The Caribbean Tourism Organization held a Facebook Live event on Wednesday 4/7/21 to highlight COVID-19 responses from Anguilla, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Dominica and St. Kitts & Nevis.

Haydn Hughes, Minister of Tourism for Anguilla, said there hasn’t been any community spread on the island since March of last year, which has allowed them to go ahead with festivals and other events, albeit in altered form.

“If you’re in Anguilla you feel as if there’s no COVID in the rest of the world, because we have no restrictions whatsoever.”

All but one of the major hotels are open but there are protocols in place, including tests before you fly, tests upon arrival and then move around in a bubble and check out restaurants with certified ground transportation.

Hughes said changes to Anguilla’s COVID-19 protocols should be announced next week.

Hughes said more than one-half of Anguillans have been vaccinated against the virus and that the island has even used travelling vans that give people vaccinations by the side of the road.

New protocols should be announced next week, and then perhaps again by the end of July, when Anguilla hopes to have 75% of its residents vaccinated. The plan is for visitors to have “unfettered access” with no restrictions later in the year, he said.

Thanks Ellen for posting this. That's encouraging news for those hoping to visit Anguilla without the quarantine/fee protocols and, I'm sure, for every business dependent on tourism. It will be interesting to see what these interim steps will be, particularly since they're not going to be dependent on the completion of Anguilla's vaccine campaign (Minister Hughes mentions that half the population has been vaccinated but he's only referring to the portion of the population that's received its first dose).
