The Chief Health Inspector noted that in the post-vaccination period, the Covid-19 protocols will continue to apply: Hand washing, social distancing, and the wearing of masks.

The Chief Health Inspector confirmed that all curfew times remain the same and that, except for certain essential workers, 6:00 pm to 5:00 am remain in effect until March 15, 2021.

 

Bars and places of entertainment remain closed. Restaurants are take-out and delivery only.

 

 

The ability of firms to decontaminate buildings is to be certified by the Central Board of Health working with the Director of Analytics/Dunbars Laboratory. The use of acceptable chemical compounds is to be determined by the Laboratory.

  1. If the covid vaccine works, why do the protocols (masks, distancing, curfews) need to continue after you take the vaccine?

    DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE TO YOU?

    HINT: No it doesn’t make any sense !

    • I THINK THOSE WHO MADE THE VIRUS HAVE THEIR FOR US TO CONTINUE WEARING MASK AFTER TAKING THE VACCINE …

    • Because there are some of the population who won’t be vaccinated, and tourists and recent arrivals who could still be carriers.
      You, a vaccinated person go to the supermarket, you grab a cart a tourist has been using, you now have Covid upon your hands. You go home, and transfer it to your door handle. An relative or friend who decided not to get vaccinated touches it, and a bottle, drinks from the bottle and is now infected.
      Does this makes sense to YOU?

      • Makes absolutely no sense when there is a mechanism put in place that u have to present proof that u have been vaccinated when ur traveling. So that tourists that we speak of thats been vaccinated would have nothing to leave on the basket in the supermarket that we speak of.

      • “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time”

      • Just adding that once you receive the vaccination, it can take a few weeks or longer for the vaccine to take effect, depending on the individual. So it is absolutely necessary to continue with safety protocols to protect others AND yourself.

      • Isn’t a vaccine suppose to protect you from getting the disease? Think of all the vaccines administered to us as children. Don’t tell me this covid vaccine is a farce

        • This ‘vaccine’ isn’t like anything you have taken before!
          mRNA ‘vaccine’ is EXPERIMENTAL. They skipped animal testing and went straight to human trials. You are a being used as a lab rat!

          Over 900 people have DIED and thousands injured by it. You can take it if you want, that is your right, but don’t force or coerce others to take it. You don’t have the right to legally or morally do that!

    • Replying to Does this make any Sense to you. The Vaccine does not prevent you from contracting COVID, it just prevents hospitalization and death, in other words it prevents severe illness.

      • noun: definition of vaccine.
        a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.

        Translations and more definitions
        Vaccine
        A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to an infectious disease.
        So if this is the definition of a vaccine then what is this thing that they forcing us to take?

    • You need to understand vaccination. You can still get covid AND spread it after fully vaccinated
      What the vaccine will accomplish is stop severe illness, hospitalization and death

    • the reason is simple: even though vaccination may prevent you getting enough virus to show symptoms, you may still be infected, just asymptomatic. That means you could still infect others.

  2. NY variant may create vaccine issues
    In New York, a new variant that carries a mutation that may weaken the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines has been identified as the B.1.526 variant. It was first discovered in November, and now accounts for about one in four viral sequences in a database shared by scientists, according to the New York Times.
    Cases have been detected across New York City, researchers said, and threaten to once again make the city a hot spot of viral infection. They say the strain’s “unique set of spike mutations may also pose an antigenic challenge for current interventions,” such as vaccines and monoclonal antibody therapies.

  3. It’s easier to fool someone than to convince someone that they are being fooled. Even common-sense wouldn’t seem so common when you always try to rationalize the irrational. There is countless literature to warn you about these vaccines yet my people still believe that their oppressors have their best interest at heart….SMH…IF THIS ARTICLE DOESNT SHOW THE FOLLY AND USELESSNESS OF THE JAB…..NOTHING ELSE WILL!

  4. Yes Clive, all good ponts
    PLUS
    remember,
    1. You need 2 shots
    2. The vaccines prevent you developing Covid 19 so seriously that you will need hospitalization and/or may die. Vaccinated people may never contract it, others maybe asymptomatic and others may exhibit mild symptoms.
    3. Vaccinated people CAN TRANSMIT THE DISEASE!!!
    hence why Ms Martin is 100% correct – protocols need to stay firmly in place.
    Even when herd immunity is achieved, DISTANCING, SANITATION, NUMBERS LIMITATIONS & masks will continue.

