Antigua and Barbuda: The government of Antigua and Barbuda announced the new COVID-19 protocols related to the tests of the pandemic and drooped all the necessary restrictions in the country.
Here is the full list of the COVID-19 protocols in Antigua and Barbuda:
Effective June 27 2022, RT-PCR tests will no longer be required for confirmation of COVID-19 disease in persons who test positive by an approved rapid antigen test.
This new update on the COVID-19 Testing Protocol released from the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment is based on Antigua and Barbuda’s current COVID-19 epidemiological situation, in addition to recommendations from the Pan America Health Organization’s (PAHO) Epidemiological Alert on the Rational Use of COVID-19 Diagnostic tests and the Caribbean Epidemiology Center’s (CARPHA) Interim Guidance for the Selection of Diagnostic Tests for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection.
There still remains, however, situations in which RT-PCR should be used:
The Ministry of Health reminds all health care providers that COVID-19 has been declared a dangerous infectious disease. Therefore, it is a legal requirement that all cases are reported to the Ministry of Health Wellness and the Environment’s Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit at email@example.com. Failure to do so can result in fines in accordance with the Public Health Act (6).
