Antigua and Barbuda’s 39 independence anniversary on November 1 will be observed as a day of prayer and fasting.
The decision to hold this day of prayer and fast was taken at yesterday’s meeting of the cabinet.
A cabinet note the day of prayer and fasting is meant “to thank God for sparing the state from the ravages of COVID-19 experienced elsewhere.”
Independence Day celebrations have already been scaled back since there are prohibitions on mass gatherings due to COVID-19.
