Latest Cabinet Announcement
i. Those entering Antigua and Barbuda who can demonstrate that they have received two jabs of the vaccine and also have a Covid-19 negative certificate will now be required to spend no more than 7 days in quarantine, down from 14 days. A Covid-19 test will be administered on the 5th day of the quarantine, and a negative test result will cause a release upon receipt, two days later.
ii. The beaches will remain closed on Labour Day, May 3, 2021, as announced earlier.
iii. Bars remain closed. A representative group of bar owners will meet via zoom with Health Ministry officials and a sub-committee of Cabinet Ministers; the officials will receive from the bar owners the safeguards which they will put in place in order to ensure that, should bars be granted permission to re-open, their proposed safeguards would protect employees and patrons from contracting and spreading the virus. This will be a first step towards re-opening, not unlike what was done by restaurateurs.
