  1. I urge the government and police offers to look into gyms and bars continuing to operate under the new protocols. Specifically Xtreme gym and bars in point

    • ALL BARS AND GYMS IN ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CLOSED.RESTAURANTS ARE CLOSED EXCEPT FOR TAKE OUTS ONLY.THOSE ARE THE RULES IN PLACE AT THIS TIME 09/01/21.

  2. This is also a very high test positive rate, meaning a high percentage of those who got tested were positive, meaning if there were more testing done the rate of new cases would be even higher
