The Cabinet invited the officials of the Antigua and Barbuda Hotels and Tourism Association (ABHTA) to appear before it.
The assurance was sought by Cabinet whether, like other Hotels Associations in the Caribbean, the ABHTA would have a voluntary or mandatory policy regarding vaccination and employment at the hotels.
The officials did reveal that many North Americans making bookings for the upcoming season, inquired whether the hotels’ employees were vaccinated.
The Cabinet concluded that there is a strong desire by the travelling public to ensure that the persons with whom they must interact at the hotels, the taxi drivers, the shops, the places of high historical interest, are safely vaccinated and not likely to make them ill or to infect them.
1,900 of their of 3,600 employees are vaccinated.
