How is Negril as a whole doing?

Just been looking at the CAM feed from Ricks and it's another day with not a soul in sight. I can't help but wonder if most places are closed.
Our Hedo has a dedicated following, so they are managing to tick over with small groups - but some places must have been empty for months.
Anyone have the scoop on over all tourist volume?

All in all, I'd rather be a hippy.

PP...I follow a FB page...nothing but Negril stuff. On Monday I saw a live feed from the beach road...no cars on it for 2-3 minutes. This morning the road was back to normal. So hopefully things are picking up for our friends.

Hmmm. Slow but not dead, that's good. Hope for normality by this fall.
I don't know of that feed (beach road), is it publicly available?

It depends on what day of the week you're looking.

I got a schedule of the curfew hours from Bunny Buchanan recently.

According to the schedule:
Sat April 4 the curfew begins at noon
Sunday April 4 is an all day curfew until Tuesday 5 AM
April 6 - 9 is a nightly curfew from 8 PM until 5 AM
Saturday April 10 a curfew starts at noon
Sunday 4/11 the curfew remains all day until Monday at 5 AM

I assume an exception is made for people traveling to the airport.

Besides all the hotels, restaurants and bars being severely affected by this, all the Jamaican workers (who are not rich people) are also severely affected by this.

Respect.
