The Cabinet agreed that there will be no shutdowns, no curfews and all vessels scheduled to arrive Antigua will be allowed to dock.
The Cabinet noted that self-testing kits are not in stock at this time; the testing kits that are in stock must be administered by a healthcare professional.
Nonetheless, anyone who tests positive from a self-testing kit will be required to be tested by a healthcare professional in order for the record to be complete; and, those who test negative from a self-testring kit may in fact have received a false negative, and can be dangerous to their family, friends and co-workers.
They too are to be tested by a healthcare professional.
There are 50,000 test kits presently in stock.
A program of training, for those using the test kits, will take place at schools, at the places where uniformed personnel are located, and at public institutions.
