    It appears that all the tests taken before passengers arrive at Dominica are not working.
    The first person to arrive in Dom. had taken at least 3 tests before arriving, and then was checked at the airport and passed. He then became ill and has possibly made others sick as well. I think Dominica and the rest of the world should communicate with each other to formulate the same plan for all countries. It appears that my comment cannot be used as Comments have stopped to stop spam……HA,HA,HA.

    We need the front line workers to keep on top of this pandemic. Do not cut any corners or do anything to compromise the rest of us who live here.
