  1. It’s true. No one should be traveling anywhere unless it’s absolutely necessary.

    People going on vacation during a pandemic are irresponsible

  2. ….The Boomerang Effect!
    …’tis in full affect!
    …COVID-19 is all about

    …who dead, bury!
    …to many this isn’t funny!
    …but, hey so too; when one’s in misey!

  3. This sounds like Pot telling Kettle Dem Bottom Black. The USA is the top three developed country affected by covid19. Don’t read too much into this. This is an economic decision. The Caribbean as a region has responded and coupe much better with this disease that Europe, America and India. I only see some of the Asian countries doing better. Proud to be West Indian.

    • This is wise. What America is telling its citizens is dont travel unless it is very essential, all countries should be doing that.

      • They have moved from severity 4 do not travel to severity 3 (give serious consideration to not traveling )

  4. Something is wrong here. Didn’t the US Embassy just say it was okay to travel to Antigua and Barbuda? Seems we’re getting mixed messages.

    • Its actually an upgrade to world wide travel with a few exceptions. They have in general moved glabally from do not travel (advisory 4) to 3 avoid if possible. Thing is many are safer traveling to A&B, than staying in a country with known community spread and too many persons in denial

      • No they are not safer.

        First of all, there is community spread in Antigua.

        Secondly, there is a risk that travelers bring covid here or get covid here or somewhere along the way in their travels mixing with other travelers etc.

        No on should be traveling for leisure or pleasure or vacation in a pandemic.

        • Nope, there is no evidence of such. Unless your thinking A&B has made the world record of having community spread that’s all asymptomatic . There is currently no spread from unknown sources in A&B.

  5. The USA of all places. Whose citizens have been banned from many countries across the globe and within the top five recorded cases and deaths, is saying to avoid a countrywith 3 or 4 recorded deaths.

    Wow. I feel your pain and envy. Is there anything else with which we can be of assistance to you.
    Dont forget when you normalized and recover that you should make right the WTO judgment

    Thanks for listening.

  6. We just returned from Antigua and Barbuda , having been there since Feb. Barbuda had zero cases while we were there for 93 days. Antigua had 3 deaths, all elderly and ill and 27 cases. They did have a recent spike upon repatriating citizens from DR. But we felt safe and certainly compared to other islands, or the States, Antigua was lovely and responsible.
