  1. That should have done long time ago . Now the locals are getting the virus and no one knows how they got it from it have to be from the the people that are coming from the country with the virus or maybe some people are coming in the country back door. The government must look into that. This self quarantine thing is not working because some of the people that is self quarantine they are the ones that is spreading the virus to other people..how about school what is the government is doing about school .is school going to remain open?

    • We have to test before we can get into Antigua, quarantine at a resort there and test again before we can leave and get back into our Country.
