The President of Operations
Peace Love Happiness / Barbuda Ocean Club
Dear Mr Wilshaw,
The situation with regards to the spread of the Coronavirus has escalated. To date, four Barbudans have tested positive for the virus. The majority of these individuals are employed by your organisation. In addition, there is daily movement via ferry of large numbers of workers travelling to and from Antigua to work at your job sites.
Over the past few weeks there has been a significant increase in the numbers of positive CoVid-19 cases in Antigua. The situation has become very concerning with the apparent inability of the medical services to cope with the worsening situation. It has therefore become necessary to bring this high traffic of persons between the islands under control as a necessary step in the effort to halt the spread of the virus.
The Barbuda Council is requesting that all operations at PLH and BOC be brought to a halt for 14 days in the first instance, beginning Friday 12th February 2021 and subject to the progression of new cases of infection with the virus. This is to allow our health care workers and medical team to carry out more extensive testing and contact tracing and reduce the chances of cross border spread that could quickly overwhelm their capacity to cope. The Council expects that you and your organisation will see the need to play your part in protecting our vulnerable community.
Thank you for your cooperation in this most urgent matter.
Paul Nedd (Mr.)
