  1. Good news, now ban the cruise ships from entering. This is a seriously dangerous virus that must not gain a foothold in Antigua. Hope the government has ordered testing equipment?

  2. Will this include upcoming sailing week or the ban stops just outside of it?
    Those coming in are whom to watch.
    Please be guided by other islands. We smaller than them.
    Hope we, the country, have saved for such a time

  3. Are the Government banning any overseas visitors. Few people scheduled to arrive by plane as part of Easter break. Any update appreciated ????
