Antigua and Barbuda is seeking an explanation from Barbados as to why the country was deemed a high risk country in the island’s updated COVID-19 travel protocols.
Antigua and Barbuda was one of 14 countries added.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chet Greene has questioned the reason behind the latest move.
Greene said Antigua and Barbuda has had a handle on COVID-19.
“Clearly there’s no justification for this designation or rating of Antigua and Barbuda as a high-risk country,” Greene said.
“It is disappointing … but I want to assure the Antigua and Barbuda people and for persons wishing to come to Antigua and Barbuda that ours is among the safest jurisdictions you find anywhere in the region.”