    Moving from the state we are in now to fully open needs to be a gradual process, with 5-6 weekly assessments of R# before we move into next step of easement…otherwise we run the risk of being back in this situation and screwing up 21/22 winter tourism season.

    I am getting vaccinated’ and am a realistic optimist who believes in seeing how smart Nations have behaved and following suit!

    • 1.The thing that they have is defeneatly not fit to be called a vaccine. I jus gave you the definition of it.
      2.the mask is doing way more harm than good. I wish that we had a choice if we wanna wear the mask or not. Is this a democratic nation or not? Where ever this is coming from their infrinfing on the rights of the people and using their system to Carry out their order. I read an article that 23 persons died after taking the so called vaccine. The same persons with the underlying conditions that they keep mentioning after each death recorded to date in our beautiful island. Please tell me why we need to take this stuff? Convince me? Please do!!!

  5. madam health inspector can you look into that waste water at the intersection of Lauchland Benjamin Drive and the road that leads to Epicurean. There is some serious waste water there and it makes itself further down the road infront the parking of Canada Place. Please look into it!!!!

  6. What Frankenstein virus is this? We are going to get vaccinated and still have to wear masks. If the virus doesn’t get us continuing to breath in the carbon dioxide that we should be exhaling surely will.

  7. Mask wearing and social distancing will be the norm into 2022.

    The second jab of the vaccine must be administered to all who took and will take the first jab.
    Be mindful of the fact that it is yet to be determined just how long a period the vaccines will protect from serious illness.
    Hence, protocols will be in place for some time to come. A sense of normal state may only begin to reappear in 2002….maybe later for some countries.

  8. Our grand Parents knew the herbs to cure most ailments whether it be colds, fever, high blood pressure and other sicknesses. My mother had very high blood pressure and her doctor told her to drink soursop bush tea as the pills were not doing the job. Antigua is full of bush and somewhere in there is a probable cure for this ailment. The covid vaccines will not prevent this virus. The powers that be says the virus is mutating and new vaccines will have to be developed. A lot of money for big pharma.

    • @What will give us back a normal life

      The NEEM tree aka the Village Pharmacy, maiden blush, guinea hen, weedy-weedy, la lavintan, moringa, aloe, fever grass, iron grass, oregano, raw onions and dozens more can be used to flush the virus from the body and help it to build a stronger immune system which is the #KEY in treating this virus.

      Herbs are the #Healing of a Nation. There is no money in cures nor healings, and in addition they’ll prolong the lifespan of HUEmans thus creating other problems for the Oligarchs/Medium’s, Plutocrats and their henchfolks/overseers the politicians and the media.

  9. noun: definition of vaccine.
    a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.

    Translations and more definitions
    Vaccine
    A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to an infectious disease.
    So if this is the definition of a vaccine then what is this thing that they forcing us to take?

    Re: The #EUSTACHIAN TUBE.

    Dear Professionals,

    Please excuse my ignorance, because even if several of my #CERTIFICATIONS are not directly related, to the Medical Industry and Big Pharma, I am certified by the Omnipotence of our Universe(s), in more ways than one to discern and read between the lines. One such certificate is from the University of Gut Feelings, Understanding and Common Sense.
    Now could one of you anyone, even #ALL of you explain to me why this #DEADLY, HIGHLY TOXIC and Aerosolized virus known as COVID-19 can enter the HUEman body through the nose and the mouth, yet, the EARS are left out in the open to fend for themselves, even though, even though, even though for sure, for sure, for sure #ALL three to include the Nose and the throat are connected and drain into each other via the EUSTACHIAN tube?
    Therefore, again why isn’t COVID-19 setting up in the MIDDLE EAR, and then once established move into the upper thoracic cavity from the middle ears?

    Note: One of the test which you as medical professionals use to verify the presence of this deadly, toxic and highly contagious virus is to enter the Nasal cavity and direct the testing equipment(long Q-tip) to the same area where all three flows in and out of, that is #THE EUSTACHIAN Tube!

    RASpect…

  11. EDITOR ANTIGUA NEWS ROOM: Is there a reason why you did not say the name of the Chief Health Inspector in this article. Her name should be mentioned for all to see.
