The Antigua and Barbuda Customs and Excise Division wishes to advise that it has activated a number of measures with respect to its Container Checking Department at the Deep Water Harbour as part of Covid 19 protocols.
Management was alerted by health authorities on Thursday 10th October that a family member of one of the officers was identified among persons who may have been in contact with someone who had tested positive for Covid 19.
In consultation with the authorities, management of the Customs and Excise Division have ensured that a programme of sanitisation begins with immediate effect and the officers be placed in quarantine.
The Customs Division further wishes to advise that none of its officers have been tested positive for Covid 19 but are taking these measures out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of all its employees and the public that it serves.
The response is part of internal measures that were adopted months ago in response to the pandemic geared at reducing any exposure of Covid 19 among officers or the onward transmission to members of the public.
The Customs and Excise Division will be fully cooperating with the health authorities in ensuring that they are fully satisfied that the department is safe for officers, members of the public and all other businesses to operate.
The safety of all remains our highest priority and management will continue to ensure that the various measures being used to prevent the spread of the illness are given strictest adherence.
