Cabinet Notes: The Cabinet reiterated its planned alteration of the curfew restrictions during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Churches are allowed to hold services past midnight, until 1:00 am on Christmas Eve and Old Year’s Night. Restaurants and hotels are allowed the same. Shopping on Christmas Eve will end early, although the 11:00 pm curfew will be in effect, except for churchgoers.
The beaches will remain open from 5:00 am to 1:00 pm on V.C. Bird Day, December 9, a public holiday; this restriction may also be applied on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. A special dispensation may apply for beaches where hotels are located.
When the Parliament convenes next on Tuesday, December 15, 2020, the restrictions will be published, the bracelets made legal, and the regulations amended.
There is also every possibility that the Parliament will pass legislation governing those passengers who arrive Antigua without a Covid-19 negative PCR Test; those passengers will be fined, tested at the airport, and quarantined at their own expense, as is being done in several Caribbean countries.
