more about getting the money. During the worst of COVID you often saw businesses that generated tax revenue (alcohol, cigarettes', maryjane, casinos) remain open while other businesses get crushed.

Hello @nerodog - how are things going in Portugal - from both the COVID and non COVID perspectives?
Hello from afar... very slow going. We've been in lockdown and state of Emergency since mid January and slowly creeping out. The rollout has been too slow so how a country can reopen without the balance of vaccines spells more in the future. I'd like to visit USA this fall but not sure if I'll have both shots by then!!! Otherwise, the weather is beautiful. Lolol

People are not traveling. Staying close to home. Easter holidays were cancelled. Masks everywhere. Many small businesses like everyplace, never to reopen. Mood is of frustration mixed with hope.

Have an exchange in mid June over here and likely will have to cancel it.

I hope it gets extended through December. Lord knows visitors from the UK over run Orlando at times and I’m going in early December haha.
