    When will the government ever take measures?!?

  2. Only full lockdown will help, so get as much on the island to survive a hibernation or winter sleep of a few months.
    It doesn’t help much if there are too many exceptions made for travelers (especially politicians, and other non-essential people).
    On an island we are lucky to be able to make somehow our own biospere 3 (of course not completely, but the system of airlocks may learn us something).
