Beaches to close from April 1- April 6, 2021

11

The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda has made a major decision to close all beaches for nearly a week.

 

It decided at the weekly Cabinet meeting that ALL beaches will be CLOSED from 7:00pm Thursday April 1 to 5:00am Tuesday April 6, 2021.

 

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government has used the closure of beaches to prevent gatherings on holidays.

 

It is believed that a recent mass gathering at a local beach weighed heavily on government’s decision to close beaches for this duration.

  1. More people gather at the Market in town than anywhere else on a daily basis and specially on Friday and Saturdays. Why they don’t say ” Town is Closed ” fridays and Saturdays.

    Actually at the beach people swim totally separately, families are in a separate area. But that is only my opinion. Antigua needs real leadership, not politicians.

  2. We will be going to hodges bay saturday and sunday in our numbers come what may we are ready to take a stand. In this time we must fight for freedom or die as slave, our group is spreading faster than the virus, the stronghold of pharoahs spirit must come down. When a guest in a hotel goes to a beach what will be the outcome ” you bringing money to a country so its ok no virus can spread?”

  3. Gaston is over, he is kill the people slowly! Raise up people we are many more than the police! Attack the beaches they are ours! Tired of these stupid rules!

  4. This is the right thing to day. We are in a pandemic. Whites are under this order also. The better be, or the ancestors will be pissed.

  5. This government dunce! We need them out! They making us slaves in our own country! No beach, sea water spread Covid? Our CMO is a real dunce! Hot sun and sea water heal all! Keeping us in our house is so unhealthy, she can’t be a qualified doctor this dunce CMO and her idiot boss Molwyn!

  7. Maybe those locals who can afford to give covid-licensed hotels a boost for a night or two this weekend and go enjoy themselves at the resort and the adjacent beach alongside the tourists from away.
    Then let’s hear what PM spouts regarding guests being able to use our beaches while poor regular law-abiding people banned from enjoying our greatest natural resource.

  8. What online information has been placed on ABTA/Ministry of Tourism channels and in hotels/AirBnB and what plans to physically advise every arrival from 1 April, they cannot step foot on sand or in sea from 7pm today until 7am on Tuesday or they will be fined for breach of protocol?
    Hotels need to find alternative wedding /proposal locations asap and cancel beach dining options.
    Have hotels been briefed how to handle transgressions? Do they immediately call the police?
    Will police and/or Ministry of Health inspectors patrol beaches adjacent to hotels over the 4-day ban & take ticketing action?

    Can you imagine the negative social media responses?
    The complaints and anger of guests to hotel staff?

    April Fool’s Day joke? Apparently not!

    Remember PM & Sir Health always telling us same protocols for all – let’s see.

    What foolishness.

  9. The Canadian Institute for International Law Expertise (CIFILE) has asked the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate individual world leaders and the World Health Organization (WHO) for alleged international crimes relating to COVID-19.

    The group states that past disease outbreaks, including SARS, suggest that the Director-General of the WHO should have notified nations well before the initial March 11, 2020, notification date. The complaint claims COVID-19 is a “crime against humanity” under Article 7(k) of the Rome Statute. The complaint further states that the ICC may exercise jurisdiction over international crimes under Articles 12 and 13 where a member state of the ICC has been affected. Specifically the complaint cites Canada as an affected signatory to the Rome Statute.
