Restrictions remain on weddings and funerals

Funeral held in March amid COVID-19 restrictions

Cabinet Notes: Funerals and weddings remain at 25 persons because of the intimacy which is practiced historically at these events.

Attendees are discouraged from loitering at the cemeteries but to disperse following burials.

The selling of drinks on the outside of the cemeteries is also discouraged since it causes clustering and a greater probability of infectious spread.

Meantime, The Ministry of Health and Wellness will be holding a Vaccine Zoom Party on Saturday, April 24, 2021.

The event is aiming to reach youthful Antiguan and Barbudan citizens and residents primarily, who are among a group that think of themselves as invincible.

Doctors and entertainers will collaborate to get the message out to this group to seek vaccination.
