Public Cautioned Against Breaching Social Gathering Restrictions

 

The Police are again cautioning the general public to desist from breaching the Covid -19 Protocols on Social Gathering and to adhere to the restrictions governing the closure of public beaches for the upcoming Easter Holiday Weekend.

 

The public is further reminded that no food, no music, no liming and loitering; or any form of gathering or picnicking will be allowed to take place on any of the beaches. The mandatory wearing of face masks in public places and the social distancing protocols must continue to be adhered to.

 

Likewise, no more than five people are allowed to gather at any place at any given time, whilst also observing the social distancing guidelines.

 

Property owners are also cautioned against using their properties to have social events and private functions. Anyone failing to comply with these restrictions will be penalized.

 

The Police, along with the Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force Coast Guard, will be fully utilizing all available resources to effectively carry out regular patrols on all beaches in Antigua and Barbuda; both on land and the sea.

 

ALL beaches will be CLOSED from 7:00 p.m Thursday, April 1 to 5:00 a.m Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

 

The Police Administration encourages all to continue following the COVID-19 regulations and wishes everyone a safe and incident-free holiday weekend.

  6. The beach is just the beginning. Welcome to Antigua where we have 365 beaches 1 town in St.Johns more people are always in the city than the beach

  7. Well..I am sure some persons with boats will be out surfing the waters and having beach parties on the off shore islands. Just close your eyes and see how coast guard will open their eyes wide and ignore all the rich and connected people flout the law. It is just the way corruption works and Antigua is a “paradise” of corruption. It is built into the blood of a deceived people who happily prefer to remain deceived and corrupted. What a shame !
    The laws of this nation are only enforced for the small common man. The rich and politically connected are governed by the” do as you like laws” since they are the ones who control the government.
    Big MONEY rules. Corruption is the norm.
    All who follow the corruption and enjoy the fruits of its ways now, will one day soon wish they had forsaken the evil. Then it will be too late.
    Antiguans take a page from the Barbudans’ book. Just one page…and maybe you will learn something good.
    Moreover…. reject evil and seek good.
    This nation is doomed and the warning signs are written all over. Anyone can close his/her eyes and see….but the temporary loot is TOO SWEET.
    Gain the world and lose your soul. WHAT A PEOPLE: FROM politrickians, religious misleaders, business people, air traffic controller, calypsonians, taxi/bus drivers, statutory boards members, permanent secretaries, radio talk show hosts, journalists, political party jumpers, ….. just to list a few. The whole nation is in a NASTY, SMELLY MESS.
    The majority of young people are only interested in fetes, drugs, nasty lyrical music, fashionable clothes, fast cars, sex. Sodom and Gomorrah. It is an attitude of live fast and die because they have been cultured to believe that life is a game. No hope.
    The sad part of it all is that the people love it so. Hence, so will this nation suffer the consequences of its evil ways.
    We will reap the fruits of corruption. There is no escaping that. So close your eyes and minds and wish it away. JUST WILL NOT HAPPEN.
    Because of the rampant corruption from the top officials ….businesses and the common man….. the end is fast approaching. IT WILL NOT BE A NICE END either.

    WORLD “CRYSIS”: WAKE UP, Antiguans. CORRUPTION IS YOUR DOWNFALL
