ANGUILLA ACTIONS ITS COVID EXIT STRATEGY

The Anguilla government is also mapping its way out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A COVID-19 Exit Strategy has been approved by the Executive Council to open the borders with some steps taking immediate effect while others will be introduced in phases over the coming months.

Key dates are April 12th, May 1st, July 1st, and a full reopening of the borders and the economy targeted for October 1st.

With a focus on the economy, the Anguilla government says its strategy is designed to safely transition the island from an extended period of economic contraction towards generating the business activity needed to revitalize the economy.

Anguilla’s Minister of Tourism, Haydn Hughes said the success of the ongoing vaccination programme is key to the reopening schedule.

“We recognize that the widespread distribution and administration of vaccine programs in our major source markets as well as here in Anguilla have profound implications for our tourism industry.

"As always, the health and protection of both our visitors and our residents is paramount, and we are once again taking a phased approach to the full and safe reopening of our island," he said.
