The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the discussion and decision-making in the Cabinet.

The Minister of Health advised that there are only six (6) active COVID-19 cases in Antigua and Barbuda at this time.

Nonetheless, the OMICRON Variant is causing some concern since it may become necessary to reverse the Cabinet’s earlier decisions.

The Cabinet determined that visitors and returning nationals may not utilize Rapid Antigen tests to enter.

Beginning December 8th 2021, only PCR tests, no more than 3 days old, can be utilized for entry into Antigua and Barbuda.
