Ministry Denies Visitors Tested Positive For Covid-19


Mr. Colin James, CEO of the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority, asserted that the total number of COVID 19 cases in Antigua & Barbuda remains at 26 with only 1 active case presently, as reported by the Ministry of Health, Wellness and The Environment.  The Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority has refuted claims that some passengers arriving on AA2405 on Wednesday, June 10 tested positive for COVID 19.

Visitors arriving in Antigua & Barbuda on commercial flights staying at approved accommodation are evaluated for COVID 19 with a series of health screenings, temperature checks and nose swabs taken for the coronavirus test.  Returning nationals receive health screenings and temperature checks but are not routinely tested.  Returning Nationals are required to self-quarantine for up to 14 days when their home accommodation is deemed suitable.  There is an option to quarantine at the Government’s Quarantine facility if they are unable to safely quarantine at home.

At this time all results for persons arriving at the VC Bird International Airport have been negative.  There have been no positive results to date for those entering the country.

Mr. James said, “Health Officials have put a full system of protocols in place to protect both visitors and our own people from COVID 19.  For details on these procedures please refer to”

Antigua & Barbuda reopened for tourism on June 4th and the first American Airlines flight arrived at VC Bird International Airport at 11.15 PM.

  1. Man is mortal…sinful…evil…. unholy…deceitful….. full of pride.
    When will we stand on the side of RIGHTEOUSNESS and forsake the way of WRONGTEOUSNESS !
    All of you who just foolishly follow your POLITRICKIANS……REMEMBER THAT YOU HAVE TO GIVE AN ACCOUNT TO YOUR CREATOR. Which is more profitable: to suck up to your POLITRICKIANS and then suffer the same fate of destruction with them or rather to stand on the side of Truth and transparency; then enjoy the benefit of standing on the side of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
    The choice is yours. Tell the people the truth. You lie and deceive….just to keep your “jab”. Shame !
    Your corruption and deceitfulness will come to an end.
    You cannot tell God that the Politrickian made you say it or do it. Each man/woman for himself/herself. DO NOT BE FOOLED.
    Your pastors will not tell us this. They are deceived also. They want your money so they closed their eyes to your corruption because the are corrupt also.
    FACE THE TRUTH, Antiguans: Time to wake up !
    Your riches and corruption CANNOT SAVE YOU !
    Parading like blind fools behind Politrickians CANNOT SAVE YOU.
    All you Permanent secretaries, big civil servants, private businesses….. you are being warned.
