With schools reopening next week and students returning to face-to-face classes, Barbadians must appreciate that there is still a pandemic ongoing.
I understand why the authorities wish to bring a degree of normalcy to the lives of Bajans after almost three years of restrictions.
But we cannot afford to let our guard down in the haste to free up ourselves.
People are still dying. Barbadians are still dying, including the stay-at-home elderly whose younger relatives are bringing home the virus.
The decision by the Government to give us some ease, especially with the children, is not an invitation to be reckless.
