A new lockdown in Havana begins....public transport and interprovincial travel shutting down, Cubans cannot arrive to or leave from Jose Martí, beaches to close....(2021 feeling a lot like 2020)

Update: appears changes have been made. Havana’s airport to remain open, public transport operates from 5am to 9pm, bars close, restaurants can only offer take out.

After 5 days in home quarantine I went to clinic and had a second test done and got the negative results in 24 hours. Unfortunately have heard many stories of people coming to visit relatives, making a short trip and not complying with restrictions that were often not enforced.

487 new cases and two new deaths for Cuba. Much of the surge is being driven by imported cases. When I returned to Cuba in late December I was tested at the airport. No one ever informed me of the results and no one checked to make sure I was staying at home (I was). 1/2
