Antigua remains relatively safe

Antigua’s Heritage Quay is popular with tourists

Antigua and Barbuda has continued its model tourism reopening with a new designation by the United States Centres for Disease Control and Prevention stating it as a “low-risk” destination.

Antigua and Barbuda has been moved to Level 1, the lowest risk level, in the most recent travel advisory by the US CDC. Level 1 countries include Australia and New Zealand — countries that have reported fewer than 50 cases in the last days.

 “We are delighted that Americans can have confidence in traveling to our shores,” said Charles “Max” Fernandez, Minister of Tourism & Investment. “We have worked very hard to ensure the safety of our people and our visitors and this has paid off in lower numbers of COVID infections and reduced impact on our economy. This latest announcement by the CDC is an endorsement of everything we have done.”

Antigua was among the first Caribbean destinations to reopen for tourism, exactly a year ago. Since then, it’s embarked on an exemplary tourism reopening. One of the most popular tourist attractions is the shopping area of Heritage Quay.
