Antigua and Barbuda remains on the US State Department’s list as a destination to which its citizens should avoid traveling.
In the latest advisory, the country continues to be listed among the Level 4 categorization. This means that it poses a very high risk for the COVID-19 virus.
“Given current global conditions and following the Travel Advisory update, approximately 80% of countries worldwide will have a Travel Advisory Level of 4: Do Not Travel, including Barbados, Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” the State Department says in a press release.
Tourism officials here are optimistic about the recent drop in infections, and are expecting a rejuvenated tourism season, come June. But the United States is strongly recommending that its citizens reconsider all travel abroad and postpone their trips if possible.
Meanwhile, the State Department says it will continue to work with its Caribbean partners to defeat the virus – through prevention and vaccination – and advance existing strong economic relationships.
