    Well the big fear of mine has happened. Gov Cuomo of NY, decreed that all travelers from level 2 and 3 countries will have to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. Right now, I'm awaiting a response from my company HR dept to find out if they'll allow me to work from home (I work in IT for my company) for the quarantine period... ugh! Already starting to research other travel options (any countries not level 2 or 3)....

    Bummer. Hope they let you work from home. I'm in IT also and we are working from home permanently.

    Man that’s a gut punch for sure!! Stay positive, you’ve still got almost two months before your trip and things will keep changing. Good luck with the work from home option!! We all need our vitamin D!!

    Well in 2 months, it's probably not getting any better (I think we're at least a year away from anything resembling normal). Besides, Jamaica is at level 3, even if they clear up covid, it'll still be level 2 by the state dept because of it's violence levels in the big cities. I got a response by my HR dept but it wasn't very clear (seems like it's ok but frowned upon, which is a lil nerve racking in a company where I've survived 2 layoffs since covid). If after some clarification, I'm still getting a negative vibe, I'll probably cancel (I wonder if White Sands will refund me? If American airlines will let me retain my flight as a a future credit and for how long?). I've also got a Feb trip booked and I'll wait for a bit before I decide on that trip.

    Oh yeah, I saw that report on the super computer study on covid patients and the positive affects of vitamin D to fight Covid if you get it!!!

    Yep and I was looking forward to meeting you folks. I've since found and booked a condo in St. Thomas for a shorter trip then (hopefully the US Virgin Islands can stay off of Cuomo's list but I'll definitely miss all my friends in Jamaica). White Sands is keeping my money but applying it to my Feb trip and I used the canceled flight credits for the trip to St. Thomas.
