  1. The numbers are going up. What are you Molwyn and Gas-stone doing about it. After all you guys are magicians/genies. Just let it disappear.

  2. Lol I said this was going to happen after the bar situation in potters. Must be nice. So tell us who are getting infected the vax or unvaccinated and actually tell us the truth. Gaston ur plan for Herd immunity sucked then n sucks even more now

  3. Dont be one sided, it’s not about the bars only dont just listen to the media and liard politicians, guests are travelling here which was the cause in the first place

    • Why are you calling out Lovell? He prefers to sit on the fence, so the people will keep him right there come general election.

  4. From 0 to 33 in a few short weeks.
    USA delta variant surging, plenty local Antiguans enjoying ‘liberation’ in USA for vacations.
    Plenty tourists on island doing as they please.

    Need to get a grip on this or our level 1/green light travel status will change impacting thousands of people in the hospitality sector.

    Please Mask. Distance. Sanitize
    and consider getting vaccinated.
