Thanksgiving trip to St. Thomas - should we visit?
Hi everyone, I planned well in advance a trip over Thanksgiving week to visit St. Thomas from the mainland with my family. Although we are excited for our first visit to the island, the increasing Covid lock-downs has me concerned that restaurants, cabs and tour operators, ferries, parks and other businesses may be shut down during our weeklong stay. I have two general questions for those who presently reside in St. Thomas. Firstly, what businesses, ferry or park closures can I normally expect on Thanksgiving week on Wed, Thur (Thanksgiving I assume most businesses closed), Fri, Sat & Sun in St. Thomas? Secondly, do you know businesses that are planning extended closures or changes in hours of operation due to Covid? Thanks for your input - I have found forum contributors on other threads extremely helpful.
Almost every thing you mentioned is open and operating - maybe with some space restrictions in some cases. There is no sitting at a bar -- but table service is allowed for instance. There is a 6 person per table limit in restaurants - businsses are open - some are under a reduced occupancy limit - there are very few things SHUT down. Masks are required everywhere except at a socially distanced outside area. [beach,park,etc]
The airport on arrival and departure seems to be the hardest area to socially distance - ferries may be limited seating too.
