First, COVID-19 remains a very real threat to your health and our healthcare system. The protocols are basic – wash hands, wear your mask in public and social distance when in public. And get vaccinated. 

Getting the vaccine does not mean Covid-19 will go away. Remember India – they produced the vaccine and were distributing it globally but ignoring the basic protocols. Now their healthcare system is broken and many are dying daily, overwhelming crematoriums.  The world cannot afford another India.

Don’t give up the mask! Please. And please note that J. E. Bergasse has a bleach-free anti-bacterial disinfectant!

 Cricket is back, for now -and it is LIVE on Calabash TV daily. All matches start from 11:30 am and repeated at 8:30p on FLOW channel 110 [cable]. The final of the Dream 11 St. Lucia T10 Blast takes place on Friday.
