FERRIES DEVOID OF PASSENGERS DURING LATEST COVID LOCKDOWN
The January three-day Covid lockdown had an unprecedented impact on our islands.
Dekkies on our passenger ferries say that for much of the Sunday of the lock-down, the ferries carried hardly any passengers.
In fact, some of the morning journeys to and from the islands carried no passengers at all.
And when they did carry passengers, they were few and far between.
One of the dekkies told the Friendly Bay Islander: “I have never seen anything like it.
“During the previous Covid lock-down, there were still plenty of passengers.
“However, this time round, everyone seemed to just stay at home,” he said.
And because it was over a three-day weekend, it gave the impression of a three-day stay-at-home holiday.
